Cable Accessories & Parts
Cables are considered accessories themselves, so there's probably one question on your mind when you look at this section: "do I need accessories for my accessories?" As it turns out, the answer tends to be "yes!" The thing about cables is that they're not exactly the best-behaved parts of a pro audio setup: they can get tangled, they don't really have an established method for packing up and storing, and figuring out how best to transport them can be a real head-scratcher. That's where all of these cable accessories come into the picture. Their job, in simple terms, is to make your cables easier to handle - and cable management is something that no music professional should ever overlook. Some of the most cable-heavy setups are pro audio systems, so it makes perfect sense that a lot of the cable accessories here are aimed at them specifically. Take a look at the Cord-Lox Coil N' Carry Snake Handle, for instance: with its carrying handle and wall hanger, it's definitely a cut above any run-of-the-mill cable strap.
