2-pin solderless pickup terminals?

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to test/experiment several different p bass pickups (passive), but don't want to solder each one everytime. Its a "play at home" bass, so doesn't need robust fixings, which is why I thought if I run ground and live wires from volume pot into a 2-pin terminal, and then run the ground and live wires from the pickup(s) into that it should make it an easy change each time.

Only problem is I don't know which 2-pin terminal I might need, or where to buy them?

Whichever is good. Probably your choice is something very flat, if the space is limited. It does not have to be a coaxial plug and a jack. Or if space is not an issue, something like this:

Couldn't you just use 2 sections of a 3 Amp Connector Strip? Cheep as chips at 40p.

This is what I have used in the past, in fact my les paul is wired up with this and I've managed to squeeze 8 segments in as it's got 2 seymour duncan with 4 wire connections and coil splits for both pickups. I've not had any issues with it coming loose either.

Honestly, chock block got binned many moons ago when i discovered this stuff. 

Absolutely perfect for testing purposes like yours. 

 

Equally good for splitting your live & earth's on the motorbike for aux appliances off of one relay.
