How to plug guitar into a banana plug input? Answered


Most amps I've seen use banana plugs on their _outputs_ only. Make sure you aren't about to fry your guitar's pickup...

Easy way is to go to radio shack and get an adapter to take your 1/4" plug and adapt it to the banana plug input.  But that's an odd combination.  You might have to go to RCA first then RCA to banana plug.

Another way if you have some extra cords is to just put banana plugs on the end of an extra guitar cord.

Or you could just buy a 12" jumper with 1/4" plugs on each end and put the banana plugs on that.  RS has screw on or clamp on banana plugs.

Good luck.
