I wanted to buy a 3-pin / 5-pin adapter and thought about picking my soldering bolt, buying a cable and two plugs but then I found this adapter cable on thomann. I bought one for each direction and all in all I am happy with this product. It is cheaper than soldering it by yourself and it works. Only one little thing for locking the cable jamms sometimes. If you look inside the plugs you'll also see that they are not that high quality as others. For those who want to use this cable everyday and who like to buy a product which lasts some year on tour I would recommend you to buy a more expensive product. But for everyone else this cable is really okay.
