PK Communications Co.
XLR Microphone Cords
PK Communications Co. can supply reporters with microphone cords for audio recorders. We've built and supplied them for years to reporters and public relations people covering auto racing in all the major series. We started building these cords, because we were not satisfied with what was available for purchase, and because we had suffered problems with recorders because of internal jacks malfunctioning as a result of the weight of the cable upon the connecting plug. We found that light and strong cords greatly reduced the failure rate of small (3.5mm) microphone jacks. If you have ever heard audio actuality from a NASCAR driver, chances are it's been processed through one of our mike cords.
Our most popular product is a
nominal 30 inch XLR Female to 3.5 mm male microphone adapter.
We build this model in a nominal 60 inch length as well. XLR-Mini 60--$25
The Mini series (as stocked) is built with light and strong cords and Neutrik NC3FX XLR Connectors. They can also be built with Belden 1804a Starquad microphone cable. XLR-Mini 30 1804--$25
XLR-Mini 60 1804--$30
Our Mini series can also be built with Neutrik's NC3FM-C ConvertCon male and female XLR connector.
XLR-Mini 30 ConvertCon--$40
XLR-Mini 60 ConvertCon--$45
We also build XLR-Mini 1804 cables with Neutrik's RF blocking connectors (NC3M/FXX-EMC) which neutralize the noise from cell phones, and can reduce hum, etc.
XLR-Mini 30 1804 RF Block--$35
XLR-Mini 60 1804 RF Block--$40

We must collect New York Sales Tax on deliveries made to addresses (to include Post Office Boxes) in the State of New York.
