Hi guys, just hoping that you guys can help here.
I have been out of the game for awhile and recently got back.
Wanted to make a cable with a certain aesthetic but forgot how to recreate this braid.
Can someone tell me either the name or help me with a tutorial for this?
This is the particular look, I've searched for flat braid or ribbon braid but it is not it.

Hi guys, I'm hoping I can get some help here. Can you guys recommend me a place to buy heat shrink like this?
I'm talking about the one going above the y-split.

Now that I think about, I could also use a nice thick piece like they use for the y-split also in these two examples.

Wirecare.com or ebay. I recommend dual-wall with adhesive for the Y-split, and single-wall non-adhesive for the cable above the Y-split.
Thanks man! I'll check out wirecare.com later today when I wake up, so far looks like the right place! Again, thanks!

Sure! I've spent thousands with them over the years, very good company with a huge selection of sleeving and heatshrink. You can get stuff cheaper from eBay but the quality is generally not as good. Sometimes they have freebies with certain purchase levels if you subscribe to their email, FWIW.

Hi folks, I have some spare coper wires, and I'm planning to do my own IEM cable (with 4.4 mm balanced + .78 2pin connectors) by myself for the first time. I just want to ask if there's any chance that I break my IEM if I will do any stupid mistake like wrong placing +/-/ground wire ? :relaxed:
