    Putting together a PTJr. and thinking it's going to be a tight squeeze. I don't usually like working with pancake ends that you have to solder the ground to the case... are there good , affordable pancakes w/ two solder contacts?

    PurpleJesus - yeah I've ordered a ton from Mammoth as well. Should have specified I'm looking for just the ends to solder my own cable lengths with.

    I have had great luck with GLS Plugs from Orange County Speakers. They are very easy to work with.

    Fishtale - do they have two contacts? I might just be thinking of the TRS that you have to solder to the case.

    **edited - case closed - they do. GLS it is!

    OP: these have two contact points for soldering (as every TS plug in the world must have).

    I'm just learning to solder and ended up buying some switchcraft Pancake plugs. They are the sturdiest I've found.

    They all have 2 points but not all have 2 lugs which is the major difference. Lots of people don't want to have to solder to the back plate so the GLS and Switchcraft 229 are a fantastic alternative that have 2 actual lugs to make soldering easy!:aok
