We make this lead
We have over 25 years experience in the industry. We make the lead with great care and attention in our workshop.
This lead is also known as 'TRS lead' or 'Stereo 1/4" Jack lead' or '3 pole 1/4" Jack lead' all the terms are the same.
Connections are made between the connectors on:
Tip Jack (Hot) - Tip Jack (Hot)
Ring Jack (Cold) - Ring Jack (Cold)
Sleeve Jack (Screen) - Sleeve Jack (Screen)
Cable Length Important - This is visible cable from the rear of the connector. This is critical when you are measuring up leads for your equipment and is even more important when the lead is short.
For mic/line level use only - this is NOT for connections between an amplifier output to passive speaker
This lead is a balanced configuration made only for balanced audio equipment. Both the input and the output equipment must be balanced.
If you have a piece of audio equipment that is is unbalanced then you need an unbalanced lead. Unbalanced leads are guitar / patch leads which we also sell. If you have one piece of audio equipment that is balanced and one unbalanced regardless if it is input or output then you will use a unbalanced lead.
Please ensure that both your input and output is balanced before buying this lead. Please consult your user manual for both of your input and output audio equipment if you are unsure.
Typical applications for this lead:
Mixer to amplifier inputs
Patching mixers to outboard equipment
Mixer to USB sound device
Link lead between power amplifiers
Patching in racks between FX units, EQ media output devices.
Can be used for any mic/line level use
Mixer output to active speaker input (note an active speaker is a speaker with an amplifier built into it)
Please note that all inputs and output must be balanced
