    Neutrik is just a company that makes good quality jacks and plugs and stuff. If a bass has one, that is a good thing. It will work with your regular guitar cord.

    There are a few different Neutrik jacks available for instrument use (many identical to Switchcraft), but you probably mean the kind that accepts either a 1/4" or an XLR plug. You can use your standard 1/4" plugs with them, in which case they don't sound any different from "regular" Switchcraft jacks.

    Or it could be the locking 1/4" jacks, which also sound the same except the connection locks when a plug is inserted.

    Both cost a lot more than the standard Switchcraft jacks, and both take up a lot more space. Neither sounds better than the Switchcraft when used with 1/4" plugs, but they do have the advantages of flexibility (in the 1/4" /XLR combo) and security (the locking).
