so im gonna buy a new cable for my guitar to go from my guitar to my pedals but i heard it was a stereo jack that was "incompatible with any pedals". It looks just like other cords and i thought the input for pedals was the same as for the amp... yeah i just dont wanna waste money so can this happen?
There are stereo pedals, the Boss DD7 for example, and there are also stereo (balanced) instrument cables. The standard cables (unbalanced) cables are the most common but you can use stereo cables just fine. There is a slight difference, usually stereo have 2 plastic rings on the conector.

Cables used for amps, guitars and FX etc are all usually 1/4". Most used for instruments to an amp are called mono because they only have one channel, stereo has two you'll notice that there are divisions on the ends. They should work, it just means you won't be using both channels.
