You will be surprised with the quality of this plug. I can only confirm the positive reviews of this product.
It's a very basic and straightforward plug made out of cast metal. It comes with a short strip of transparent tube to isolate the soldering points. It DOES have an internal metal chord grip which has to be tightened with a pair of pliers, but it does hold the cable in place nice and tight. The bottom piece leaves a bit room around even the thickest cables, but it's still secured through the internal chord grip.
It's a very sturdy and noise free plug, which I have used in combination with the Sommer Cable The Spirit to solder all of my patch cables and even some instrument cables. They have survived this far and show no signs of coming loose or breaking.
If you want to upgrade from your cheap molded patch cables, these will be more than enough.
Bought these to make some decent sized patch cables from the piles of guitar cable I have lying around from all those stupid moulded plugs that you can't repair.
This wonderful 90 degree angle was just perfect for my needs to allow me to squeeze more pedals onto my board and keep wasted space down to a minimum. Im firmly an amateur at soldering so if I can use these and make my own cables then I expect anyone with half a brain to be able to get something useful out of these.
The only downside is that it doesnt have any strain relief on the cable so there is the possibility of the cable being yanked and broken so its perfect for short static cable runs but maybe not as your main guitar lead that gets stood on all the time.
