Bantam

A word used to describe patch bays or cables. For all practical purposes it has the same meaning as TT (Tiny Telephone). Western Electric/AT&T invented the Long Frame plug for switchboards, that’s why it’s called a ‘phone’ plug. Switchcraft invented the Tini Telephone and registered Tiny, Mini, TT, etc. In the 1960’s, ADC was formed by a group of x-Soundcraft employees and they needed a name which would not infringe on Switchcraft’s trademark. The Bantam boxing class was the source for the name. Switchcraft now uses the terms “Bantam-Type™”, “TT™” and “TT-Jax™” in the same sentence.
