3.5mm connectors in uk

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anyone know where to get some of the fancer 3.5mm plugs here in the UK preferably ones with wider openings. I would order from the states but i'v been stung quite hard on my last few orders with extra customs charges (£20 on my mini^3 kit £16 on some cable £16 on a alps pot i didnt bother to pick that one up they can keep the pot i aint paying 5 times the cost of the component to pick it up)

Thanks

Dan

How about ebay? their service is excellent, next day delivery with a voucher off next order, no minimum order in case you only need 1/2 things.

eBay.co.uk Shop: Search results for AudioSpares.

thanks for the quick reply.

i'v got a few of them from maplin and TM3 what I'm after is something with a that can take around a 9mm cable and heavy guage braided wires.

Not that i realy need to make any more as I'v got interconects coming out of my ears (making kits and cables helps me destress from work ^^)

Then the only other good source I know of is farnell, Massive selection and the site takes some searching through. They used to have a minimum order of £20 though, not sure if that still applies.

Nicest connectors I've used are these from Null.

You can have small, medium or massive cable inputs real quality...

Edit: I'm talking of the Via Blue - I tried the others also but they were buggers to solder.

Hmmm, quite a bit cheaper. They are very nice plugs, have you used them before?

I like Switchcrafts that I normally but from e-bay, they are pretty much indestructable but nowhere near as nice as the Via Blues. Null ship out real quick also.
