    though i dont know what kinf of cord you shouyld use, ive heard that a good cord is gonna keep your tuner from going back and forth at all like it usually does when you play a note

    No you don't want to use speaker cable for anything but speakers. For everything else use shielded cable.

    yeah a shielded cable is your best bet.

    If you are planning on going out of the "tuner out" jack in the amp, you can get away with a lower cost cable. If you are either putting it in before your amp input, out the FX loop, or (yes, I've seen it done) between the preamp and poweramp stages of the head, you'll want to use a better quality cable.

    I'm a big fan of Fender Electrovolts. They are great quality, but are affordable. I use them on my rig for any cable of 3' or less. More than 3', and I'm looking at Monster or Planet Waves.

    Hosa, Livewire, Ernie Ball, or Peavey also make good, inexpensive patch cables for this sort of use. Peavey makes a 6-pack of 3' mono cables in 6 bright colors. Work well for rack patching and you need to see the cables against the black of the inside of a rack.

    Out of the Tuner Out, I usually use a simple Radio Shack 5' or however long it is. Cost is like $3, and it works just fine as it is not in the signal path.

    or if you're trying for an even frequency response, try B flat
