Pure Tone Multi contact Mono 1/4" Output jack, Nickel
Manufacturers part number PTT1
Let's face it, the 1/4" jack socket you're using in your guitar and your pedals was designed in the 19th Century for patching phone calls. The new Pure Tone jack makes those old crackly 1/4" jacks obsolete!
The Pure Tone jack contains dual tension grounds and dual positive tips for optimal signal and lowest possible noise. Greater surface area at all contact points creates a more stable connection, locking the cable securely in place and carrying more signal; as a result, high and low frequencies are greatly improved creating a much more balanced sound while eliminating frequency spikes. Most importantly, the Pure Tone Jack eliminates the infamous “crackle” noise caused by pressure grounds.
The Pure Tone jack tensioned design locks the cable securely in place and the increased metal mass carries more signal.
Available in Mono and Stereo, in Nickel and in Gold finish.

About the Pure Tone jack:
The Pure Tone multi-contact jack was invented by Dave Linsk, lead guitarist of the International recording group Overkill. The jack was created as a result of constant failures of the current production jack models that have been available on the market until now. As it turns out, the 100 year old audio jack design really needed some changes to make it road worthy!
The standard jack utilizes a pressure ground and a single hot positive connection; as actual grounds are not connected to the sleeve, the pressure of the tip dictates how good the ground is, resulting in inferior sound quality (I.e., that “static sound”). Not only is the signal strength compromised and weaker, the actual sound is inferior because you never have a solid ground and the poor connection at the tip contact is so minimal.
With the new Pure Tone Jack, the audio jack as you know it will never be the same again. The Pure Tone audio jack has 2 actual concave ground contacts that hug the sleeve on both sides and 2 concave hot leads wrapping both sides of the positive tip. Not only is the signal much cleaner, stronger, and clearer, but all aspects of the EQ spectrum are also greatly improved while eliminating those nasty spikes. In addition, the Pure Tone jack has greatly increased the voltage handling capacity while leaving a smaller footprint for those tight spaces. The new standard jack has been born!
