Careful. You'll make the plug dizzy and it'll blow chunks inside your amp. tongue.gif

I would be very interested in getting some of these 1/4" jack covers.  I need them to cover up hard to see open jacks on my Vox amp, and it is too easy to insert the wrong cable.  I play in a Christian band, and this morning I accidentally plugged the DI cable into the speaker out, instead of the line out.  We play at the middle of 3 services on Sunday, and there is very little time to setup. There are 4 1/4" jacks on the underside of  my Vox amp, and obviously it is too easy to plug the output cable into the wrong jack.  I need something to block off the unused jacks to keep this from happening again.  I started  looking for plug covers this afternoon when I got home, and came across the ones you designed on this forum. The covers you designed are just what I'm looking for. Please let me know the pricing, and when they are available.

Thanks !regular_smile%20.gif

They're available now.

 

$3.60 each for the plugs, $75 cents for a padded envelope and $1.50 for postage in the US.

 

Now, while I'm not looking to make any money on this, I'm not looking to lose any money either. And I don't want to risk having my commercial PayPal account suspended for selling merchandise and getting around their fees by having people pay via the "Gift" option.

 

So are there any math whizzes around here? I need to work out a formula to apply to the total so that after PayPal takes out their fees, I end up with the right amount on my end. PayPal charges 2.9% of the total plus a 30 cent transaction fee.

 

EDIT: Ok, think I got it worked out. Take the total (number of plugs x $3.60 + $2.25 for the envelope and postage), then divide by 0.971 and add 0.3.

 

So for five plugs, it would be 5 x $3.60 = $18. $18 + $2.25 = $20.25. $20.25 / 0.971 = $20.85. $20.85 + $0.30 = $21.15.

 

Then PayPal takes out their 2.9%. $20.15 / 1.029 = $20.55. Then the 30 cent fee, $20.55 - $0.30 = $20.25.

 

So just send me a PM or EMail (steve@q-audio.com) and tell me how  many you want, your shipping address, and PayPal account name and I'll send you an invoice with the price adjusted as per the above.

 

END EDIT

You're quite welcome. But thanks should also to Snaps11 for posting looking for such a solution, and to my machinist who came up with the final design.

NOTE TO OTHERS: Snaps received his plugs with 39 cents postage due. I thought three stamps would be fine, but apparently I'll need to start using four stamps to avoid this in the future. So in the formula, just bump up the price for the envelope and postage from $2.25 to $2.50.

I'm actually kinda surprised more people aren't picking these up.  They're an exceedingly cost-effective means of preventing dust and debris from entering the headphone jack.

post #87 of 89

 

Yeah. Ah well.

 

One of those who bought some actually bought them for their guitar amp. Perhaps I'll put 'em up on some guitar forum and see how that goes.

I am interested. Would you post to Singapore?

post #89 of 89

 

Sure.

 

Postage would be $5.00 for regular ol' First Class mail or $14.00 for Priority Mail.
