Okay, so the other day I was playing my guitar, and I went to adjust some settings on my Boss Bluesdriver.

When I stood back up and started to move away from my amp I stepped on one of my cords, and subsequently damaged it.

I'm not entirely sure as to what the problem is - it appears as though there was a rip in the outter rubber surrounding the wires, but I'm not sure what the matter internally may be.

I took out the cord and plugged it back in, and moved back and forth to see if I could get anything out of it.

At some points I was able to get sound to come through, while at others I was not.

I think that there's a possibilty that I (somehow) totally ****ed the wires and pulled one apart, and I can only get sound when I'm in the right spots so that the two different wires are touching.

Is there anyway I can check to see what the problem is to possibly avoid spending money on a new cord?

Thankfully I can still play with my amp, but without my pedal.

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I've never really had any problems with any of my gear before, so I wasn't sure of what to do.

I mean, cords are fairly cheap, but I usually don't have money, and my parents probably won't want to spend any money on guitar-related equipment for me.

You could always try to solder the broken parts back together, but I'd just recommend getting a Monster cable- they have lifetime warrentys on them.

I was gonna say the same thing.
