#2
how else would you unplug your cable?

i think whoever pointed that out to you is either A) making fun of you or B) really stupid.

NOOOO! You have to flip the release switch on your guitar first!


JK dude, how else are you supposed to get it out?

its best to turn off the power to your amp first if that's what they're getting at...
...no one can save me and you know I don't want the attention...
#6
I don't remember from where but I heard its not good for your amp when you have distortion on.

Either way I hate the buzz from it so I got used to just turning the distortion off or the amp all together.

i dunno, it just seems to me that cables should have some other way than just pullin it out.
It just doesn't seem very "healthy".

Every cable known to man, be it power, audio, or video bar a few exceptions connects to the female socket it essentially the same way...

Agreed. There's only one way to connect to the "female socket." XD

I couldn't resist.

Sig quotes can't be raised in captivity as you are trying to do, they must be taken from their natural environment, the vast plains of the pit for them to be truly beautiful


B# and E# exist. IN THEORY.
Prove me otherwise on your guitar.

Well if you were pulling on the rubber coated part of the cable yea it will eventually break the braided shield part of the wire. Pulling on the metal plug will make it last longer. But know there is no other way dont know of an eject button.

If its a tube amp you risk damage. Turn it on standby first. SS amps probably won't matter, unless you have the volume up high, then could damage the speaker.

Just don't yank it out very quickly. Pull it out slowly. And turn down the volume first.

Why do I feel dirty saying this.

Here's what you do: open up the amp, force open the box surrounding the input jack, and push the cable out with your finger. Make sure that you leave the amp ON with the volume all the way up.

I guarantee you that this is the best way to avoid damaging your cable. I can't guarantee, however, that your amp or your body will remain safe.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.
