Product Description

Size: 6 Pairs

Clean up and strengthen your speaker cable connections with these banana plugs that feature gold plated connectors, a heavy duty steel casing, and a tight cable-screw design. Installation is simple and is best done with a small flat-head screwdriver or a blade of some type. All you need to do is unscrew the head off the banana plug, feed your speaker wire through the hollow casing, unscrew the cable bolt, feed the speaker cable in, tighten the cable bolt, and screw the banana plug back together. All in all you should only need 30 seconds for this entire operation.

Material quality, contactor, backshell, fit, finish, wire securing screw, and threads are excellent. Backshell is two piece steel, knurled segment for ease of tightening. Compared with two types of Nakamichi banana plugs there are some considerations. Sewell backshell is longer, thus if using heavy gage wire, it will load the receiver sockets more and may require cable support. Also, Sewell plugs have only one screw for securing the wiring versus two screws on the Nakamichi. Nakamichi plugs contacts are longer than the Sewell. Nakamichi plugs backshells are plastic with metal threads insert versus all metal backshell on the Sewell. In addition, the Sewell connectors will accomodate heavier gage wire than the Nakamichi plugs. I am using Velocity 12 gage wire and it fits easily in the Sewell. If I was to upgrade the Sewell design, I would make the backshell shorter, the contact pin longer, and include two screws to tighten the wire instead of one. However, in the past two years I bought Nakmichi plugs, Monster, and others but found these Sewell Pro Maestros to be the best quality and value too.

This is a very good product, it's easy and intuitive to use, and it's cheap for what you get: a high-quality, well-constructed, three-piece banana plug. I bought two sets and I'm buying another three sets. The product was well packaged (although it's very sturdy so packaging doesn't really matter), was shipped promptly and arrived quickly. I was hesitant about purchasing because of the negative reviews and comments. To assist others I have written this to address some of those negative comments.

The 3 star review from Tudor is not for this product but for a different product. Tudor states that these plugs have a socket in back to plug in a second banana plug; this is incorrect, the product does not have such a feature, as can be seen by looking at the pictures.

The 1 star review from Tommy Lynn is incomprehensible to me. Although the review appears directed at specific faults in the product, I have now used and examined the product and Mr. Lynn's review simply makes no sense in light of how the product works and is used. For example, he says: "The screw isn't even long enough to get close unless you remove the plastic colored washers, which makes me question their effectiveness with smaller wire as well." This description does not track the product, which has no removable plastic washers and the set screw works perfectly fine. It may be that Mr. Lynn, like Tudor is talking about a different product.

The 3 star review from jharterman sates that the product is difficult to use because the set screw "doesn't screw tight enough (or not all of them) for 16-gauge wire." The set screw is small and requires the use of a small screwdriver of the sort readily available from the hardware store.

They're a solid set, good quality, and i was impressed by their appearance. They're convenient to use, they have a built-in socket in the back for other banana plugs (fairly standard feature)
I'm using them with 18-gauge wire with no troubles, only downside there is that you have to fold over the wire on itself to get enough thickness for the plug to grip - not even really enough an issue to be a con.

Only thing i noticed is that the gold plating rubs off pretty quickly, it'll survive maybe 20 or so repeated insertions / removals, even the knurled base has lost its gold plating just from being handled. If you're doing a permanent audio installation, I'd suggest investing in a fancier set, (especially since they do come loose easily, but not so easily as the 1/5 star reviewer suggests)
I only needed them for a short project, a way to hook up to an amp, and they were perfect for that.

Easily worth double (or even triple) the $27.95 asking price, these well made banana plugs are an excellent value.

Unlike other banana plugs I've used, the Sewell Pro Maestro fits snugly into the speaker terminals with a nice solid connection. It took a surprising amount of force to coax the banana plug into the terminal posts. Once inserted the banana plugs felt solid and secure.

It has a three piece design with a gold plated solid brass head which threads into a beautifully polished gun metal gray solid steel barrel which has tapered "teeth" that gently grip the speaker cable (assuming you're using thick enough cable) when screwed into the bottom of the casing.

The speaker cable is internally fastened behind the head of the banana plug by a small flat-head screw which clamps down on the inserted cable. (Make sure you have a precision screw driver handy - I used a 2mm) Most audio enthusiasts recommend tinning the end of your speaker cables and if you did, the little flat-head screw would offer a more than adequate connection. I, however, opted to insert the bare speaker wire, clamp it down with the screw, then solder the entire cable insert slot. The plugs are surprisingly heavy and appear to be made of high quality materials - they shrugged off the heat of my propane torch with no ill-effects.

The Sewell Pro Maestro banana plugs look fantastic, are well made, and are priced for far less than they are worth. Highly recommended.
