Re: Shielded Wire
« on: July 25, 2017, 11:47:35 AM »
Hi,

This has been posted, but has not been addressed specifically. I'm beginning to build the "Chunk Chunk" PCB. In the build docs Brian recommends using shielded wire on either the input and/or the output jacks. I use daughter boards from either (Ben) Rullywow, Fuzz Dog, or (Paul) DIY Guitar Pedals. I've found shielded wire at SB (RG-174), but I'm wondering if it will fit daughter board pads? I usually use SB 24 pre-bonded.

Thank you

Short answer = YES

RG-174 is equivalent to probably 24 or 26 gauge with respects to the center conductor. I use it all the time and never had an issue.

P.S. For the Chunk Chunk.... use it on BOTH the Input and Output. You won't regret it  ;)

Hey... GREAT! I've got an order to place with SB tonight so I guess I'll get two feet ... just to be safe. Thank you for the clarification.
