Data cable

I purchased a 37-conductor cable from Jameco Electronics last year which I will be using to connect some Grass amplifiers. I cut the heads, and inside there are a bunch of colored wires. I need to hook up 33/37, which means I might as well do them all.

Light BlueLight Blue/BlackLight Blue/White
PurplePurple/BlackPurple/White
BrownBrown/BlackBrown/White
PinkPink/BlackPink/White
GrayGray/BlackGray/White
WhiteWhite/Black
BlackBlack/White

Now the tricky thing is that I'd like to split it into two chunks of 16 so that it is easy to flip connection... ok, I got it. I will have a "dark" side, and a "light" side.

That should take care of it.

Update
I decided to hook up the last few wires too... so after the 32, I'm going Gray, Dark Green, Light Green, Orange, Purple(Gnd).

Custom cables

I've been working to hook up two old Grass machines. I found the plugs, and was looking for the cable when Dave suggested this company called Markertech. Joel at Marketek suggested sending the specs to penny_at_towerpower.com, their custom cable division.
