Any one know any good place to the reasonable priced good looking 4-pin xlrs?

Thanks

There basically aren't any beyond Neutrik, Switchcraft, and their clones. You could do what I did and use the 4pin insert of a Switchcraft into the carbon fiber shell. It isnt perfect, but it has held up for several months. If you find fancier 3 pin XLRs that you like, you might be able to do the same.

Which actually winds up being one of my more expensive options. Granted, I reckon I could use the other 240 feet for other projects....

Well, there is that.

 

I have used the 2534 (clear sheathed strands) in a 4 wire cable and I do like the look of it.  I plan on sleeving my 2893 with this Paracord, which is cheap enough.  That way I don't mind the fact that the conductors are different colors.  If you want the sleeved look, it's a good product and they ship quickly (to the US anyway, which is why I mentioned getting a box at the UPS store if you're close enough to the border).

Nice!

 

The way you have it arranged looks a little like Elmo :)

I am a little new to this but I am in desperate need of a 3.5mm trrs to 4 pin xlr. Could anyone upload a wiring diagram as to how it could be done? I'm thinking I'll have to build one myself.

To all of you with experience with 550 paracord, would it be large enough to sleeve a standard mains cable over the existing plastic insulation?

If not, witch type of cord can I buy to do such a job? Thanks

Don't think I've ever seen any like them.

They look very good!

Kudos


The connector i got as a sample from connector manufacturer, it's similar with valab but the back housing and locking system are different.
I modified the screw and engrave it ;)

Thanks. I initial wasn't going for that kind of look. I was original going for the just the red and black look, but then the gold/yellow part of the connector will look out of place. Hence why I got some sleeving with a golden accent to it. I do agree with ya, first thing it reminded me of is a snake of some kind.

It's just a red canare l-4e5c mini star-quad, covered with a regular 1/8" wire sleeving with a golden accent to it. I got the sleeving from ebay.
