1/4″ Modular Synthesizer Patch Cord Review

DJ Thomas White offers his review of 1/4″ modular synthesizer patch cords from speakerrepair.com:

Got these great cables with copper conductor wire from www.speakerrepair.com in Orange County.

They come bundled 6 in a bag for $30. Each cable is a different color (red, green, yellow, purple, orange, blue) and has a TS (Tip-Sleeve) connector on it. The connector are NOT switchcraft but are high quality and have a nice solid feel to them for clone connectors.

Cables are available direct from the website or from eBay as they have a GLS Audio store.

These cables also come in balanced (TRS = Tip-Ring-Sleeve) for the same price, or you can get them for cheaper bundles in 2 or 3 foot lengths. No strain relief though on the normal cables. Speakerepair.com also has great dela on XLR, RCA and other cables (including nice quality insert cables so you son’t have to mess with Hosa).

  1. thomas, thanks for the tip, just getting my first modular and ordered a big box of these from speaker repair. couple questions if you don't mind, are TS cables fine for a modular? Or do they need to be TRS? Also, i don't like the way 1/4" cables come unscrewed, can I glue them? If so, do you know a glue that won't screw up the cable or melt etc? thanks d
