Quote of the Day

“Those of you who have home recording studios and must put at least some money away for food should tear your eyes away from the latest ads for new gear and stop drooling all over your new catalogs for a minute and think about this: just because a piece of gear is out of fashion doesn’t mean it’s lost its raison d’ętre.”- Jeff Baxter

1/4” connector

A connector that transmits signal through its tip and provides ground/shield through its sleeve. A guitar cable uses this type of connector. Comes as unbalanced tip-ring (TS) or balanced tip-ring-sleeve (TRS) configuration. The TRS has multiple uses—it can transmit stereo signal (T = left, R = right, S = shield/ground), balanced signal (+ and– tied to the T and R, with S as the shield), or it can be used as an insert cable (T = send, R = return, S = ground/shield). The 1/4” connector is sometimes called Phone connector or Phone plug (not to be confused with Phono/RCA).
