Tips on repairing and testing audio cables
For broken cables in general have two gategories:
When bad pile get too big then you can take a look at it. A good test and repair method is to cut off both ends about 10-20 inches, then examine the remaining cable for cuts, scrapes, crushing, melting, whatever.
For things like mike cables, patch cords, and the like, I apply a simple test, how long to fix it and will the fixing cost more than buying a brand new cable. For short stuff the answer is usually toss it in the junk pile.
