  • How to Properly Wrap a Cable (the Over and Under Roadie Wrap)

    I learned this a few years ago from my boss Mitch who required us to wrap cables this way. I thought it was a pain at first but as I realized I almost never had hangups, knots, or bumpy cables I really learned to value this technique. Try it out wrapping everything from audio cables to power cords. It's a standard for me now and it's now I teach my techies how to wrap cables.

    Notice in the video that he unwinds the cable effortlessly and never has a kink or even a twist.

    I love kink-free cables!

      I had heard our tech director talking about it but I never really asked about it. I will try this and see how it works...

          I'll tell you what I did was I went to Walmart and bought those hose rollers with wheels. I got 3, one for mic cables, one for speaker cables and one for extension cords. The XLR and extension cables simply connect together end to end and rolls up and unrolls very quickly this way. The speaker cables work great because I bought some velcro straps that stay attached to the one end every time.

          Hope this helps... It has saved us tons of time and kinks. Makes it easy to transport, too.

            I'm glad that worked for you. The reasons I've never went that direction had a lot to do with stress on the cables as well as the fact that at any point in time I have 6 lengths of XLR or TRS in my gear. I don't want to unroll an entire spool of cable to get that one 2-footer I have in there "somewhere".
