    i recently bought a 300h head. love it so far, but it didnt come with a power cord (tested it with a power cord from a different amp)

    the only replacement i could find was this one

    http://www.britishaudioservice.com/shop_trace_access.shtml

    its the only one they list on that site. is it safe to assume that it will work with my head?

    That cord configuration is standard on computers and many amps, but whatever you do don't get one that has less than 14 gauge conductors. Radio Shack/Circuit City/Staples etc. sell these, as does Parts Express and about a thousand other sources.

    is a cord a cord? or do i have to match it with the specs on the back fo the amp or something?, if so, what specs should i pay attention to?

    A cord is a cord for the most part. Just make sure it is like Bill said, 14ga or heavier.

    Whenever we get new servers in the data-center, I'll snag a power cord or two to have as spares... 14 ga., 12 ft... We buy short cords to rack the servers, so the long cables usually get trashed... The other nice thing about them is that the winding "bends" get worked out fairly easily and they stay very straight!
