    Help me find a 1/4" Jack cover!

    I'm looking for a few of these, or something like it:

    Yorkville Sound Weatherproof Plastic 1/4" Jack Cover | MSC0016 | Yorkville Sound

    At a place that actually has them in stock. Find me some on eBay or Amazon (or anywhere in the US) and if they fit the bill (and I buy them) I will reward you with some MG and CQ picks.

    I use the rear input on both of my Axe-Fx, and my guests often get confused and uncable things when they go to plug into them.

    Is Axe-Fx the accepted plural of Axe-Fx?

    Also, corks for a cork-sniffer?

    Maybe one of these. Switchcraft : Telecom Jackfield Accessories
    Couldn't get the image to embed but I think the small red plug on the bottom will work.

    Edit: These are mil-spec so you can safely djent in the djesert.

    Never thought about this before. What a fucking cool idea for people who tour and constantly have to deal with setting up their gear on a dimly lit stage or people who rely on others to set their gear up for them. Plug all the jacks you don't need, and bam, was less potential for cable screw-ups. Want. So very much want.

    People with good luck think they make good life choices. People who make bad life choices blame it on bad luck.

    1/4" (inch) Black Hole Plugs -

    I use these in 3/8ths 5/16ths to plug any potentiometer holes in guitars with pots I am not using. You can find them at Ace Hardware.

    Mesa dealers sometime have slightly fancier ones in 1/4, since Mesa cabs ship with them to plug the inputs in the back of the cab not in use IRRC.

    Pretty much exactly what Mesa uses.

    Or if you want the corksniffer factor, here is one specially designed for audio jacks!
