My need needs a stage snake for simply connecting to our mixer on stage and not have a ton of clutter every where. I'm not opposed to spending money - but I'm not that familiar with snakes. They obviously range in price. We are looking for a 25ft 16x4 snake. We just want something for minimizing take down a bit and to run les 50 ft cables across the whole stage. Figured we would park it by the drummer and have the tails go to the left of the stage where we have our mixer racked up. Any suggestions. New to this part of live sound. I've never been the purchaser. We are working on getting a rackmount splitter and a small extension snake for FOH, and to just use this small snake for our own monitor mixes via a Mackie DL1608 mixer. Also if you have any suggestions for moving/storing/extending the life of a non-pro touring level snake that would be great. Thank you for your help and advice.
