“Looking to save some money? Create your own cables! By spending a few dollars on jacks, shielded cables, solder and soldering iron, you can save a ton of money in cables.

It’s easy. Here are some step by step photos.

At the bottom of this article, is a wiring guide for XLR to XLR, XLR to TRS, XLR to TS, and whatever combination you can think of.

On this guide, I’m wiring up an XLR cable. First, we disassemble the cable by unscrewing the lock screw. Pull out the rubber plug (black thingy) and then you’ll be able to push out the 3-pin connection assembly.”Link.

The site has a lot of other great projects to check out too – Thanks Ruel.
