Must have for Bose L1 Model II

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

Great quality product. This adapter is necessary to send a balanced signal to the Bose L1 Model II system with standard XLR cable from mixer. Bose only has a 1/4" TRS input for a balanced signal. No XLR input anymore. Although the Bose T1 Tonematch (optional) has XLR inputs, the output to the Bose is via a special cable & connector (not standard). Summary: if you want a balanced signal to the L1 Mod II without the T1 Tonematch, get this adapter. Well worth the cost.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

    I needed a xlr to quarter inch converter, and I ordered this one because it was reasonably priced and seems to be of good quality, when I brought it home and plugged it into an amp, there was so much hum I couldn't even use it and I waited two weeks for something that I can't even use.Extremely upset, Never ordering from that brand again.

    Pretty straight forward xlr adaptor. Has a nice tight and secure fit to a male xlr cable. Good quality and solidly built. Highly recommend this unit for use on amps without xlr inputs.

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

          We needed some converters and thought this would work like a rather expensive one we got from RS. Obviously intended for use with some kind of pre-amp, but that's not clear from the description. This was completely useless to us and now we've sunk the cost of shipping for this back and forth. Recognize it may be inexperience on my part towards the technology, but kind of a bummer that it wasn't more apparent.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

            Have you been at a setting where there's no sound system, but they only provided you some amplifier? Apart from playing your musical instrument, you're also expected to speak to the audience, let alone sing?

            Well, this is your one stop solution that might come in handy in the least expected of times. Assuming that you have another 1/4" jack input on the amplifier, simply snap the microphine's male end to the adapter, and then insert the 1/4" jack of the adapter to the amplifier, and voila! Vocals!

            Seriously, even if it's not for a concert, imagine being at a gathering, where an amplifier was provided. Mics that use the 1/4" jacks are usually flimsy. With a proper mic and mic cable, this adapter is a life saver.

            Very Useful Adapter

            By 

            from Chattanooga, TN

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

            I have owned this for about a year now, and the whole time i've owned this I have been wondering where it has been my whole life. This adapter is very useful especially if you need to plug a mic into a guitar, bass, acoustic, or keyboard amp. It will give you hardly any feed back, and it will save you from running into disaster. One thing I'm worried about with the adapter is that it might get ripped out of the amp and leave the end of it in there. If I were you I would buy this.

            Drop some knowledge

            By 

            from L.A., CA

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

            Okay so I just can't sit by and let you guys buy something without knowing what you're buying. The reviewer below mentioned that it produces no noise and he uses it to plug his microphone into his stompboxes. This is not the reason this adapter exists. Its possible to use it that way, but if you're going to, its best to get a TS version, not a TRS. Unless by some chance your pedals are balanced (theyre not). KNOW the difference between TS and TRS! Do NOT go around saying 1/4" all the time. That can describe a number of different connections. TRS is not inherently a "stereo" connection. It means its "balanced", which means you have two patch of signal running through the cable, to be phase reversed in order to eliminate interference, but only if you have something with a balanced amplifier to plug into (ie mic pre-amp). Mostly this adapter is to simply make an XLR go to a TRS jack. TRS and XLR work on the exact same principle, they're just different mechanics. Notice the 'R', it stands for Ring, meaning it has another connection over a TS, which stands for Tip Sleeve. Sleeve is always the ground, just like in an XLR pin 1 is always the ground. If you use a TRS for stereo, you will be doing so unbalanced. So for me, I'm buying these adapters for one specific purpose, to bypass the phantom power in my interface for dynamic mics. Simple, but a problem solver none the less. These are magic. Know your connectors! -Knowledge dropped.

            Super-Useful Adapter!

            By 

            from Billings, MT

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter:

            I own a Planet Waves XLR-1/4" Adapter (Item #PW-P047AA), and this adapter has come in handy many times! My preamp has only a 1/4" input, but this adapter allows me to turn it into an XLR input for a microphone or other XLR device. This adapter also allows me to plug a microphone into my guitar stompboxes for some crazy vocal effects! You can even use this adapter in a 1/4" output jack to utilize XLR cable, rather than 1/4" cable. It's definitely worth having in your gig bag! This adapter is durable, provides a great connection, and produces no noise. The gold-plated connections also guard against the corrosion that other metals are prone to. I own and use many Planet Waves products of various types for performing and recording, and they deliver an awesome signal! Planet Waves guarantees all of its cables and adapters for life, and they're built to last a lifetime! This adapter is well-worth the investment!
