Retensioning Tube Type Jack


Recommended Posts

i've run into this many times..someone with a tube type or solid output jack on their guitar is cutting out when the cord moves. in most cases i just replace it but today i had one come in that was hard wired into a small box pre-amp and i was out of replacements anyway. the contacts had lost tension so i took one of my wire picks, one with a 45 degree angle on the end and ground it down so that it was short enough to fit into the barrell and got the side contacts out enough to make a big difference but not perfect.

so my question is do any of you have any secrets about this repair that you'd care to share with me? inquiring minds want to know. :D
