Power Cables

We now offer a range of power cables. Using only the best brands, Neutrik, Titanex, Mennekes, PCE, Masterplug and Kaiser. These are all built to order, so can be made in any length to suit your requirements. We do keep very good stocks of all the components, and turn around time is usually quick with our manufacturing team.

The Titanex H07RN-F is robust yet flexible, it withstands the toughest of conditions, such as hard wearing situations, extreme temperatures and most chemicals. Fitted with IP65 rated connectors, the cables are then ideal for outdoor use.

We can custom label the cables, under clear heat shrink. Or we can offer clear heat shrink (un shrunk) put on the cables – please leave a NOTE at the checkout for this option (no extra charge).

We are also offering a PowerCON overmoulded range (please see some pictures below)

TESTUDO – what!?

Im very excited as i type this blog post – and as usual its a new cable that’s done it, how very, very sad i am!! In the hope im not the only one who enjoys professional quality cable i introduce…..TESTUDO.

TESTUDO is the new name for our professional quality microphone cable.

The word “TESTUDO” is from ancient Roman warfare, it was a type of shield wall formation commonly used during battles, particularly sieges. In the TESTUDO formation, the men would align their shields at the front with another shield on top slightly overlapping – a double shield if you will.

As our microphone cable has a double shield, this felt like a fitting name. The double shield in our cable is provided by a lapped oxygen free pure copper screen and then under that a black CPE layer. The double shield offers superb rejection of un-wanted noise – Radio Frequencies and Electromagnetic Interference etc.

So, whats changed?

  1. The outer jacket has a completely new Anti Kink blend. It is completely smooth, wraps and falls perfectly and doesn’t retain its shape when wrapped / un wrapped. The cable lies completely flat on the floor, without retaining any loops. The new outer jacket material means these cable can be used outdoors (obviously any connectors used outdoors must be IP65 rated)
  2. The conductors and screen have had more oxygen free pure copper strands put in them, ensuring faultless signal transfer and shielding
  3. The color range has been updated, listening to our customers calls for some “neon” colours – the orange, green and yellow have been hit with the glow sticks! The grey and brown have had colour changes also, to be more of a gun metal grey and copper.

The full specification sheet can be found here:

TESTUDO is ideal for recording studios, bands, live tours, events, hire companies, film and TV, the education sector and more.

I am constantly looking to improve the cable we supply, this feels like a big step in the right direction. I would happily put this up against any other microphone cable in the industry, and i am confident it would perform extremely well.

Studio Du Maine Noir

In late April 2020 we were approached by Studio Du Maine Noir for some custom neutrik looms. Situated in South West France, approx a two hour drive away from Bordeaux. This small boutique recording studio is surrounded by woods, very quiet – perfect for creative recording sessions. Packed with unusual gear, it really does have its own unique vibe.

We were asked to make the following: 4 x DB25 to TRS Jack Looms, 2 x 8 Way Female XLR to TRS Jack Looms, 1 x 8 Way Male XLR to TRS Jack Looms, 2 x 14 to 28 Way Insert Looms and 5 x 8 Way TRS Jack Looms – all at 3mts. Using our professional studio quality cable, with braided ends and Nickel Neutrik plugs. With all the connectors and cable stocked, it was just build and ship time.

It was pleasure working with Pam from the studio, supplying looms to exact requirements. With such a unique setting and a vast array of unusual gear to get creative with, we think it is definitely worth a visit to Studio Du Maine Noir.

More information about the studio can be found here: http://www.studio-du-maine-noir.com/index.html

New Professional Cables

Firstly – Merry Christmas to all of our customers! Thank you for your continued support, we really do appreciate it.

In 2019 I wanted to start making changes to the bulk cables we manufacture. I wanted them to be truly “professional”. I wanted them to stand up against the market leaders and for people to be confident in using them again and again. This started with changing over our 4 way multicore cable: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-studio-quality-cable-4-way-channel-multicore-cable-per-metre/. Our 8 way multicore cable: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-studio-quality-cable-8-way-channel-multicore-cable-per-metre/ and our 12 way multicore cable: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-studio-quality-12-way-channel-pre-jacketed-audio-multicore-cable-per-metre/

I then moved on to changing over our balanced patch cable: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-silver-plated-balanced-patch-cable-ptmc-per-metre/. Next was our DMX cable: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-dmx512-lighting-cable-cldmx-per-metre/.

Next on my “hit list” was 2 core speaker cable – we changed from 1.25mm to 1.5mm: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-low-resistance-ofc-speaker-cable-2-x-1-5mm²/ and the 2.5mm cable: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-low-resistance-ofc-speaker-cable-2-x-2-5mm²/. I made these cables very low in Resistance – just 12 Ohm/KM for the 1.5mm and 7 Ohm/KM for the 2.5mm. The jacket on both is perfectly smooth and wraps great.

Other exciting cable news (if thats your thing) – we have Custom Lynx CAT6A S/FTP in stock – again professional quality. New listings will be coming very shortly using this cable

I know a lot of people call cables “professional” and this is sometimes very questionable. Our new cables truly are professional – we have put full spec sheets on our new cables, so you can see all the finer details. And if you would like to see the cables for yourself – please get in touch for a sample pack.

All the best for 2020!!

Custom Lynx Professional Silver Plated Balanced Patch Cable – PTMC/NEW

A lot going on here at Custom Lynx, loads of cabling improvements in the pipeline. We have already had our new DMX cable come in: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-dmx512-lighting-cable-cldmx-per-metre/

Our second BIG improver is our Balanced Patch Cable. This has had a complete redesign. Both conductors are now fully Silver Plated, the screen is now braided and the jacket is made from a new material – which doesn’t kink and wraps brilliantly. This comes in 4 colours and black:

Available by the metre, or for a discount on 100m drums.

With an O.D of 4.5mm the cable is the perfect fit for right angled Neutrik 3.5mm stereo jacks (NTP3RC/-B) and also the Neutrik TT Bantam Plugs. Would also be great for Headphone Extension/Adaptor and Patch Cables.

Im sure you will be as impressed and we are with the new cable – it can be purchased here: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-silver-plated-balanced-patch-cable-ptmc-per-metre/ or by the 100m drum: https://custom-lynx.co.uk/product/custom-lynx-professional-silver-plated-balanced-patch-cable-ptmc-100m-drum/
