Re: (NEW) rack to floor cables??

Actually, Pro-Co makes multi-core cable that is quite affordable. From 2
pair to 26 pairs. Add some barrel connectors for each end and your setup
will never be faster. My company specializes in control solutions and
modifications for musicians. If you have additional questions or want a
quote for your project (parts or completed), please let me know. All
advice is free...

Be Well
