If only they had a few velco ties around these cables-somebody would shoot themselves

I have mic cables built as I described in my previous post still in inventory that I made in 1980.  Not many of course but they take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.  Makes for some serious customer loyalty. Neutrick are fine, even preferred for snake fan outs and patch cables but for stage mic cables that get their ends slammed day in and day out give me a Switchcraft A3F any day.


Riley, you are the first person I've ever heard express a preference for Switchcraft.

Heh, heh ... Got to play my old geezer card again.   ;D

I agree, and I have said so in these forums before.

I love how the feeder cable is buried under everything else.

It better be at the bottom, because if I've got to clean that mess up, and have to dig out every single cable from underneath the cable that gets pulled last, I'm going to be REALLY pissed off.

Neutrik connectors (the old ones - hate the new ones) with colored boots (or colored cable).

Horizon LoZ1 or Wireworks Musilux cable.

Why? I have found some XLR sockets (eg, outputs from PRX618S-XLF) with which the old XLRFs are much harder to use and the new ones work better. What situations or features make you hate the old ones?
