Pseudo Balanced Neutrik Female XLR to 3.5mm Mini Jack Lead. Van Damme Mic Cable
This is a Pro quality lead designed to connect a microphone or balanced device to a stereo input. The mono signal from the XLR will be split/duplicated onto both the Left and Right channel of the mini jack.
These leads are cleverly wired to improve the signal quality when connecting from balanced to unbalanced equipment. Our method is tried and tested by professionals around the world, you will find these cables in use in high end DSLR camera rigs and PA setups.
To wire these we use a 4 core and screen cable, and wire the unused pin inside the XLR to the ground inside the jack. The screen is only connected to the jack. This method reduces interference, eliminates ground loops and improves the signal quality. Its very simple, and very effective! Should you require any other wiring to suit your requirements, please ask.
We have used the world renowned Van Damme Starquad cable with industry standard Neutrik and Switchcraft connectors. These cables look and sound great. All terminations are made with a 4% silver solder.
