    Would anyone possibly have a link to where I could buy the cable used to loop a pedal between the MB Pre amp & Echo in the UK?
    Unfortunately this mess they call Brexit has made it very expensive to order stuff from overseas now.. Thanks.

    Anyone else know of any? The ones on Amazon don’t look great quality to be honest…

    Are you good with a soldering iron? Get a 1/4" stereo male plug and cut a guitar cord in half.

    Nick… Tavo hooked me on FB with the Link for the Hosa on Amazon, but they ship from the US.. Probably get stung with charges now here in the UK with this Brexit mess. Thanks anyway..

    Just remember since it is trs to two ts if it doesn’t seem to work when connected switch the ta cables around one is send one is return and until you figure out which is which it is easy to reverse them then it just doesn’t work right.

    Looks like a good one.

    If you haven’t found/bought one yet…. have you tried calling a few local shops? They may have some TRS patch cables that aren’t advertised online. I’d also try to get a right angled one if possible like the one above to tuck it in nice and tight to the MB side jack.

    Out of curiosity, which pedal are you planning on placing in the loop?

    Looks like the best option for you.

    I’m sure they sell Roland or Rockboard y-splitter cables somewhere in the UK, but neither looks much better than the one on Amazon, and the Roland one is about double in price.

    Have you tried Award-Session? I think the company is in London.
    The carry a line of cables called Cleartone - looks like high quality stuff.

    Thanks for all the help & suggestions guys.
    Managed to find the Hosa cable recommended by Tavo on EBay here in London UK for the staggering price of £6.38!!! I’ll give it a go!
    My next question is without looking At anything properly yet but which jack connects to what out of the 3? :)
