Kind of looks like the outer wires are twisting in sorta-figure-eights around two main wires... are the looping wires the shield?

Where do you all get such nice Cotton/Nylon sleeving? I love the nylon feel, like the stock Audio Technica cable for the A700. I assume that's nylon, not cotton. Where can I get the Nylon, I can't find it anywhere. Thanks?

Nice thin pe insulated cable Justin.

 

Looks extremely flexible.

Must be great for OTG.

 

I can see you're using one of those 3.5's found on ebay haha.

Looks slimmer than i initially thought.

Thanks, Tim.  The 3.5mm are actually from a vendor on Aliexpress.  Originally they only had TRRS plugs in this style, but they were able to find me some TRS.  They have 3 other colors.  I didn't like the shells of the ones I found on ebay.  Nice quality, great price.  Only connectors I have found outside of Oyaide that will fit into a cased iPod, though I did see that Ramelectronics has a new plug that could work.  Haven't tested it yet.

Very simple recable of my D2000s.  Wire is from Frank @ Toxic Cables (thanks Frank!) and is a wire he was testing that is super flexible.  Unfortunately, pictures can't really show how flexible this wire is.  It was so flexible, that I had to do a much tighter braid than I usually use to give it a little bit more structure.  

Great work, Justin. 

 

That wire is indeed extremely flexible, i actually prefer my wire to be slightly stiffer. Will stick it on eBay soon, for a very reasonable price.

Yes, i am currently selling them, not had a chance to list them yet. 

 

They will be a little on the pricey side, at £10.50 each.

 

The ones for sale, are the ones without the logo.

Here some pic:

 

 

2 colors wire for training.

The looping wires consist hot and neutral conductor (black is hot and blue is neutral).
For more information you can see the patented geometry here:

I might have missed where you posted it, but what kind of wire (solid, stranded, gauge) did you use?  I might try this without the buckshot and tube to show off the braid.

Is there any special trick to stripping the outer shielding off of Mogami or Canare cable?  Just wondering if there is an easier way to do it then snipping a tiny bit at a time with wire cutters.

post #11772 of 13926
Remove the outer rubber jacket, which you can do with a knife and tearing. When that's all off, snip a few CM of the shielding to loosen it up, then PUSH it up off the cable. The shielding weave will compress and expand in diameter, so it comes off fairly easily.

Thanks.

 

I wasn't sure if that would be a good way or if something like a coaxial stripper would work.

Send him a PM and I am sure he will know what wire you are talking about.
