Looking for some 1/4" TRS male jacks, LMK if you have a good source of them, I need to make myself some volta adaptors...

Doesn't their being male make them plugs, not jacks?

If you ask a Brit, he might call it a jack plug.

never dealt with this place but these Amphenol plugs are great for that price:

this are ok switchcraft clones from a great seller: http://www.speakerrepair.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Catego ry_Code=pandj-quarterinch

pretty nice Neutrik clones from a great seller Audiopile:

the G&H Bigfoot are my favorite with a copper pin/tip but about $4.00 ea, serious overkill for CV! http://www.ghplugs.com/bf.html

neutrik and switchcraft for me.
anything else that I encountered just craps out after a while
for patch I use cheap molded cables from Thomann.de
new neutrik also from Thomann.de

I might order some of those Bigfoot - they look really nice!!!!

The Bigfoot are great, easy to solder and have a lot of weight to them!
I haven't found a many sellers for them, I know there was at least one seller on ebay that carries them.
ProCo sells them(or used to) branded as "ShowSavers" ... I just got my DB25>TRS they advertise using these but they have the Amphenol now, pretty deceptive.

have you compared to the G&H Bigfoot? for TRS the G&H are a lot easier to solder and felt a lot more hefty. I bought some of each, sadly at guitar center... it was easter sunday, no other option. Anyway, the copper pin in the G&H may be a gimmick? but it makes sense to me, and feels very well made, not as pretty as the Neutrik, but a lot sturdier.

+1 for Neutric and/or Switchcraft. I get them from Apex.
