My Cumberland needs help
« on: June 02, 2010, 07:52:11 PM »
The input jack on my Cumberland needs replaced. I am having a hard time finding one online, went to the Washburn store and it is temporarily closed. Can anyone tell me where I can get get a jack online or do I need to call Washburn. Thanks

It cuts out sometimes I've tried cleaning the contacts with contact cleaner ane emery cloth it works for awhile and then its back to the same thing its a barrel type jack and the contacts are not exposed so they are hard to clean with anything other than contact cleaner

Try going to a sporting goods store and get a cleaning brush for a .22 rifle.  You could probably even get by for one for a larger rifle, but what you really want is a long, round brush, sort of like a miniature bottle brush to stick into that jack, right, so a good rule of thumb would be to take your cord and match the diameter of the plug that inserts into the jack when you choose your cleaning brush.
