I am shopping localy for a XLR cable. Most of them aren't labeled very well or say they are for Microphones.

Is there a difference between a XLR Microphone cable and a Outlaw PCB XLR cable?

Besides brand name and brand quality that is.

I want to know if I can use a cable labeled Microphone XLR to go bewteen my Outlaw preamp and my M80.

Thanks,
Brian

Nope, same cable... still just ground, in-phase, and 180 out of phase audio (assuming it's a balanced XLR).

Make sure to get a 3 pin one... they also sell similar looking 4-pin ones (for Clear-Comms) and 5-pin for DMX lighting controls.

As long as it is 3 pin, it's fine. Don't buy monster.

You can make them, too. It's much less of a pain in the ass, IMO, to make XLR cables than RCA cables because of the seperate sections on the connectors. Much cheaper than buying any brand and you get a cable that you can repair yourself. A lot of cables you buy have these weird connectors that are nearly impossible to resolder in the case that something bad happens.
