This Amphenol professional series 1/4" right angle plug is the very best. And once you hold this in your hands you will see why. The entire assembly is truly amazing. Its machined, all metal construction insures trouble free operation in any environment. The tip is a single, solid piece nearly impossible to break. Heavily nickel plated, the tip and sleeve contacts accept solder with ease. Not to be out done, the ingenious internal cable clamp holds the cable in such a way that no amount of pulling on the cord will break the internal connections. Your signal is dependent on a working cable and with this connector installed, it is one less link to ever worry about.
