Subject description: I need some cables from GC or similar

Hi, I got a set of these hosa patchbay cables a while back to use with my MS-20 and I love them so much I want to use the 3 foot variety for my (in progress) modular.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

CPP-890 is the model number I need. The problem is, here in Canada they cost over twice as much as in the U.S. and all the online retailers want $25-$60 for shipping. WTF is that? $60 to ship a couple little packs of cables?

Anyways, if they have them at guitar center or something similar in your area please let me know the base price and how much you want to ship them to Canada(including handling, finders fee). I need at least 2 or 3 packs. Thanks.

I know first hand how shipping to Canada sucks. If you are close to the border, one trick is to ship it to a UPS store and wander across the border to collect, they will hold it for a small fee.

Thanks for the tip but unfortunately I hardly ever find myself crossing the border.

You may want to check out ebay. I've purchased some great cables from
"JDS Promotions". I personally like his cables better than the hosa cables (I have both). His cables are more flexible which I think make patching easier.

His Ebay stores is:

Here is a link for 3 foot cables
