Also I saw some LOD's have 3 wires and some 4 wires. Why 4 wires? Sorry I am a newbie.

Here's an image of a Sennheiser cable that I recently completed.  The paracord color / pattern is called "Starry Night".  Not all vendors carry this particular color / pattern, so you do have to search a bit to find it.  However, I am glad that I purchase 100 feet of it as I know I certainly will be using more of it or other cables to come.

 

This is a 9 foot Sennheiser cable that features the Starry Night paracord pattern that was utilized for the sleeve on the cable. This sleeve really provides a lot of class to the appearance of the cable itself.

Speaker cable made from 2 Tara Labs Prism Omni cabels per side. 2 wires form 1 signal.

Sleeved in paracord 550 (stretched during weaving to make it fit snug) in black with a white reflective stripe & some sort of olive green (blue'ish).  Really pleased with the color combo, looks really awesome.

The straight banana plugs I bought a while ago from ebay, cant find them anymore. They are heavy beryllium copper / bras. Other banana connectors are Nakamichi's.

Both ends just get bundled right into the connector. No heathshrink mess.

Total length is about 2.5m. Made twice for each side offcourse :).

Some other cables I made a while back. Been meaning to upload these for a while now. The chit chat in here made me put it off.

 

mini to 6.3mm : bright red / black type 1 paracord.

Pallics mini jack, Neutrik. Single sleeved strands from Canara Starquad. Pallics side component glue has been used instead of heathshrink to keep the cable fixed

 

Mini XLR (akg) cable's.

Single strand Canara starquad / Type 1 Paracord bright red. Switchcraft connectors if I recall. Love the 6.3mm jack.

 

 

Mini XLR. Canara mini starquad with outer shell & metal braiding removed. Black 550 Paracord (very tight fit!)

Acrolink mini jack. Neutrik mini xlr. Again component glue used to keep cable into place inside the jack.

 

 

HD600 cable.

Transparent connectors, only time I've used heathshrink to keep them secure. Splitter is a housing from a mini jack.

Canara starquad single wires sleeved in Type 1 again.

Have a red version of this one aswell. (bordeaux red)

 

 

 

 

 

Again a mini XLR AKG. First cable I made with the 4 wire braid. Same as above. Type 1 paracord, single wire canara starquad, neutrik jacks.

 

 

 

First recable I ever did. My Denon.
Canara starquad mini, neutrik jack. Viablue sleeving.  Too bad for the heathshrink with writing on it :<

To minimize the posting of items that are not pictures of cables in this gallery thread, there is an option to provide a member with comments on their fine work.  In order to provide a comment to the person who built a neat cable, you just need to click on the image.  Towards the bottom right section of your screen, you can apply some comments that the poster of the pictures will see and be able to read.  This will ensure that this thread remains a gallery thread where we can just be able to look at some beautiful "eye candy" cables.

 

The image below depicts how comments can be utilized.

That Denon cable is sweet!  I would remove the text on the y-split with the tip of a glue gun.  While the gun is hot and the tip is clean, just rub the tip on the text until it is gone.

No problem.  I was just simply pointing out that there are other ways to comment on pictures.  gs1000.gif

 

I have no interest in the other threads.  They are not labeled "Gallery".   wink.gif
