Looking to add MIDI to your project? This is a female, 5-pin, right-angle DIN 5/180? connector which will interface with most standard MIDI cables.
The pins are spaced by just about 0.1", making these connectors easy to prototype with. The contacts are rated to 2A @100VAC and 1A @ 24VDC.
Keep an eye out for upcoming MIDI-based products using these connectors!

Put it on a protoboard and rip out your circuit. Find the pinout and solder. Simple as it gets. This is the same part I replaced in a production midi drum set. It's "the part that gets used" as it were.
