MS-CABLE-18

The patch cable set contains 18 cables in six different colors, (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple). This allows users to more easily track cable I/O when creating heavily-patched sounds. The cables come in two lengths; twelve are 250 mm/9.8 inch. The remaining six cables are longer, at 750 mm/29.5 inch, which can be used to connect other MS-20 minis or other external gear. Expand the potential of your MS-20 mini!
