    What kind of cable do you use in your effects loop? Will a cheaper cable work here? Thanks!

    Regular instrument cables. Cheap will work, but not for as long as a more heavy duty cable.

    A good quality cable of any sort should work in most loops. The differences in cables as they pertain to a high impedance guitar signal will probably not make any difference in a well designed effects loop since the signal is buffered. That's why a buffered signal can travel such a long distance without tonal degradation where as a high impedance signal can't.

    I use Evidence Audio cables for all connections to the amps. Best cables I've ever heard in over 37 years of playing guitar.

    I'm not much of a cable snob but I really like these. They are cheap and perform well.
