hello all. I run a stereo cable for my effects loop jack in guitar out to the pedals rather than using junction box. just curious as to what types of cables others are using and what are some recommendations. thanks.

Making you own is kind of fun, but if not...

Check Andrew Olson's website out. You can customize your cable.

Also,

Brian at iocustomguitars.com makes cables for junction boxes, but I'm sure he can also make you a y cable for your pedalboard.

I do the same thing...no box. just never saw the need for it. I use a premade Mogami cable that's a TRS on the guitar end and splits into 2 mono jacks at the other end for the send/receive. If I remember right, I had to modify the way the jacks were wired on the send/receive end because it wasn't built for my intended use, but once it did that it worked great. It's held up well and sounds great. It's all wrapped, neat and tidy. I've been using it for about 8 years. To use a non OBEL guitar, I just unplug the send/receive and run a patch cable in their place and it's instantly a traditional pedal board.

I wish I had this diagram when I first started making my own cables. It beats the "trial and error " approach I struggled with.
