I was checking out this rig rundown with Victor Wooten and now I'm intrigued by his magnetic instrument cable. He calls it a Snap Jack. Anyone else seen this?
I think I'd like to try it, but...one major drawback. With an active bass, leaving that plug in the guitar is still going to suck down your battery. And leaving that plug in seems like half the value of the thing, no? http://youtu.be/oPz3Dd754w0?t=34s
