Another TA5 low profile! Not right angle this time

Yet another solution for your low profile TA5 needs.  I turned this cap for a Switchraft connector last night and people seem to get a kick out of it so here it is!

Looks cool, does the original cable crimp fit still or are you doing something different inside?

That does look cool. My biggest gripe with the Switchcraft connector is the tendency for the plastic boot to crack over time. The lack of spark edges or corners on your design is also a plus.

I am using something else for strain relief, the original crimp would not fit. It works just like an xlr, tightens around the cable as the cap is being screwed on to the conn.  

I think CMSD means sharp edges.  No sharp edges, and the cap is much stronger.

I'd like to see your cable crimper piece.

I bet you would!  Send me one of your mics and I'll wire it.  First one is free ;-)
