Road Hog cables have a PVC cover, not rubber.  Rubber has a MUCH better hand.

Sorry for misleading people, I never looked it up. It looks and feels like rubber, softest cable covering I have felt, but in fact it is soft PVC in matte black.  My bad.  20 lashes.

hey, no big deal Mark (BTW... good name).  I'm probably hypersensitive to specifics concerning cables.

I bought 5 XLR cables and about 5 TS (i.e., instrument) cables from Monoprice about 6 months ago, and they have been dropping like flies. Half of the cable connectors have had to be resoldered. Today I discovered that a 50 foot XLR cable's shield is shorting with one of the wires--even after I removed both connectors. I was pretty careful to make sure I did not cut too deeply when I removed the outer casing--so I don't think that caused the short. So the short must be somewhere down the cable.

Do you have any suggestions for a brand of good quality cables at a reasonable price?



I use Whirlwind MK series mic cables. I have had most of them for over 10 years without a single failure.  When I make my own, I use the same Belden cable with the copper braided shield and the long barrell Neutrik XLR connectors that Whirlwind uses.

I've always had good luck with Conquest Sound's RA2 series cables. www.conquestsound.com
