28 AWG 6N solid OCC silver wire and epoxy putty to finish, and voila!

 

Nice!  Adapters are always fun.

Nice job!  All that matters is that you made it and it works.

The Shiny Vampire RCA set:

 

 

 

 

 

4 wire round braid of DHC Nucleotide UPOCC copper wire

Nylon craft cord sleeving for each wire

Custom Vampire Wire rhodium plated RCA connectors

 

A couple years ago, I used to live literally around the corner from Vampire Wire and used to beg for scraps to play with.  The connectors on this interconnect set were custom built for one of Vampire Wire's customers who backed out of the purchase.  They had trays and trays of these connectors.  I was able to buy two sets of plugs and finally decided to use them.  They were pretty expensive, but gorgeously built.  Wish I had been able to afford more at the time.  The shells are heavily plated with a textured rhodium and feel wonderful in the hand.  I added some 3M DiNoc carbon fiber vinyl to the barrels on one side for giggles.

Very nice. How much did the RCA connectors set you back?

Adding the carbon fiber wrap is a nice touch, but I think the other end of the cable is feeling a bit under-dressed and would like the same treatment. ;)

Beautiful cables, FraGGleR!

I'm the opposite. I find the bare shell to be more attractive than the CF. Those plugs are just so nice on their own I wouldn't touch it.

This, the carbon fibre ruins it for me.

Sure!  Many people start with Canare or Mogami cable on their journey into DIY cables and feel no need to go further.  Both brands are used extensively on the production and performance side of the industry so they certainly won't hurt your system.
