COVID-19 Update – We are open as usual

Hi All, due to the current COVID-19 virus situation, we would like to reassure all customers that we are closely following government guidelines and Custom Lynx Cabling will remain open.

We are taking orders as usual and still have daily collections from Royal Mail and DPD. However we are a few members of staff down – so orders are taking a day or two longer than usual. Please also note that Royal Mail are experiencing BIG delays – it was described to us like “Christmas mail without the extra staff“. We have seen delays of 7-10 days with Royal Mail. Please be patient during this testing time. If orders are urgent please choose the DPD option at the checkout.

Our team are prioritising health and safety for ourselves and others. We currently have a couple of our staff isolating, so custom items are taking slightly longer – please bare with us, your patience is appreciated. We have also noticed Royal Mail deliveries taking longer than usual. Stay safe everyone….and wash your hands!

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/
