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.

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!!
