Pancake plug recommendations please

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

These seem to come in budget batches of multiple units for very little money or plugs like this which are over £3 each.

Anyone have any opinions on this fascinating subject?

Recursive link (apparently)!

Pssst - you have a recursive link.

I'd beware of cheap plugs - I've bought some and they've been pretty poor quality.

One batch I bought was actually too big to go into half my pedals !

I didn't know what a recursive link was, so thanks for that!

I like the square plugs tho - do let us know if you go for them and how they work out.

Yep, those are the ones i was wondering about - do you use them?

 

Yep. Great plug. I built a huge pedalboard for a band I work with using these. I probably wouldn't use anything else now.

I find pancake plugs real sods to solder!

I went to Dawsons once looking for cables with pancake plugs and they said they'd never heard of them.

These days, for in-pedalboard, I use EBS Flats.

I have not used those, I use the Sommer HiCon. Although a different shape, they look to be similar quality. The hicons are black though.

I have just noticed that these are for cable if a maximum diameter of 4.6mm maximum outside diameter. That rules out the  majority of guitar cables.

They are for patch leads not guitar lead!
