Neutrik NP2 RX-Ultimate, angled 6,35 mm 2-Pol sound characteristic jack plug, silent plug and timbre in one, standard sound of the cable plus three different sound characteristics adjustable by knob on the plug, slim angled plug with industry proven and reliable chuck type strain relief
I have been using Neutrik's SilentPlugs since they exist, mostly the angled version. Can't do without, simply put, even if I only play at home.
Then came TimbrePlugs, which at first I failed to put in the right perspective: silly me, i used some time to understand that not all instrument are created equal.
But TimbrePlugs can produce a different response not only depending on which instrument they're being used (nominal electrical values of pickups, pots, condensers, wiring), but those of the cable, too, and the receiving device (pre, amp, mixer, soundcard, whatever).
And, here we come, on which side of the connection they're placed, instrument or receiving device. Which is where the exact combination of plug-switch and capacity selector is unbeatable.
It goes without saying, if you haven't found a use to the TimbrePlug, having it here with a SilentPlug switched connector won't help you much.
But if you do, and there's plenty of reasons to use a TimbrePlug when switching instruments, cables and receiving devices, then the combination is actually an hands-off winner.
There's no way to mimic its behaviour, unfortunately, with a tone control pot, contrary to what some buyer here claims: different tone, different response, different colour... taking a different choice of words won't change it.
For those searching the ultimate tone response, this is tool that must be on a number of different cables.
