Cable Tester

Postby josh porter » Sun Jun 22, 2008 8:36 pm

Yah... I am now the proud owner of a CT100 cable tester... ordered from my favourite place to get audio equipment.....I dont know if it is a novelty thing but now every cable that customers bring back at my store when they say that it doesnt work i have been bringing out my tester and testing it right in front of them. they are a wonderful thing to have... now no more wondering how good my solder job was, just pop it in and see.

Much trouble is saved with a cable tester on hand to remove doubt.

Too many times, especially live, when you had to jump through fire to make a musician believe their cable was the problem... Now a tester can do the job in an instant.

Also as a line check tool, the CT100 is the shiznit with it's tone generator and phantom indicator. No more checking direct lines with a 57.

I always have mine when working on stage. Truly invaluable.

I paid about 55 for mine but it was well worth it. I have used it many times and it has saved me a good number of hours worth of work.
