Title: Mogami W2791
Post by: obsidian on May 13, 2018, 10:02:09 PM
My Son and I have fiddled around in the past with making some (very) amature mics and we would like to give it another go. I am looking for a cable that is very thing, but EXTREMELY durable and flexible. After reading some stuff on Mogami I came across the w2791 series. Has anyone used this series before and would this "fit the bill" so to speak?

If it helps, the mic capsules we intend to use are Primo EM184 Cardioids.

This may be better for you - it has four conductors in much smaller gauge but it is almost half the outer diameter - .115 inches compared to .217 for the Mogami.

I have used it a lot in the past for making interconnects - it is very durable and super flexible.
