That link was just an example. You have to size them up to the cable outer diameter because they come in a number of inner diameter sizes. I used to cut the mic cable lengths short and have the preamp sitting as close to the ribbon mic as possible. I've not felt the need to do that since using these.
Anybody else? Is this snake oil or real science?
