If anyone can recommend, I'm grateful: I was getting ribbon cables from Mattson Modular that are Euro 10-pin on one side and four-pin on the other- was using them to adapt various pcb's to my euro setup. I know I could get into crimpy ribbon cable DIYing but for convenience and time I would happily buy these if I knew where. Mattson appear to be on hold and did not respond to email.
If anyone can point me towards a source for these, I'm grateful!
thanks

hi,
are you looking for idc or molex type connectors?
with idc all you need is a cheap desk clamp to assemble. you can even do it without one, but I find its not worth the hassle.
here in europe i usually buy those from reichelt something like 1 euro/m of ribbon and connectors are around 10cent each. and musikding sells molex preassembled, if I remember correctly something like .50-1.50 per cable depending on the number of pins.
in the states i reckon pretty much any retailer like mouser etc.. would have everything you need

as for making the cable 10 pin to 4 pin, just use a 4 pin ribbon with a 10pin connector on one end and 4 pin on the other. and just make sure the cables are matched up to the right pins
