    OK, so I went to a jam session a couple weeks ago and forgot one of my cables there so i haven't been playing out of my spider valve mkii until this weekend when i picked up a new cable. So i didn't realize this at the jam session because i did not use my fx loop, but one of my cable tips broke off inside the fx loop and now i can not use it. the amp still works but i have a piece of the cable tip stuck in it :realmad:

    I was wondering what i should do, because its not the amps fault, its the shitty cable. And i don't want to pay some guy to open my amp up just to remove the tip.

    The cheapest and only thing i could think of was super gluing the tip back on to the cable but i don't know if it will work, and it may f the amp up:wallbash:

    Has anyone else ever had this happen to them? :ugh:

    Can you get a good close-up picture of the jack + tip in question?

    Depending on how it broke will determine the best course of action, though super glue to a rod that can fit inside the tip might work...

    Do not open the chassis of the amp unless you know what you're doing.
    You may have to just bite the bullet and get an amp tech to do it for you. You'll get charged with labor costs most likely, but it'd be worth it for a problem free amp.

    the very tip broke off. it goes tip, plastic, then rest of the cable, the tip some how broke :scratch:.

    basically i can insert the cable tip (or whats left of it) back in to the tip that broken, but i dont know if glue will adhere to it. It looks like the orginall was glued on to begin with :wallbash:

    i have a feeling i might have to take it to a tech, but i don't think any exist around me :ugh:
