Today in my electronics class we were wiring circuit boards, and working with soldering irons. While we were on the topic, I asked my teacher if making my own cables would be hard, and his response was something along the lines of "hell no". I looked inside a cable, and sure enough, a monkey could solder that. I found some Switchcraft phone plugs at DigiKey, but I am at a loss as to what cable to buy. Radio Shack has some "Instrumentation cable" that looks like it's shielded (at least from the cheap picture on their site), but at the price they are selling it for, it almost seems TOO cheap, you know? Then again, maybe I'm just new at this and don't realize that $.14/foot is normal. Does anyone who makes their own cables have a good source for the cable? Or a better one for the plugs? Thanks in advance.
