Thread Starter 

Hello, on my amp I have two 1/4" HP jacks and there is one I never use.  Are there any nice looking plugs availiable that dont stick out really far that will keep all of the dust out? Thanks

Not the prettiest thing, but simple and should be effective.

Something nicer would likely have to be fabricated for the purpose.

 

Like a dummy plug machined out of black Delrin with say, a 1/2" "handle" on it with a couple of notches to receive some black rubber O-rings to allow for a good grip when removing it.

 

Could do a 3.5mm version too. Call 'em Big Dummy and Little Dummy. biggrin.gif

 

If others are interested in such a thing, I could draw something up and get a quote from my machinist for a group buy.

Exactly!

 

Though I wouldn't make them Conehads. biggrin.gif

 

I'll set some time aside this weekend to do up the drawing and hopefully get a quote early next week.

Yes, that's just what I was going to do. Use the same profile as an actual 1/4" TRS so it would stay "locked" into the jack, but make it out of a non-conductive material so it won't short out the amp's outputs.

I'm hoping they won't be any more than $5. He does the phenolic barrels I use on my interconnects and speaker cables and they're a hair under $5 each and I can't imagine these costing any more than that.
