I was getting various plugs and cables for my new pedalboard, and Hicon plugs are now mine number one for plugs. Before I was always using Neutrik plugs, and I saw on Thomann these Hicon plugs that are usually sold with Sommer cables, ordered several of each kind and they are all easy to solder and all were with 100% signal passing through. Highly recommendable
I've got a Pedal Train 2 and too many pedals, so the Sho Bud and the Jen Wah sit off the main board... I prefer the Hicon jacks, to George Ls jacks (which I mostly use on the pedal board) because Hicons aren't prone to being over-tightened and the tip shorting to earth.
They're great distintive jacks with a smaller profile than the Neutriks I use on my guitars. Just as sturdy by the looks of it and solid points to solder too inside the jack - I will say that I much prefer the tags in the angle jacks as they've got holds to anchor the wires in, these (like Neutriks) are soldered to a half-tube emerging from the plug - totally adequate and very unlikely to break.
The look great and go really well with Sommer Spirit cable.
