    Default Cable Mgmt, how the hell do you guys do it?

    It's driving me crazy. I have cables upon cables and just want to clean up the mess. What are some of your guys methods for doing this

    I use Velcro ties. Bought a pack of 100 off eBay for about $10.

    Velcro ties are great for running wires. I use about 60 of these at each gig to keep wire runs clean.

    I also run wire loom attached to the inside of my trusses, along with some of it being pre-wired.

    Custom leads. I make all my own leads. Each is the perfect length. Then use zip ties to keep it all neat.
