Kopul CBT-8 Reviews

Good solid tester

I got this tester when I decided to do some of my own custom wiring for a portable live sound rack, mainly for the XLR. This tester is solid, the switch knob is solid and provides a nice click. I didn't even need to read the instructions. So I would recommend, especially for the price, I think it was well worth it.

Before travelling, I wanted to make sure that all the audio cables I was bringing with me were in good working order before I packed them up. This tester gave me that confidence. It's solid and easy to use.

If I'd known that I could have bought the Kopul for the same price as the (fiarly good) copy that I originally purchased, I would have gone straight for the Kopul. It's well designed... It's well made... It works... and you can't beat the price. Pretty much the epitome of a no-brainer.

Can this test cables with different connectors on each end? For example, XLR on one end and 1/4 TRS on the other end.
Asked by: Kenneth
Yes it can .For stereo to stereo connectors there is no problem eg XLR 3 PIN TO STEREO 1/4 JACK. When one connector is wired in stereo and the second mono it will show you clearly the cables that are joined together for the mono connector.
