Amphenol's TM2PJ 1/4" plug is one of the very best instrument plugs in the world. The tip is a single, solid milled piece nearly impossible to break. The heavily nickel plated tip and sleeve shun corrosion yet the contacts accept solder with ease. The ingenious internal cable clamp holds the cable in such a way that no amount of pulling on the cord will ever break the internal connections. When your signal is dependent on a working cable, this connector is one that will hold up and deliver.
