Excellent value, well-made plug ideal for pedal boards

MickeyLuv, 01.11.2014
This is based on the Switchcraft 228 'Pancake' plug but has the benefit of a solder tab for the ground connection - the Switchcraft requires the shell to be soldered. The insulation material exhibits a good degree of heat resistance and under magnification appears to be epoxy-glass laminate similar to PCB material. Heat resistance is an important point when soldering to maintain the integrity of the riveted construction. Many low-cost connectors ignore this point and this can be a cause of the assembly loosening later on in life.

Dimensionally there isn't much difference between the Hicon and Switchcraft, though the Hicon uses a slightly thinner material for the shell and the barrel isn't as well shaped where it's swaged over inside the shell. For pedalboad use this isn't an important point and neither the terminals nor barrel could be moved even under considerable pressure.

I was initially apprehensive over whether the black cover (powder coated steel) would make ground contact with the mating half when screwed together. Tests on a number of finally-assembled connectors shows that they do connect to ground which is important in reducing noise.

The only issue I had was for some reason the 'hot' terminal on every plug had a coating which made it difficult to solder until cleaned. The ground terminal was fine. This was the case for each one of 30 connectors I bought, though it wouldn't deter me from buying this product again.

Overall they're pretty well made and enable close-spacing of pedals in a tight setup. ?they look good, too.

Some specs you need to know before buying...

07.02.2015
I bought to replace the larger right-angled jacks on my pedal board. These seem OK for the task. The pancake section is 34 mm long (shorter than most right angled jacks), and just 12 mm thick above the base of the jack shaft, which makes then just 2 or 3 mm thinner than the right angled jacks I was using before. It might not seem like much but it does count and does help on a crowded pedal board. However, there are problems...

1) The pancake section is 20 mm wide and therefore protrudes 10 mm from the centre line of the jack plug itself. That means that you cannot use two of these side-by-side unless both sockets you plug into are at least 20 mm apart. Alas, the stereo inputs on my TC Electronics pedals (reverb and delay) are 17 mm apart centre-to-centre so I can't use these jacks at those pedals in stereo.

2) The product description says it will accept 4 mm - 6.7 mm cables but my 5 mm cables did not grip and even an unsoldered 6mm cable pulled out with little difficulty. I used heat shrink to add a little extra thickness but even If these were not being used on a pedal board, I'd be unhappy with anything less than 6 mm cable.

Aside from that these seem otherwise good and are easy to solder (if your solder and wire prep skills are neat). Strip 10 mm of insulation, push back and twist the shield, strip 5mm insulation off the core wire, tin the wires, trim the sheild to 5mm and solder away. If you need heat shrink to add a little extra diameter, use 15 - 20 mm length.
