    Default What RCA Connectors For My DIY Snakes?

    I'm planning on making a few 2' snakes for connecting my 2d and electribe to my mixer.
    The first 1 will be RCA to RCA using this 4 channel snake cable http://www.redco.com/shopexd.asp?id=548
    The second will be RCA to 1/4in using this 2 channel snake cable http://www.redco.com/shopexd.asp?id=547
    When I upgrade my mixer I will make an 8 channel RCA to RCA using this http://www.redco.com/shopexd.asp?id=549

    My question is, will these RCA connectors be high enough quality for my cables?

    And what 1/4 in connectors should I get for the Electribe end?

    Keep in mind I'm on a fairly tight budget.
    Although I won't be replacing my emx1 cable, so I'd be willing to spend a bit more to get higher quality 1/4" plugs.


    edit--- Probably will just get this cable for my EMX1

    But the pre-made ones, mate. Custom cables are fun to make - but not worth the time it takes to make 'em. That time is better spent practicing.

    I'm going to buy the 1/4 to RCA, but all of the pre-made 4 channel/8channel snakes out there are 6+feet. That's way too much cable for me.

    If you're getting the soldering iron out anyway, just CUT one of the 6feet ones and re-solder the connections once you've got the cable to the right length.
