Hi guys,


I was wondering if anyone knew of any transparent heatshrink, that could fit over an XLR Male/Female and then be shrunk to fit around a standard Tourgrade Vandamme (2 core and earth) cable.


It would save me ALOT of time and hassle/soldering, as we have just changed our labelling system.


Thanks in advanced.

You need at least a 3:1 ratio shrink.


We used this from Farnell which will go over the inner part of the XLR, but shrink down onto the cable OK.


You need to take the shell off the connector, but that's far quicker than having to resolder them all. (Plus it does no harm to give every mic cable a visual inspection - we found a few iffy leads out of our batch when we went through the process)
