Best place to buy XLR cables

I need to buy about 10, 10' XLR cables. I am looking for the best deal on the least expensive cables (not junk) Can anyone recommend a dealer.

(No, I don't want to make my own)

Thanks!

Fantastic lady, and does very well crafted quad cables for dirt cheap.Quick turnaround, very HQ product.

I just got 3 pairs of 30 footers and 3 pairs of 10 footers for about 90 bucks.

A friend turned me on to her, and Ive been buying from her ever since.

I like Redco too, but they dont come near what Sharon can build them for.

Have no idea how she does it.

I've found this vendor to be very good:

Standard 2-conductor mic cables (10 foot) for $6 each. Starquad cables (10 ft) for $10 each.

Redco!

you should be able to get your ten 10ft. XLR/XLR's (Redco Standard cable is great for that length) for under $125

You don't have to email and wait for a quote from Redco. Just click here and build your own, any way you want them. The price updates in real time as you select the pieces. Click order, wait for the brown truck.

Greetings Teddy.

Hope this finds you well.

Are you saying you bought 12 cables for $90? I've not understood maybe?

Cheers,

That's pretty amazing value.

What brand connectors and cable does she use?

I've purchased most of my individual cables over the last several years from Hot Wired cables.
Email : [email protected]
EBay :: http://stores.ebay.com/HOTWIRED-CABLES
Main :: http://www.hotwiredcables.com/


And I've purchaed most of my snakes and patchbay wiring from Redco.
Email : [email protected]
Main :: http://www.redco.com/


I recommend them both highly and wouldn't hesitate to order anything from either one.

I do have some nice cables left over after my upgrade if the original poster of this thread is interested. They are ProCo Ameriquad brand cables. Proco's quad cable with black Neutrik connectors and gold contacts. I have six 10 foot and one 20 foot. They are in like new condition. They sell for $20 at American Musical Supply but I will sell for $10 each and will throw in free ground shipping in the 48 US states if you buy them all.

The ONLY reason I replaced these is because I wanted to try to get to a point where all the cable in my studio is the same brand and model if possible.

I have other cables I replaced and I'll put a big list in the forsale section here today or tomorrow.

Best of luck!
