Replacement Astatic Mic Lead?

Post by PeterA » 12 May 2019, 13:23

Anyone recommend the best place to get a replacement 6 core mic lead for an Astatic MOD 575-M6 Teardrop.

Found a couple non genuine (obviously) from the US... but none this side of the pond that look good enough?

4 wires is enough. No need for 6.
You can't have too many antennas...

Yep, Sent them a message already asking about coiled length etc.

Another I've messaged the seller about is claiming 3m length (uncoiled obviously) for £6.35...

Put this thread up to see if anyone recommended others I've not seen or come across.

Appreciate your replies though... Thanks! :thumbup:
