Long story short, I was plugging in everything no-problemo until I got to my Carbon Copy. It took a lot of extra force to shove the cable in (bad habit, I know; I'm just very anxious to have it be completed after so many months of saving up), so I was quite concerned. I took the cable back out and, lo and behold, there's a small gouge on one side of the cable. So, my inquiry is two-fold: 1. Is this a problem I need to address with the manufacturer? 2. Does this mean my cable is gonna be toast/present future problems for my board? I have not tried actually playing through the cable out of fear of some catastrophic failure that blows up the pedal(s), and I can't anyway due to sleeping family and lack of easy access to quiet practicing methods.
