Hi Swisspicks, and welcome to GG.

Those picks look great, and can see how they would sit between fingers very nicely. 

My technique when it comes to holding a pick is pretty bad they keep turning as I play, and I'm sure this design would help.  Either that or I'll have to resort to using a coin like Bryan May does.  ;D  Actually do you make round picks?

Guitar Accessories / Re: Batteries for Effects Pedals, Tuners etc.
« on: August 19, 2017, 04:30:29 PM »
Howard had to buy some spare CR2032 batteries for my Snark Tuner the other day, they seem pretty good, and at that price for 10 they're a bargain.  It would probably cost me that for two batteries at my local supermarket.  My Snark does eat batteries if I forget to turn it off.

I have mains power supplies for all my pedals as  well, but sometimes just having a quick noodle it's handy to just run on batteries. 

I'm assuming most guitars with active pickups run on the 9v batteries, so would be pretty handy for that purpose.

Cables/Pickups / Re: Guitar cable quality?
« on: July 27, 2017, 06:38:28 AM »
Hey Mick,

I know it's an old post, but did you end up finding a new cable? Curious to know what you settled on  :)

If you have a soldering iron you can always make your own. I needed some small patch cables in my workshop for a test rig. I purchased a length of cable and some plugs from Jaycar and made my own cables to the length I needed. Always an option!

Thanks,  I'm still using my original leads at the moment, but I know at least one of them is going to fail soon.  I might buy a couple of plugs and repair it when it does.  Like most leads they almost always fail at one end or the other where the bending takes place. so cutting back and replace plug might work for me.

Afternoon Mick.

I can't imagine that the G5 would not have stereo out.

Here's the back of the G3X

Howard, you're right it does have stereo, not really taken any notice of it until you mentioned it.  Here's the the back of the G5 https://www.zoom.co.jp/sites/default/files/products/downloads/images/G5_rear.jpg
