    Boom flat flex ribbon cable

    Does anyone know where I can purchase a flat flex ribbon cable that connects the Boom control panel to the main body? Or is is it "Boom for parts" time?
    Thanks,
    Kid Audio

    On the photo it can be seen that the flex cable consists of 10 wires. I suppose you can measure the wire pitch yourself. You may find a replacement in the following table at Farnell:

    You can filter on number of wires (in this case 10Core), wire pitch, length, contact orientation, etc.

    CJS: Thanks for the link. I was able to find the flex cable I needed. (I think.) If I ever make it to The Netherlands I'll buy you a pint. Thanks again. Much appreciated.
