OK...I must be an idiot. Can someone explain to me how to install George L's? I have right angle plugs. I cut the cable to length (straight cut/no stripping), insert the cable into the little hole in the bottom of the plug, bend it slightly toward the right angle notch, screw the end cap back on. It appears to pierce the cable slightly. I connect two pedals, plug in....nothing. I try connecting the two pedals with a pre-made cable. It works. What am I doing wrong?
