The Planet Waves Banana Plug, a revolution to speaker wire termination as we know it. No Stripping! No twisting! Connection via the gold-plated pin is direct to the banana plug. The connection pin inserts directly into the speaker wire and enables complete 360 degree contact with the wire while it is maintained within its jacket, virtually eliminating oxidation over time. The patented screw secures the jacket holding the wire securely in place and will not loosen. Gold-plated, fully tested for superior signal transfer, shallow depth, and better wire management.
