Anyone know of a supplier of spiral 6 conductor cable?
At least one of those conductors is probably shielded. You may already know this, you may not. Just FYI.
My cable got into a fight with a buffer and it lost
. Standard Horizon had no black ones left but they had ivory colored ones. I bought one, went to the auto paint
store and bought a can of black vinyl spray paint
and painted it. It's held up well.
BTW: Check ebay. You just might find a cable or an entire microphone offered.
