How did you do the marbling? My guess is to use a piece of black epoxy and a piece of white epoxy and fold them over each other, but I would worry about overdoing it and ending up with grey epoxy.

cogsand gears - what kind of right angle connector is that? I like it!

My guess is a standard straight plug (with custom molded body of course)

But that could be completely wrong

This zebra LOD is really cool. Another piece of art.

 

But isn't the wire a little short? There doesn't seem to be much left to reach the input of a portable amp. Could you post a picture of it used in a setup? I'm curious how much you have to bend it...

He uses right-angle Neutrik's as far as I know. They're great for DIY as they basically strip right down to the bare essentials.

I love this, very creative. May I ask, why is the wire so short between the 3.5mm and the LOD?

Correct! Yes, it is indeed a fine line between black and white patterning and grey.

Its a Neutrik right angle without the body. Plus I cut all the solder tabs shorter.

Thank you. This is why its so short: Im not a fan of too much excess cable. Makes it more likely to get caught on things.

Gorgeous braiding, whoever did it (girlfriends are quite often involved in this process among this thread's members :)! Very neat and stylish cable.

How did you connect/solder 8 strands to the RCAs? 3 strands to each channel + 2 to ground?

It's 4 conductors on the center and 4 on the ground so it's 8 strands per interconnect. Soldering 4 20awg conductors onto connectors is absolutely brutal.
