Guitar Cable - Silent Jack
I bought Sommer Spirit Guitar Cable and some Neutrik jacks from Studiospares. I thought I'd give the Neutrik NP2X-AU silent jack a go and put a Neutrik NP2X mono jack at the other end.
Wow! The silent jack is a tremendous invention - I can't recommend this highly enough. The cable is completely silent when unplugged from the guitar - no interference picked up at all. Most obvious when using a tube amp. I had to check that the amp was still on! It also solders very easily.
The Sommer Spirit Guitar Cable is also great at twice the price. It has no significant handling noise. All in all, a great combination!

However, I've had a few total failures where the switch is not operated when the sleeve has been pushed up. In fact these are the only Neutrik failures I've had since I first used their connectors more than 25 years ago.
Also, I have one awkward guitarist who always manages to activate the jack before it is completely inserted in the guitar.
But in general, they're great.

Was this the five minute argument you wanted Hugh, or the full half-hour?
