Terry West, all the way. He's done every cable I own, so far.

Dave,

If you wish to get them locally, try Chris Konash.

He does great work for very reasonable prices.

Cheers.

I've had a number of cables made by Siggy Saladin at Clairmont Camera. Contact me via PM or email if you want his contact info.

I always use Terry, but Alec has a good point sticking local -- Chris is amazing.

Jeroen is a nice guy and a good cable maker, but he is busy with his primary occupation as a DIT. I had trouble getting cables made within stated deadlines (one of which was over a week). While I was enroute to an out-of-town job, I found out that Jeroen's cable wasn't going to make it in time. I called Terry at the beginning of my layover; by the time I boarded the plane an hour later, he was already heading to UPS to ship out the cable. I'm sure Jeroen would have done the same for me if he could, but he was stuck on set. Food for thought.

I should have added that I have used Terry West and David Habke a lot too. They are great. I'm just happy to have a local option now as well, but then again, some times it's easier to get a FedEx envelope than it is to run into the city.

I've been prepping a show for a few weeks now in Miami. I call Terry when I'm driving home from the rental house, order my cables and they are there the next morning when I show up. Terry kicks ass.

I can't heap enough praise on Terry West. I called him Saturday and picked up my stuff on Sunday. I feel very fortunate he is as close as he is.

Another vote for Terry, especially for his amazing customer service.

and a nod to Erik Anderson (of G-zoom renown) who wired up some custom intercom cables and adapters for live TV work.

Also, Dean at Trew Audio, who is modding my Bose QC2's with a removable boom mic.
