That's the theory but they are still working fine and only get
unrolled carefully a few times per year to fixed positions. I've got
800 metres in total and chose to save my pension for more Sennheiser
mics and another eBay SQN mixer. :-)

I use expensive butyl cable for ordinary mic leads, but not for sound
quality which is good whatever, but for ease of handling. In the past
I've used unscreened curly phone cable professionally with no problem.
