VDC’s solid cored & shielded Etherflex is pretty good but the additional strengthening plastic centre core does occasionally throw problems with termination as well as the extra expense of the shielded cat5 plugs.

We use the Kelsey Duracat as well which is much much cheaper (about £1 metre IIRC) and seems to have performed pretty well considering its much less well built and has a thinner OD. Good value though.

Either way stuck on a nice Schill (Neutrik) drum it makes for an easy life.

I do know a GLD owner that seems quite happy to carry his box of cheap unshielded Cat5 around and stick new plugs on every other show. Cheap but not recommended….


Just remember kids no matter how good your mixing is you can’t polish a turd…
