Question for amp experts

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by TenaciousE, Feb 28, 2008.

  1. At the risk of sounding completely ignorant...I just had a new Marshall VBA 400 delivered, but the power cord was not included. So the dealer is mailing the cord out tomorrow, but I obviously want to plug it in tonight. I have a power cord from a GK 800 RB with the three prongs that will fit the Marshall, but I'm not sure if it is compatible or if it even matters. The amp says 120V-60 Hz, and the cord has 10A-125 V written on it. Are these cords universal, or does the voltage or some other variable have to match? I know nothing about electronics (alot of good two semesters of pre-med physics did me). Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Its pretty much the same cord for every electrical appliance. Computers use the same cord at elast.
  3. +1 they're all IEC cords whether that stands for International elec. cord, International earwig control I dunno, But they all fit & work OK as long as they have a ground prong-3 prongs/sockets.
