    Hi guys,

    I have just recently purchased an MT15 with matching cab. I have been using a patch cable to connect the head to the cab and I was told by a friend that it wasn’t advisable to do that. I was just wondering if people could recommend a cable to purchase instead?

    Many thanks in advance

    I’m not entirely sure what else you would use.
    You can pay quite a bit for a snooty speaker cable if you like. I just use a little 3 footer.

    Somebody else might know more.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You want to use a speaker cable, not an instrument cable, or a pedalboard patch cable. Those cab fry your amp.

    Yup...You definitely need to use a speaker cable between an amp head and a cabinet...(Bass or guitar).
    They look similar, but speaker cables are usually little thicker. I always put a piece of yellow tape around my speaker cables,
    so I could tell the difference when in a hurry. But you'll know immediately if you try a speaker cable for your guitar,...Buzz Central!!!!

    Yellow tape, that's a great idea!
