My first guess would be is that the electro socket is slightly recessed, so most right angle jacks won't work because they can't go in far enough to make contact.  Since the mono (or stereo - depending on application) jack threads into the electro socket insert, screw it in a little further so that the threads of the jack stick out a little more than to the edge of the electro socket.  If that doesn't work, get an extension cable that is male on one end and female on the other, just to use the Ampeg thing.  Or, you can always change to a football side jack.
