Hosa cable. I shudder to think what age the person was that solderd this. Needless to say I won't be buying this brand again.

Brand?... tell us so we can all avoid it please

If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

It's a 'Hosa' brand. I got it from Soundhouse. In future I am going back to making my own. This was bought to link the DJM to the mixer line in. I had trouble this weekend opened it up and found that. Surprised Soundhouse are usually pretty good. Maybe an own brand thing.

At least you were able to open it up & repair. A lot of those use sealed connectors that are impossible to open. And the section there looks good. I´ve seen some (mainly RCA-RCA) that are made with around 2 strands of hair-thin copper/feed.   Ouch

I am shocked to see such work from "Hosa" as they have been around for decades. You should contact them on your findings. http://hosatech.com/

I buy cheap cables with good connectors, and then check every one before use.



These ship for free, and sell for less than I can buy the connectors for.

I generally only make my own. Decent quality cable and neutrik connector. The only others I've got are blue Arans own ones which seem very good for the money, and they warranty them I believe. False economy buying cheap cables, doesn't look good on you when the lead singer drops out after moving a cable.

What part of 'I buy cheap cables with good connectors, and then check every one before use.' didn't you understand?

I usually by 'Canare' cable and make up my own. was lazey in this case. Like djk said cheaper that buying the conectors. This was a pair packaged seperatly. The other one was near the same. Soundhouse cheapo cables have plastic sleeve on the pins. Hosa don't by all accounts.

I have to re-work about one-in-ten of the cheap cables I buy.

So what?

They come in six different cable colors, and have three different colors of heatshrink.

In the end, it saves time and money to buy them and check every end.

This. Using cheap shitty cables gives you no recursible chain of supply.

WHEN you get a random cable failure as GAZ described, being able to turn around and say 'it's a Belden/Sommer/Kelsey/etc cable with neutrik/switchcraft/etc connectors.' There's not much more anyone could expect you to have done to prevent the failure. Saying 'it's cheap shitty cable but I checked it before we used it!' Just makes you look like a shambles.
