    I have a micromark practice amp. I love it for home practice, and just got the external tweeter for it. What kind of cable can I use to connect it to the amp?

    Guitar type cable or a speaker cable?

    A tweeter is a small speaker ... right?

    Yeah, I know, duh, I bought a speaker cable today. The guy in the store explained it to me. I was wondering if a small effects patch cable would work, because the shorter length would work better.

    Nope. An effect cord is shielded and you have to use unshielded cables for speakers. Otherwise you can cause failure in your gear.
