Pure Tone 1/4'' Jack Sockets
£3.95 - £6.95
Featuring 4 contact points as opposed to the traditional jack which has just the one, the two ground and two signal tabs hold the cable in place, even after extensive use, whilst improving both the audio signal and strength.
Available in nickel, black nickel or gold.
"With the new Pure Tone Jack, the audio jack as you know it will never be the same again. The Pure Tone audio jack has 2 actual concave ground contacts that hug the sleeve on both sides and 2 concave hot leads wrapping both sides of the positive tip.
Not only is the signal much cleaner, stronger, and clearer, but all aspects of the EQ spectrum are also greatly improved while eliminating those nasty spikes. In addition, the Pure Tone jack has greatly increased the voltage handling capacity while leaving a smaller footprint for those tight spaces.
The new standard jack has been born!" - Pure Tone Technologies.
Note - the thread length on the Pure Tone jack is 9.52mm, noticeably longer than a standard jack socket. This is well suited to through body jack connections such as on a Gibson SG or 335 for example (or a Telecaster that uses a cup plate) so if installing into a normal jack plate on a Stratocaster or Les Paul for example, you may wish to use an extra nut to decrease the thread length).
We stock additional 3/8'' hex nuts if required.
In terms of upgrading the electronics in a guitar or bass, the jack is the best place to start! The Pure Tone jack is a low cost, long life investment.
