Cable Problem:

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Osama_Spears, May 24, 2003.


  1. I have a problem guys...

    my room is sorta small,and I have a 10 foot cable for practice...

    and lately it's been getting very twisted and tangily...

    it's bothering me cause the input to my amp almost gets pulled out from just going to the other side of my room...


    any suggestions on how to get it untangled and prevent it?

    thanks...

    get a longer cable. A nice one. Like a planet-waves cable.

    Unplug one end and twist it in whichever direction untwists it. Seriously.

    What munji said.

    And if the cable seems to have got itself into a permanent twist, lay it out in the sun on a hot day. Straighten it out occasionally till all the kinks are gone.
