Any random brand or something more specific?I have used a bunch of cheap cables from Amazon. Have not yet had a problem, and I've been using them for years.
Cable Matters, Amazon Basics, and GLS have all worked well for me. Oddly enough, I've found that XLR cables seem to be more resilient than guitar cables, for some reason. I've also had some cheap guitar cables go bad, but not the mic cables.Any random brand or something more specific?
I just received my order of mono price mic cables. The price was unreal. Hopefully, they hold up. Im not abusive and know how to coil. Fingers crossed.ive bought a gang of mono price ones in the event they take a dump I have another on the fly.
same with guitar cables / patch cables for pedals
Hosa has really been great for me. Guitar and mic cables. I’ve not had one fail, and I have used their quarter inch cables for years.Anyone got a lot of experience with a solid reasonably priced cable?
Hosa is everywhere but nobody ever recommends. Are they bad? Ive used their patch cables and they worked and didnt fail.
Pro co, whirlwind?
I can solder pickups but never had luck with cables.i used to buy mogami mic wire by the foot. if you can solder it is imo the way to go.
Never heard of those.I work as a soundman and we use Van Damme cables pretty much exclusively.
Im not good at soldering cables.I used to make all my cables, now it’s cheaper to just buy pre Made cables.
I would look for cables without molded connections.
that way they can be fixed, if they fail.
a molded connection type will have to be cut off, and then you need to buy a new xlr. To fix it.
non molded ends are an easy fix, when they go bad, and they will go bad…..just something to consider.
I got mono price ones. They seen sturdy so far. The rehearsal studio will remain set up permanently so, cables will rarely be moved.Honestly have no idea what our band used to use. I’m sure they were a cheaper house brand, tough. Tried not to step on them, yank them and coiled them after a gig. Never had a problem. I’ve had shorted name brand ones in a learning studio but they were abused by students. I don’t trust my soldering enough to make my own and never tried since the band had zero problems with what we had.
So whatever you get, just take care of them. I’ve seen a lot of people ruin all sorts of electrical cords by coiling them incorrectly over time.
