|Still hand-made in Rochester NY, USA|
|We start with CM rated cable designed to our own specifications, available from 6 to 58 channels.||Next, after removing the outer jacket, industrial strength shrink tubing is applied over each channel and color coded in groups of 8 channels. Then an extra layer of shrink is applied to each tip for extra strength where it will be exiting the inline connector.|
|Every Whirlwind Medusa, from the MINI-6 to our giant Concert Systems are built with the same attention to detail that you see here.|
|All fanouts feature genuine Whirlwind connectors. Mic channels are numbered and return connectors are lettered by engraving the metal barrel with large, easy to read graphics. Note clear tubing over each group of eight channels and larger tubing over entire fan. These can be slid down over each group and over the fan when disconnected to prevent tangling during storage and transport. Another extra detail found in all Whirlwind snakes.||One of the best ways to judge a snake's quality is to look inside at what isn't usually seen. If it looks this good inside, you know there will be quality built in throughout. Wire ties are found at all critical stress points and the heavy gauge steel box features a true Kellems strain relief and grip.|
