I just finished DIY'ing a new cable for my Mad Dogs. What with the dearth of aftermarket cables (and a lack of suitable 90 degree connectors) I figured some of you might be interested in making your own.
The wire is Mogami 2893 stripped out to its individual strands and sheathed in #1 paracord. I used a Switchcraft 6.3mm on one end and a Neurtik 90 degree 3.5mm on the other. I had to file the Neutrik plug down a bit before it would fit, but after some work it snaps into place with a positive *click*. The cable itself is a 4 cord round braid, even though I only needed 3 wires. I just like the way the 4 wire braid looks better than a simple 3 cord braid.
This cable took quite awhile to make, mainly because it's so long (12 feet) but I think it turned out nicely. And if I were to give some advice to those trying to make their own for the Mad Dogs, it would be to have patience while filing down that plug!
