Cliff DC external Jacks... Crap / not crap?

Addy Bart
Been buying my dc jacks from Tayda for a while now but lately I'm experiencing connectivity problems on every build. The connection is only good with the OneSpot adapter at a certain position.

Is this a common problem? A reason to avoid this type of DC jack?

I wondered if it was my OneSpot so I bought new extensions from Small Bear and Das Musikding and I have the same issues. I don't think it's my soldering but I'm fast running out of things to blame!

Yeah the DC jacks from Tayda are the bottom of the barrel (pun intended)

Cliff and Kobiconn are good brands

I really like these ones

Although they obviously won't be suitable for anyone wanting to also use a battery.  I never do so the reduced dimensions and hole size required, plus a solid design makes them perfect for me.

Thanks chaps. I'll order some Cliff ones from Das Musikding then.

I was under the impression that the jacks from Tayda were actually the Cliff brand, but they're their own. Pity that I have so many of them!

You live and learn.

Both of the Lumberg brand DC jacks that Paul sells are super-sturdy IME:

Cool, thanks for the heads up! I'll get some next time I order from Paul.
