Trace Elliot 1/4" Jack Sockets

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am trying to source some replacement 1/4" jack socket nuts?  Please see attached photo - the nut (not sure if there is a better description!) on quite a few of the sockets have broken off.  There is a small part of the threaded part of this in the socket and these screw out easily.  I don't really want to replace the whole socket if I can get away with it, but was wondering if anyone knows for definite where I can get these from?

Thanks in advance

Try Ashdown, they use the same components and may well send you a couple free :)

Are they not generic size jack sockets, as per bass jacks ?

Yeah these are standard quarter inch jack sockets. Any suitably sized retaining nut will fit, they have a standard diameter and thread for those jacks.
