    I really like the digital effects on my Ampeg, but I lost the cable that goes for the footswitch. Can I just use a regular instrument cable? If not, what do I use? Where can I find it? Thanks!

    YOU DA MAN T!
     
  4. if it uses two 1/4" jacks, then yes, you only need speaker cable for a situation where theres a high current going through the cable (ie after the power section)

    i dont think it would be wise to have a pedal plugged in after the power section on an amp tho :p

    1. Yeah it has two 1/4" jacks. So I would need a speaker cable, not an instrument cable?
    2. What do you mean by "have a pedal plugged in after the power section on an amp"?
     
  6. no, instrument cable is what to use, there is no need to use speaker cable because it is for high current, which SHOULDNT be going to a foot pedal :p
