    Hey guys, I am looking for some sort of shrink tubing to use on a custom 'snake'. When I say snake, I really just mean 3x 1/4inch cables and 1 midi cable. I don't need to cover the entire length of the cables, but maybe every foot have a strip to keep the cables together. Any ideas? Thanks!

    What size of the tech flex do you guys use? I have a 4 cable snake (3 cables of Mogami 2524, and 1 midi cable) and I don't know what size I need.

    IMO, unless you go with a custom snake ie; pedalsnake or alike, after numoruous experimentation, the best thing that I have come up with is using gaffers tape about every foot or so. Holds good and firm, chords are still easy to coil, and doesn't leave adhesive when removed. Also very strong. I am just getting ready to do a new one for myself.

    Does it feel kinda tight, or could you potentially fit another cable of the same size in there?
