LOOKIING FOR: dual male mini-xlr y splitter to mini-jack
« on: February 21, 2024, 03:24:27 PM »
my current splitter (see pic) has a short somewhere so it puts loud crackles into my recordings when moved around.   

I'd like to get a new one, but i can't find anything like it on ebay, or just generally searching the internet.

i'm pretty sure the one i have was custom-made by the person i bought my audio-technica lav mics from (several years ago).

i am unsure how to create another, or where to purchase one from, anyone have any advice for me?

thanks!

Hosa has a wide variety of off the shelf splitters like this.

I think this is what you need?

Edit to add: Ted will do a fine job for you as well if you need a custom length. I have many of his cables and splitters in my bag.

A few years ago, someone on TS told me that making your own cables was simple enough that anyone could do it. I now agree and have made a lot.

Also, I have had amazing luck with PerformanceAudio.com both as a supplier of stuff to make my own, and also the custom cables they make for me are beautifully made. No affiliation, but they are the cheapest I have found for supplies and for custom cables, but their customs were nicer made than others I have ordered (never tried Ted's though).

Also can vouch for Ted. He does fine work and he's had lots of practice  :)

If he can't for some reason Seismic makes just about any cable config and has a responsive customer service line.
