This item is legit. We are running this product in our building for youth group programming at our church. The cords are robust, clearly labeled, sturdy and the quality on the inside of the box is great (took it apart to see)! Sound is clear and crisp for vocals and instruments.

As with most gear you get what you pay for, but this included a headache and pain in the butt. I was excited once the package arrived and quickly attached the 16x4 snake to my mackie onyx mixer in the studio. Flipped on the mixer and tested it with my PA system to find the most obnoxious hum came out with no microphones plugged in. Obviously I was disappointed and sent the product back and requested a new one. Then once again excited when it arrived, but only to the same freaking issue. So rather than send back again me and our studio tech opened the connections and box to find out Pin 1 and Pin 3 connections where swapped. Basically the ground connection was wired wrong. This was on all 20 points on the box and 20 points on the cable ends. So after a long time of tedious soldering and correcting a problem that should not have occured in the first place I finally have a working snake. The order was shipped on January 30th and after sending back the first defective snake and then repairing the second defective snake I finally have a working snake as of March 27th.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Stage Snake:

    Our band just recently took a month long booking at a rather large venue. They have a serviceable EV p/a system , but I prefer to use my own ( Mackie mixer, QSC power amp, JBL speakers ) ... The snake allows me to get Mics where I need them without a lot of stage clutter and no loss of sound quality. Venue owner wants one so he can run from stage to sound booth for future bands ...

        Comments about Musician's Gear Stage Snake:

        Bought the 12x4 to use as a backup at a great price for used. Got an email back from MF that they were sorry, but they didn't have the item they thought, and were going to upgrade me to show they were sorry for inconvenience. They shipped me, in perfect condition (ie, well-packed, etc) a brand-new 16x4, and it now supersedes my 'old' snake as the first string. You cannot beat the customer service here, and I've been buying from MF for five years. Highly recommended.

              Used this to set up the sound system at my church. Easy to use, well organized and a very quiet unit NO NOISE. The worship hall is full of florescent lighting too. Great for a permanent set up and/or for a semi-pro, weekend performing group. Was able to push powered signal to the speakers on returns with no problem. Only concern was the plastic connector to the box itself which secures the snake wire. Not sure how durable for repeated touring. But overall and nice strong unit for the money!

                      I purchased this 8x4 snake 9 months ago but just plugged it in to the PA for the first time. I got a horrible squeal on every channel before I even connected any mics. I haven't opened up the box yet, but I'm guessing I'll find crossed connexions as other reviewers have found.

                      Like the majority of others who have reviewed this snake, my problem was the same. Each and every send and return was mis-wired. The shield/ground and negative leads to pins 1 & 3 were reversed and had to be corrected for the snake to function properly. I have few complaints about the company up to now, however this appears to be a problem that musicians friend would prefer to ignore than correct. It is because of that this that I leave this review so others may be aware. (Caveat Emptor)

                          This snake immediately introduced an unacceptable amount of noise into my mic mix. I tested it wth many combinations of mics/amps/cables with the same noisy result.
