just made up a batch the other day... bought a load of neutrik and rean conectors and van damme cable off ebay... works out a hell of a lot cheaper than buying shitty no-name cables from your local music shop
oh i got some wbt "audio grade" silver solder too, not sure how much difference it makes compared to standard 60/40 solder but its pretty cheap by the metre so bought it anyway
i did burn myself a few times but its all good fun!! im such a nerd!!!!
