Mini-plugs and even so-called “phone plugs” are very poor in serious audio work, especially in an outdoor environment with extremes of humidity and temperature.
They lose electrical contact and need to be cleaned and re-plugged at periodic intervals.
Gold plated ones are much better, but better still are screw terminals, checked seasonally for firmness.
