No, i will likely need to order a set and see if i can make the connector as these are proprietary connectors. Look a little like mini mic connectors.

 

Heard about these new connectors a couple months back, but first time i have seen them.

 

Do you think it will take you a while to have that ready? I was thinking to change my order from JH-3A to Roxanne..

Awesome build quality? Check

Teflon insulation so the copper is shiny? Check

IEM compatible? Check

It's PE, as with all my cables, Teflon is too stiff and very microphonic.  It's a new softer PE insulation which is also clearer and more flexible.

 

Don't accept checks :biggrin:

Frank,

Your soldering bench is amazing - the lair of a craftsman! So much has been accomplished there...

Can you please tell me who makes those helping hands?



Thanks,

Mike

That's a great price, they are a lot more in the UK, like everything else. Great to work with, although the clamp force it quite high, so you would need to cut the springs.

that was cute

 

Also Sorry Frank that everything in the UK cost so much... Honestly... I think it's still cheaper to import some things for you guys, I mean when ur currency trades $1.6 for 1GPB... pretty sure that extra .6 will cover them fees

You also have to consider shipping costs and delays. so with single items or cheaper items it's just not worthwhile. Many delivery companies also charge you their own processing fee, which varies from £10-15 per package as they pay the charges for you and get it released from customs, even if the package is only valued at $25.

 

For parts, each country has it's own distributor and usually they are not authorized to sell to dealers in different countries.

 

I should move to the US :biggrin:
