    Thomann (EU) doesn't plan to stock them. Neither does Session Music, I wonder why?

    I know EBS stands for quality, but those look rather cheap. If it was Joyo producing them no one would care for a second.
    However, I'm still interested. Somewhere I saw a price unter 10 bucks. Cannot remember where...

    I just wired up my new board with them. I happened to stop in Stockholm for the weekend last month on my way to Denmark for work and picked up a bunch from thesegoto11.se Didn't know exactly what combos I would need for my board so I bought a wide assortment.

    So far I'm pretty happy with them. As far premade cables go, I'm super happy.

    So basically the only way to get those is to go to Sweden?

    Yeah, I think best bet in the US would be to contact an EBS dealer like Bass Club Chicago or Perfect bass and convince them that they should sell them.

    Hi, I live in Chile and got a bunch of those with a local dealer. Don't know what the specs are, but I wired my entire board with them and it works just great. I'm not sure about the construction quality neither, but in 6 months I haven't had a single failure. This things are ridiculously cheap (even here in Chile, were all costs twice the original price), no extra noise added, very (I mean VERY) flexibles, the flattest connectors out there, and they come in four diferent lenghts (all very usable). I had my doubts about this cables when I bought them, but, hey, they still works and I'm very happy with my board now.

    Cool, thanks for the feedback. I'm gonna have to find a retailer that has these in stock, even if I have to import them from Chile back to Europe :D

    Oh I found them at Keymusic in the Netherlands. Those are REALLY cheap cables, I'm actually paying more for the shipping. Anyway, it'll be worth it, I'm sure.

    Hahaha! I don't know if it'll turns out the best, though the guy that owns the store is a great one. I hope Keynote will be the solution for you. In the EBS website there's information about a dealer for Austria and Germany; did you check'em out?

    The flat cable technology is widely used.

    I don't know of one EBS product that's crap. You may not like something, but not because crap quality.

    Molded cable are not necessarily crap. The problem is most cheap cable are molded and cheap cables are usually crap so it gives molded a bad name. Everything comes down to design and quality control.

    I still prefer George L's.

    Hahaha, allright, allright; I'll keep my mouth shut. Now, since you ordered them from Holland, make the whole thing right and complete that order with a bunch of stroopwafels too!

    Looks quite nice and the plugs stick out less than most pancakes, so a plus on tight boards. My OCD just can't handle too long cables though, so I'll stick with making my own. :)
