I ordered the star quad Canare microphone cable, but I do have a question: why is the resistance of the white wire noticeably less than the resistance of the blue and shield? (The blue and shield are roughly the same resistance.)
I have made 25 ft. XLR cables and pin 2 (white wire) is noticeable less than the other two. The other two are roughly .50 Ohm and the white wire pair is .35 Ohm. This holds true for each cable I made.
Very curious. Would like to quickly pick an expert's brain. Thanks
As far as I can see the strands are all same gauge. I would have thought the shield would have the least resistance.
