Economical way to keep a clean setup
I use these for a keyboard/synth setup. The color coding makes it easy to keep everything organized, and the binding reduces the chance of problems. My use is stationary, so I didn't have to have top of the line cables since abuse is not a concern. I have no issues with noise or hum either, which is great for recording. I did have to carefully remove about a foot of the binding on one end to allow the cables to reach all of the keyboards/ synths, but the other end is perfect for feeding into the mixers. I added some velcro wraps to make everything stay in place. I don't think you can beat them for the price for stationary uses.
