These should be standard on all guitar leads likeBy: Anonymous on 6 April 2020I can't believe it took me this long to get myself one of these. I used to read the reviews and think "meh". I'm always in the habit of turning my amp down before pulling the lead out and I reckon most modern amp speakers are reasonably well protected anyway. But I was making up some new leads and decided to give one a go. Now I'm converted. These jacks are brilliant.
