Hi,

My friend gave me
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Monster-Cable-P500-Speaker-Cable-14?sku=331673

I already have a monster sound guitar cable to connect my guitar into my amp. I recently got a pedal. I want to connect my guitar into the pedal using my personal guitar cable. Can I use the cable shown above to connect my pedal into my amp?

Thanks.

you can. but unlike a regular guitar cable it isn't shielded so it'll be kinda noisy.

NOO

guitar cable wires are much thinner than a speaker wire, so they can't put all that power through such a tiny wire. long explanation short, it'll fry your amps power section.

Its actually a big "No No" to use a guitar cable for a speaker one. It just doesn't have the sheilding of more importantly the capacity to handle that much power. I suppose you could use a speaker cable for a guitar one, but at the price it's surely better advice to get a proper replacement.

Yes and no. On low watt solid states you can get away with it due to them needing to handle a lot lighter load. It is not a good idea on tube amps, as while it may also be able to handle the load at lower volumes, crank it and the cable will fail and it will fry your output transformer.
