Tayda Right Angle Plugs
« on: June 22, 2012, 07:04:03 PM »
Has anyone used them? Building a new pedalboard from the ground up, so I see a lot of soldering patch cables in my future....

I don't know about those ones Ian, but I use the G&H (I think) ones from Orange County Speaker and they're the bomb. I think they're about 80 cents a piece if you get them in bulk, and they're coming from the States so...

Hey, I bought several of these to do the same with. Gotta say, I'd call them fair at best. The plug along with the solder connection inside will rotate. I've had problems with them as a result. I buy lots of stuff from Tayda and this is the only item I'm not happy with.

I have had a lot of headaches from that design.  I swore off them in the 80s.  TDPRI has good buzz about gfs right angles.  But quite precious, but half of George L's

Thanks for the fast responses! I was looking at this and Orange County Speaker. Jacob, can you give a link? I'm not seeing anything at that price point.

I grabbe a few of them from Tayda.  I think you can likely do better elsewhere.  They don't seem very robust.

This is what I use.  I think they are the same as what Jacob was suggesting.  Outta stock  >:(

Call them, you can get a better price point if you ask for it. When you buy through eBay, you always pay more because of the fees involved.

You'll also know when they're back in stock.

I ordered those angled plugs from Tayda and the package should arrive soon.. I will post some info/pics when I get them. Probably they are pretty flimsy, but let's wait and see! :)

+1  I've bought these and had bad luck with them.  Not very robust.  Maybe I heated mine up too much, but the internal plastic insulation melted and deformed when I soldered the wires, so the plug was no longer straight.

Everything else I've bought from Tayda I've been happy with.

Got the package today.. Plugs are ok quality and I think that they are going to work nicely on my pedalboard. I also ordered some resistors, caps, enclosures and some switches. Momentary dpdt-switches feel a bit flimsy, but everything else is pretty good quality.

Yeah, I've had a couple of orders of these from Tayda, not because they were my first choice, but because I had cable on hand but no right angles and I had orders going in to Tayda anyway.  Same consensus as the rest, they're "ok", but I wouldn't build a gigging pedalboard around them.  Waiting for the 6" GFS cables to come back in stock.
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Those look pretty not bad at all.  If my economic situation wasn't in the crapper I would go in for about half.  Maybe someone could split it 2 or 3 ways.  Those look decent.
