Thanks guys for reviewing the covers. 

The big question is, will the dust covers slow up the need to buy new 13-P cables?  I'm hoping the covers go some way towards breaking the nasty purchase cycle - only time will tell.

Cheers, Bill

I find value in using a semi hard case for transporting GK-13 cables , it prevents them getting crushed

One of these headphones cases work to store and transport a few GK cables

This is a great idea - I notice that even kept in the house 13 pin cable ends get oxidisation after a while ( I tend to use my old planet waves cable and the roland ones just sit there as spares

Worked great, thanks Bill. I had fabric covers made for my units but I think your socket covers will do a better job.

Thanks frummox for reviewing the 13-pin covers. Your photo shows how simple it is protecting those precious plugs and sockets.

Spent the past few days working on the 13-Pin covers DIY movie, and hope it gives v-guitar forum members a basic insight.

Bill, Mr. Dust and Mr. Dirt seem to have a British accent. Who knew (pesky foreigners!) ;D

I recently received my 13 pin dust covers.
They are doing an excellent job in keeping the dust at bay from both the sockets and the plugs for all my 13 pin gear.
I have to say it never really occurred to me previously that there would be such a quick build up of dust.
After a few weeks of use though, I'm glad I've got a set now.

Thanks Bill.
