happy saturday folks!

I was wondering if anybody from the community makes patch cables for
the GCX units or can point me to a place that has cables ready to go. I have a drawer for my pedalsand the standard cables are way too big. I don't have the right equipment to do it myself.

I had Redco make me custom cables for my rack drawer and GCX. It wasn't cheap but it was worth it.

I did stereo Mogami cable (TRS) to halve the size of the pigtail with two straight end connectors on the GCX side and two of the shallowest right-angle connectors they had for each cable. If I remember correctly, I did eight pairs at 42-inches each and it worked well, plenty of room for the drawer to open. Cost $250 or so.
