These are two 1/4" (6.35mm) Jack to Phono (RCA) connector patch cables. There is 18cm of cable between the connectors (7"). The jack is a Sommer HiCon, the phonos are non branded but of very high quality designed for 6mm cables. The cable is Sommer Tricone2, a flexible high quality cable, recomended for patch cables.
This is a cable made from NOS. New old stock that has been lying around unused. It uses genuine Neutrik Swiss Made SPEAKONs with a twist lock. Sadly they are discontinued as they are great for my old fingers.
The cable is 2.5mm squared Trusound speaker cable, made in the USA for UK company FS Cables and is as good as the best German makes. At this length the cable is good for well over 2000 watts continuous and is ideal for connecting a bass cab to a head. I have a few more of these connectors and various lengths of cable.
after reading and commenting on the Recommendations for best cable to use with your bass? thread i had the urge to go through the two boxes that contain all of the random cables that i have collected over the years, mostly these are ones that people have declared as broken or dodgy, they end up in my possession as i make and repair my own cables.
at the bottom of the box i find a planet waves instrument cable, according to my cable tester it is fine, i then check it for noise by plugging it into my interface and turning the gain up then wiggling and bending the cable to detect noise, all is fine. then i double check using my multimeter and there is apparently no continuity between the tips of the jacks, my cable tester gives me a perfect connection and the sleeve connection is fine, i have also pugged a bass in using this lead and it works fine but my multimeter declares it dead.
any idea what might be going on here? i have changed the battery in the multimeter and also used it to test other cables and it seems to be working fine. Is there some kind of weird voodoo built into these cables?
I need to replace the Barrel jack on my Yamaha bb424x as its become a bit loose and I don't trust it. I already have a Nuetrik Jack which I have had for a while now but just got round to doing it now. Having opened up the crome plate and having a closer look, it appears that the original one is different as it seems to have two pins on the back plus a cable clamp I think. Question is can I use the new Nuetrik one in the photo or do I need to buy another one
Ps hope you can see the photos clearly.
