DGS brand 1/4" jacks?

	I haven't personally used the DGS/Deltron jacks, but I've used the
ReAn jacks. If you can tolerate an open-frame jack, these are rock solid.
DigiTech uses them in everything they've got, so does dbx for most of
their product line. I'd get ahold of a few - see if Mouser will sample
a few to you. Usually, they're pretty good about letting 1-3 sample
quantities go out. 
	Where I work, we use Jalco jacks on most of our new stuff, but
stick to the die-hard classic Switchcraft for our high-end samplers and
other equipment. 

Hope this helps,

The Proteus
