      Switchcraft introduces the AAA Series or Q-G r Twist XLR connectors. The Q-G r Twist Series is available in male or female cord plug, 3 through 7 pins or contacts. The unique features are the easy twist on combination handle/strain relief, and the reduced number of parts to assemble. With the insert built into the front shell, and the strain relief pre-loaded into the handle, the end user has only two parts to assemble - slide the handle onto the cable, solder the terminations, and twist on the handle. As the handle is tightened, the strain relief tightens around the outer jacket of the cable. Teeth on the strain relief keep it from rotating around the cable jacket and twisting the cable. The strain relief was designed to accommodate the most popular cable sizes. A rugged die-cast metal handle insures optimum protection, and increases signal shielding. Popular options include black and gold finishes, as well as a lower cost plastic handle version.

        Comments about SWITCHCRAFT CORPORATION Switchcraft AAA3FZ 3-Pin Female XLR Connector Cable End - Nickel Handle:

        This is a repeat of my review of the M version, but it's worth repeating myself. I'm an old guy who has over the years used just about every XLR connector out there and these are the best bar none. Only two pieces, very solid grounding of the shell, and a tight grip on the cable. You can hand tighten the shell, but the all metal shell also has wrench flats so you can get it really tight. The Switchcraft green insulator takes a lot of heat without melting. The shell is all metal and very rugged. Much better than the old Switchcraft XLR with the little screws, and also better than those XLRs from Liechtenstein, and at a lower price.
