Amphenol AC3F Female XLR Connector Nickel with Jaws Cable Clamp
Amphenol AC3F Female XLR Connector Nickel with Jaws Cable Clamp is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to replace cable endsThis xlr cable end was easy to replace an old bad one. It uses a tubular solder lug where you simply place the stripped wire into the tube and heat then apply solder which flows into the tube to form a nice connection

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid connector with two short comingsThe connector is very solid. It can be a bit tight to mate to come connectors. It has a proper Pin 1 in that it makes contact first before the rest. Some cheap connectors ignore that requirement. The ridge is a little pronounced for some and will cause it to not fit. It also is missing a lug to make a connection to the shell so you can not bond pin 1 and the shell together. The cable hole is indeed small at a little over 1/8" so thick microphone cables will not work.I want to recommend the product as it is a well built unit. But the lack of the shell connection is a problem that cant really be worked around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great connecter, great price, watch cable diameterGreat all around! The cable clamp is designed for thin wire like snake channels or grey PVC install wire with shrink tube. Microphone cable is much too thick unless you nip chunks off the cable clamp teeth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Larger then normalIt's a little thicker than neutrik. Fits most microphones but doesn't fit on Sterling ST51 for example.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Connector at a great price!I love these connectors! Easy to assemble, easy to solder, very high quality at an affordable price! I've used Switchcraft and Neutrik (as well as knock offs). Amphenol made the original XLR... these connectors are my new FAVORITE XLR!

Amphenol AC3F Female XLR Connector Nickel with Jaws Cable Clamp

Will these connectors work with the Belden Brilliance 8451 cable or will the cable be too thin?

Asked by: DaMoose
These connectors will work fine with that cable.
