Very cool, very good idea, very expensive, and that's why I won't get one. lol, though I would love to try one.

thats the reason it is called snap jack, you can jack it in a snap and pay less for just buying the replacement tips since you wont get the tips if you do a runby jacking

Ah, but what if the wire gets messed up ? Besides, 2 tips cost 24 dollars, and thats without shipping !

Cool idea, maybe more for the gigging musician though.

I would hate to gig with one. I can't imagine the number of ways it would cause problems.

Re: Snap Jack, FINALLY

older thread but im planning on buying them soon

Im tired of moving/tripping over a cable, getting cables kinked when I get up/shift. I've knocked my cheapo Line 6 spider III amp over many a time because of it.

Plus a better shielded cable is a must

Re: Snap Jack, FINALLY

live i run wireless. and i run my cables out of the way and take the tension off of the jacks. for practice, i am pretty much right in front of my rig(we have a 5 piece band). for my situation, i'll pass.

Re: Snap Jack, FINALLY

I have been meaning to write a review about these cables. I use it for gigs connected from my guitar to my pedalboard just so i can switch guitars mid-set. Yeah, you'd think they'd disconnect, but if you wrap your cable around your strap as you usually would, they don't pop out -- just get the angled tips (except for your jems of course).

Although, the end connected to my EB volume pedal does tend to get obnoxious on the rarest of occasions if I run too far. They are quite nifty though. I can't see myself replacing all of my cables with them, but I love just having tips in all my guitars for easy switching.

Re: Snap Jack, FINALLY

I believe I have seen Dweezil Zappa using the Snap Jacks

edit: I just checked their artist page and I was correct
