[Noisebridge-discuss] Instrument/Microphone Cable Making Workshop
jna at retina.net
Fri Jan 17 00:10:36 UTC 2014
I have made and repaired literally hundreds of these cables.
Neutrik XCC or XX series.
Cable: Canare Star-Quad
These parts are basically the audio industry standards.
Tips: Make perfect solder joints. Never, ever make cables out of phase. +
and - and ground are important, in the right order.
I'm not going to attend, I've done this too much already.
