    Kensel,

    You need a Switchcraft 13A jack:

    I've attached a schematic page as a thumbnail, which would not open in the preview.

    Ray, are you sure it isn't a Switchcraft 113?

    Shea,

    Going by the print in the posted link, what he needs is a jack with an isolated 'make' circuit, to connect V1a's output to V1b's input (this is different from the original MK I Boogie prints I have, which require an isolated 'break' circuit). The 13A can do either of these plus shorting if need be, so I figured all bases were covered. It's also a standard Switchcraft metal/phenolic item, which I've found to be pretty durable (it may need to be chassis-isolated, I don't know).

    The only 113 info I could find seems to indicate a standard stereo plug, non-switching (I haven't scoured the Web, so I could be mistaken). It's also one of the plastic-body Switchcrafts that I don't personally care for too much, but maybe Boogie uses those on the reissues - I haven't seen one yet.

    Ray -

    Check out this page from the Mouser catalog: http://www.mouser.com/catalog/626/853.pdf

    Out of the circuit diagrams shown on the upper right, the 13A is circuit 3, and the 113 is circuit 9. I thought the #1 input jack on the schematic that Kensel linked to was more like circuit 9 than circuit 3.

    I prefer the jacks with phenolic wafers too, but there aren't any listed there with "circuit 9."

    The Mesa MK1 uses a Switchcraft 13 on the high input jack. they are a pain to find, at least they were last time I needed one.

    Shea,

    You're right - I stand corrected. The 13A is a 'transfer' jack, with the switch contacts working directly on the tip contact without any isolation. The 113 has a true isolated-make circuit, and is the one to use - thanks!

    I've got two Switchcraft steel/phenolic jacks here with two isolated make/break contact sets (tip and ring) each, possibly pulled from a Music Man RD100 amp - I guess they've stopped making them, or maybe Mouser just doesn't carry them - probably not a real big seller.
