Custom Cables Included with Gear Purchases
Did you know you get custom cables included with most gear purchases from Pro Audio LA? A few exceptions apply including items already on sale or products otherwise already reduced in price like demo & used products or when discounts or financing are applied. Patchbays also do not quality for any free cabling. We hand-build our custom cables and snakes using the highest quality components available. Generally, our cables are built from Mogami, Gotham, Grimm, Canare, & Evidence Audio cabling and hand-soldered with Neutrik connectors. On some occasions, we can use different components to suit your cabling needs. A custom cable credit can be added to your equipment purchase.

Shipping Policies
We generally ship orders domestically via FedEx 2Day including tracking information. We have found this to be the most-reliable shipping method. Size restrictions on this FedEx service require that we use UPS Ground for items that don't fit into the boxes FedEx provides for the 2Day shipping program. We also offer UPS Ground as a shipping option at checkout for shipments within the USA. If you prefer an alternative shipping method, please contact us, and we can quote you a price for your desired shipping method.

A signature is required at the time of delivery for any packages valued over $500. Packages valued under $500 are not shipped with a signature required unless that option is chosen at checkout. Pro Audio LA is not responsible for any packages that are "lost," "stolen," or "missing" after delivery. If your location is not secure, please be sure to choose a shipping option including signature at checkout. Lastly, please be advised that all Pro Audio LA shipments are blocked from being able to be re-routed for delivery to an alternate address. We apologize for the inconvenience, but address changes are a common facilitator of fraud, and we have a firm policy of not allowing our packages to be re-routed.

Order Modifications
Our order fulfillment process is very precise and organized to ensure orders are fulfilled accurately and within the timeframes indicated in our order confirmation emails. Because requests to change order details require careful attention and administrative time, in cases where an order has not yet begun being manufactured, any requests for changes to orders (cable details, for example) or requests to combine orders (to save on shipping charges etc.) will incur a $10 administrative fee. Charging this fee helps us keep our everyday prices as low as possible.

In cases where an order has already begun being manufactured, we charge a minimum fee of 25% and up to 50% to modify order details (depending on the stage of manufacturing the order has reached). If an order is completed and ready to be shipped, we are not able to modify the order. Please be advised that orders cannot be cancelled after they have begun being manufactured. Requests to cancel custom cable orders that have not yet begun the manufacturing process will incur a $15 cancellation fee to cover administrative time (this helps us keep our everyday prices as low as possible).
Order Processing Times
Our custom cabling is built to order in our Glendale, California shop. We sell handmade products directly to end users at roughly 40% off retail prices. Lead times for our custom cabling varies based on the size of an order as well as the volume of orders in the queue at the time an order is paid for. A ship-by date will be emailed to customers within one business day of an order being placed. Below are estimated lead times based on sample order sizes. The larger the order, the longer the lead time.

  • (3) to (8) individual cables, OR (2) to (4) DB25 to DB25, OR (1) to (2) DB25 to XLR/TRS snakes ships in roughly 3 weeks
  • (9) to (16) individual cables, OR (5) to (8) DB25 to DB25, OR (3) to (5) DB25 to XLR/TRS ships in roughly 3 weeks

  • When our shop is extra busy, naturally our lead times tend to increase. Please rest assured that we always work as fast as we can without compromising quality, and we're working diligently to keep our lead times reasonable. Thank you for keeping us busy!
