I know this probably isn’t the proper place to ask this, but I’m not a member of any audio forums and I suspect many people on this blog are hobbyist musicians like myself.
I’m toying with the idea of augmenting my modest home studio a little bit, and looking at getting a patch bay set up to finally cure the need to crawl behind things unplugging them all the time. But it’s only just struck me that this will end up multiplying my cables exponentially.
So I’d like to stock up on a load of XLR and TRS cables and patch leads. I usually just buy stuff in Maplin or somewhere similar. But they are pretty expensive if you are buying more than one or two.
Is there a cost effective way to do this? If you are a home musician, where do you buy yours? Is there somewhere online you can get a bulk deal?
