Many of these plastic jack boxes are made of plastic that is really too weak, so if you tighten the nut just a bit too much you destroy the threads. That's another problem besides the weak springs... If the springs on the open metal one become too weak you can bend them a bit and improve the situation.Debra, for the insulated jacks, Switchcraft also has a very robust version
which were used on the original Chordovox... they come in a number of 2, 3, and
4 point variations plus the switching function on a separate lead
it is the style of those flat ones and the tiny weak springs they use that i dislike
oh, and BTW those ungrounded Power amps are handy when you want to surprise the
Guitar player or the Vocalist !
I do not recommend to use ungrounded power amps. It's important that everything is grounded, but there should be no ground loops. That can be a bit of a puzzle...
