1/4" bantam patchbay

1/4" bantam patchbay Message: Hi there, I have an old neve console and require more patch points for the studio I'm about to move into. I need the old 1/4" bantam style patchbay. I'm feeding the patchbay via db-25 connectors. I need approx. 36 points. Do you have anything currently available? Also needing 1/4" bantam patch cables. Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers Richard
Hey Richard,

Yes sir, however all the patchbays I have are standard 19" rack mount. If you need the smaller side-car type unit, I do not have. 
I think you will find that what you are looking for is called B-Gauge, Military-Style or Long-Frame 1/4" TRS patchbays and patch cables.
What would work fine for you is one of these:

Also if you are wanting to do the wiring, I have these:

The only long-frame cables I have today are twenty that are four-feet long and do not have the red-plastic strain-covers. Price $5.00 ea. 
The way to know if the cables are long-frame and not standard TRS is by looking at the tip of the connector. The standard has a heart-shaped tip and the long-frame cables have a ball shaped round tip.
The long-frame 1/4" TRS patch cables can be quite costly new:
