Less details outside rig = less trouble and stuck situations (pockets).

Don't think I'd have the skills for that hahaha, plus I don't keep the "stack" in my pocket as I always transport them in a zippered soft pouch.


I think my stack is what some would call "transportable" rig

I'm new to this sub, but i've been wanting to make a cable for a while, despite knowing very little about electrical engineering and such. I've glazed over some post here but everything looked too complicated. Today, while I passed the heat shrink tubing aisle at Fry's electronics, I stopped and thought, "What the heck, let's give it a shot."


Anyways, here is my first cable! :) It's only a few inches long because I needed a shorter cable to connect my O2 amp to my PC front jack. The one I had before was too long and looked ugly hanging off of my computer. (This might potentially be a good portable rig cable).


This is an amalgamation of a cable that had bad wires, and another cable that had bad connectors.


Despite only having an old radio shack soldering iron, some scrap parts, and a cheap harbor freight multimeter. I think it came out rather well. (Oh, and the heat shrink tubing is supposed to be clear. But I got frustrated looking for a lighter and ended up using a candle. Hence the smoked tubing, and the mess that's not on camera, lol :rolleyes:).



Oh! And, yes, it works. :D
