What kind of cable...

...looks like an XLR mic cable, but has 5 skinny posts inside instead of 3 fatter ones like a normal mic cable?

I find myself in possession of one, and I don't know what it is!

Sounds like a DIN connector. DIN's can be 5 pin or 7 pin and can carry audio or midi or even phantom power like an XLR connector. However,the cable that you use is important too.

It could also be a 5 pin XLR cable.

These are used for stereo mics and tube mics that need additional power sent to the mic head.

No, I've got some MIDI cables - this looks like a mic cable (M/F XLR connectors on the ends), and in fact I thought it was until I tried to plug it into a mic. A great disappointment... :rolleyes:

70's Alembic style bass w/18 volt external PS? :)
I have to wire up a replacement every so often for someone here :>)
