    That's the beauty of the FS-6.
    TRS Stereo instrument cable is all you need.

    I have to use a gizmo cable for my dual FS-5's.
    Dual TS Mono to Single TRS Stereo.
    It sucks.

    I'm going for a FS-6 model because it's much more
    flexible, and the single TRS cable keeps it simple.

    Thanks man!


    So is a TRS cable different to just a basic instrument cable?

    TRS = Tip / Ring / Sleeve.
    AKA: Stereo Cable, Headphone Cable, or Balanced Patch Cable

    You want cable with ends that look like this --

    TS = Tip / Sleeve
    AKA: Mono Cable, Instrument Cable, or Unbalanced Patch Cable

    Stereo TRS split into 2 Mono TS.
