XLR Recommendation?
« on: June 23, 2003, 11:06:45 PM »
Looking for a recommendation for a pair of xlr cables.  I am using oktava mk012's and running them into a edirol ua5.  Would like to spend about 25-30 for each or less if possible.  Setting up my first rig, so i'm looking for something that is good, but doesn't have to be the best.

Thanks,
Adam

Building your own would be the cheapest, and probably the best way to do it. I'll go find some links for you.

Thanks for the tip, I think I'd like to buy a pair for now...I'm really not too good with these sorts of things.  Maybe over time I'd be able to do it.

Thanks,
Adam

Canare Star Quad terminated with Neutriks. As a personal recommendation, I'd get your two cables as different colors. I have mine black and gray, but they come in many others.

I think thoes are a little too expensive for you if you don't build them yourself http://www.micsupply.com/canarexlr.htm . You might want to look around at musiciansfriend.com or 8thstreet.com

Yeah, those are about double I'd like to pay.  I couldnt find them on masterpieceav.com or 8th street.  Is "Canare" what I should be searching for?

Thanks,
Adam

www.kindkables.com  Ed is more than fair for his prices and he has made all of my cables.

Wow, I must have gotten a great deal on mine. I picked up my pair on ebay. They're new and definitely done well. I got a pair of 25-footers for $40ish + shipping. Same part numbers as mentioned. Sometimes you just get lucky.

Actually, I got them because I was unlucky. One of my old "generic" cables shorted out, and I didn't want to risk damaging the phantom power supply or my mics, so I got rid of them ASAP and went on ebay the next day.

Markertek and Masterpiece AV both carry Canare/Neutrik cables:

Masterpiece AV 10' = $35/each
Markertek 10' = $18/each

These are for identical cables, mind you.

They both offer other lengths.  Here're Markertek's:

http://www.markertek.com/MTStore/product.CFM?BaseItem=SC3XXJ

To find the Canare/Neutrik cables at Masterpiece AV, go to the Browse Our Catalog section, Cables & Connectors | Cables - Microphone.  The ones you want are listed as "Masterpiece - SCNNXXJ', where NN = the cable length.

BUT, for what it's worth, these cables are identical to the lower priced ones at Markertek - Masterpiece AV even uses the same part number!

Only real difference - Markertek jumps in length from 10' to 25', with no 15' available, but I bet they'd make 'em for you if you just ask nicely.
