Fiddly to assemble — but excellent
Mombasaflash, 10.09.2020
I have been accustomed to soldering up cables for a LOT of years, but I found this connector to be a bit of a nightmare. You MUST use a pretty thin cable and the core needs to be super thin and very flexible because the screw that holds it altogether is right smack in the middle of where the cable sits. This necessitates splitting the signal and earth wires either side of the internal screw column.

On top of this, you also have to solder on and route the tiny cable that disappears into the cap circuitry without pinching it on either the internal screw column or the outer casing.

However, once it is successfully installed, it adds a huge range of tones to your guitar — without any modifications. A VERY cool device!

NOTE: It is available with or without the 'Silent Switch' that permits unplugging at the guitar end without the normal loudspeaker explosions.

best of both worlds!

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.

It's an interesting solution for controlling tone and a silent jack together
