Quote of the Day

“It’s really hard to record guitar, particularly distorted guitar. It’s one of those evasive things to try to get it on tape well. The first stage is to listen discerningly to what the sound source is really doing, and then figure out the appropriate mic and mic position.”- Eric Johnson

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).
