Thanks for info:
Ulysses: It’s interesting that I’ve done the “cut cables in half” trick before,
but when it came to DB25s and snakes it never came to mind. (Good reminder).
I’ve been soldering since age 7. It’s a basket weaving kind of thing.
(Well, DB25s don’t exactly fall in that category).
I will probably intermix buying pre-made and building cables. When something
happens that wasn’t planned on, or some new gear comes in, sometimes the wait for off the shelf cable(s) messes things up.
AMP DB25s will be kept in stock here. (Haven’t made final choice on solder,
or crimp). But I may keep a cable in stock just for cutting in half.
