My TS input/output jacks have been with me since I got Luci (Epi SG) and because of that, they have gotten worn out and tarnished. Instead of me buying a new one, I will just salvage the wire and replace the TS input/output jacks; afterall, the wires are still in great shape, it's just the jacks that have seen better days.
Now I just need to borrow a soldering iron or buy my own (which looks as though I will) and solder in the "tip" and "sheath" wires to make it fully functional as it was back in the better days.
Hopefully I still know how to solder properly... Haven't done so since 2007 LOL
Here are some pics of my new jacks. Not a fan of gold jacks so I went and got me chrome jacks even though they will tarnish alot faster than the gold variants.
And when I do finish fixing my jacks, there is still the problem of my multieffects pedal not accepting TRS jacks; I plan to either use a TRS to RCA splitter or a TRS to TS splitter to have surround sound. Either I return it to the shop and have it fixed (it will take 2 weeks T.T) or I will have to figure it myself (and have the pain of it all), either way, it seems I won't be able to use my effects properly for a while.
