I have a 1992 Soho Quatro 4 tube, 2 channel preamp.It is a "better" version of a Kitty Hawk Quatro.The input jack on the front pannel has borken its threads. It is a Non PCB mount.and it is like a Marshall 9001 jack Not grounded to the front .If anyone EVER knows where I can find one PLEASE let me know >firstname.lastname@example.org. Also can I use a 6 pin Cliff jack Thanks
The original on those was 8 pins plus a chassis ground wasn't it? If you're going to cut two pins and a ground I guess I'd want to know what you're going to do away with. Was it just a combo jack? Do you have a pic of the non functional jack?

Yes it looks alittle like both and you are right the ground is on the top The only schematic I have seen that looks like it is the old Marshall 9001 preamp.Its a pretty good preamp for Clean and Crunch The other Hot channel I dont use to much.I do not know how to put a picture on this site.My girlfriend might be able to do it or send one over the phone....
Are they solder tabs (for soldering wires to directly), or does this jack mount onto a circuit board? I can't conceive of any reason you need a 8-pin + ground for a guitar jack. We'll assume the jack is shielded from the chassis for a reason.
Go to: Neutrik's / Rean website and find which jack you think is correct.
Then visit: Full Compass
Plan B: desolder the jack from Hot channel and move it over.
Neutrik site as they do really good pictures. A metal jack would probably alleviate the concern over breaking plastic threads.
The Jack is Not PCB mounted,and it is All plastic so it doesn't touch the front pannel The ground connects to a lug on top of the jack It switchs between 2 channels...1, Clean,2,Crunch and 3,Lead ,4,Hot..
The only 9 pin I have seen was on ebay but its a PCB mount for Fender amps made in 1989-92 and the theard part is not long enough.
You could get a metal jack and wrap the outside with electric tape or smear it with silicone. If you don't need a combo jack then a six pin switching jack ought to do the trick provided the hole is the correct size. Of course, if the new jack is smaller you could wrap it with rubber sealing tape too.
