Short (1ft) MALE Right-Angle to Female XLR Cables?

It would seem that you can get short XLR cables with a right-angled FEMALE connector pretty much anywhere... but what I need is a short (1ft) XLR cable with a right-angled MALE connector going to a straight female connector and have not found any.

Anyone have a source for this?

At a pinch, I'll take a short XLR cable with right-angled connectors at both ends, if that's easier to find!

My google-fu is strong.

Cables from zZounds.com

You can buy the connectors, and make them up yourself.

Or ready made.

Hmmm... if it's on that page, I'm not finding it. No 1ft short cables listed and none with right angled male connectors. Yes, I can find the angled connectors by themselves, but I'm looking for a source of pre-made short patch cables.

The shortest one listed there is 3 ft. :-(

You might be better off finding one custom made for you. The demand for that type of cable and its length is likely to be very low. If you can find one.. kudos ;)

As a sound guy, I know that if I needed that cable at that length, I would most likely just build the thing myself.

also be aware that you can't turn the connectors. at best you can take them apart and turn them maybe 90deg if the soldering end left some play in it. if its a very tight solder job, you'll have to resolder the connector. you may be much better off making it yourself or getting a local shop to do it for you.

Ok, looks like I may have to make one myself. Wikipedia says they're wired pin-1 to pin-1, etc, with the following connections?

Pin 1 Chassis ground (cable shield)
Pin 2 Normal polarity ("Red")
Pin 3 Inverted polarity ("Black")

...noting that the numbering of the pins is different on the male and female connector.

the pins are the same on M and F but mirror image. all depends on which way you look at them - front or back. they are also labeled on both the fronts and solder ends so there isn't much worry about messing it up

Yeah, just make it up for the length you need. Not that hard.
Or keep googling. Here's a set of double right angled 12 inch cables.

Who the heck is it that makes adjustable right angle xlr male & female connectors & or cables. I know I've seen them before but finding them isn't the easiest.

*edit* Neutrik is one I think

I saw that one from B&H... but they don't stock it, and it's a bit long for my needs. They also have a 1.5 coiled cable, but it's 90-degrees at the female end. I think I'll probably end up making one myself, as long as I can find some good quality cable. The 6-pack on Amazon looked interesting, but also the connectors looked very poor quality.

Neutrik do a whole range of XLRs. I've used these:

Neutrik - Audio - RX Series - NC3MRX

You select the angle needed as you make up the cable. Last bought these at Maplin because I was in a hurry, but they can be sourced cheaper.

A few months back i needed exact the same cable. 30cm(1ft) with right angled male/female connectors. Couldn't find it in stores, but found someone who custom made all sort of cables. I'm very happy with it. Just long enough and the connectors don't stick out to the side.

Ok Hubert... don't keep me guessing! Where did you order the cable from? :-)

Also, which shock mount is that. I think I'll need something similar.
