I don't really like that kind of jack, that one is just like the others, not resistant enough.
My luthier installed this in my bass and I had it removed due to complete failure (pieces fell out when I pulled the plug) and the amount of noise created by the "slop" in the fit. The plug could be wiggled inside the jack and the buzzing encountered if the cable, bass or myself moved was intolerable. I've never had a conventional input jack self destruct and a sloppy fit is easily remedied with the old conventional input jacks. In my opinion these are definitely not a "better mousetrap".
I use it on a customer's guitar which connectors in the output jack came loose. The output jack had already been changed in the past by another luthier. Since this kind of output jack is the only one that fits in his guitar, I had no choice but ordering this one...
Now everything works fine, but only two weeks have passed since the installation. Let's hope for the customer that, this time, it will last longer!!
Jack seems solid and decently built, would have been nice to have gotten a slip of paper with wiring information. My old-man brain only has so much space for info.
Well built, easy to install.
Far better than the original jack on my new Jackson guitar. Brand new guitar, the original jack only lasted 2 months.
I like the extra space given for the earth prong, was able to use this for most of the ground points. The jack makes a nice tight fit with my guitar cable. No scratchy connection either.
These are a very neat solution, but be warned, if you play a lot expect to replace these particular sockets regularly. There are better quality versions available at a higher price.
great jack, fits snugly and doesnt crackle, come loose, etc. has a tight fit on the cable
these guys work great once you get your mind right about the two pins! I love their minimal impact on the overall look of the instrument.
