for connecting an amp to a cab i know to use a speaker cable, and from guitar to amp just an instrument cable, but for an effects loop, to go from the amp effects out to the effects and from the effects back to the amp, do i use a patch cable, or can i just use an instrument cable? i would use patch cords in between my effects pedals

thanks

Regular instrument cables. Patch cords are called that because that's what they do, patch a small hole in your effects chain, but they are no different in the wiring than an instrument cable (except for length).
