Replacement jack for a GPS Corvette Bubinga 6

    A little over 1 year ago I bought a GPS Corvette Bubinga 6.

    A few months ago I started to notice that the jack is noisy. I asked my dealer to replace the jack, but he claimed that he could not get the part.

    After checking on the Warwick website, it seems to me the part i need is the “Professional Socket + Lead”.
    But I don’t know which one I need?
    The SP W 50100 C R5 or the SP W 50100 C R4?
    What's the difference?

    Anyone can help?

    Thank you.

    A Switchcraft or comparable stereo inline jack would work.(about 10$)

    I just wanted to update the thread with what I found out.
    First, the difference between the 2 sockets model is the space between the pins for the lead (2 & 2.5 mm).
    The shipping was more expensive then the jack, but it got here (Canada) in 4 days.
    Changing the jack took about 10 minutes, there was only 1 wire to solder.
    The jack feels a lot more "solid" when I plug in then the original jack.

    If there was only one wire to solder, make sure the socket is very tight in the mount because the builder is relying on that connection for your ground. Better would be to run a wire from the ring of the jack to the back of one of your pots, soldering both ends in place..
