Hi All

Where do you all buy banana patch cables that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?

Does anybody make their own? and if so where do you buy plugs, sockets and cable ?

Thanks

Mikael

I make my own cables. That way you can make them what ever length you want

Normally I get my plugs from RS components (rswww.com) But I have bought of E-Bay when I see a good deal for a quantity. I buy my wire from RS I use their UL1015 18AWG wire.

The banana plugs on RS can be a little on the dear side but at least the quality is good and there is no hassle if one is faulty getting a replacement. On Ebay you can never quite be sure of the quality

Thanks guys.

I actually bought stuff from Pollin before, so that is at least possible.

Didn't know about Pollin before. But their prices are very reasonable. Defintely cheap enough not to bother making the lengths they sell.

Danke DUBMatze
