    Hello forum and Happy 2020!

    I am using Mini Amp Gizmo with RRN cable. My amp is Mark V. According to FAQ this should work fine but I won't be able to use EQ. However I can't use FX loop either. It won't turn on. Is something wrong in my setting? FX loop turns on with amps own footswitch.

    Thank you for your help!

    Sorry, the FAQ is incorrect. I just traced through the schematic, and the FX loop won't work when using an RRN cable. Here's the new FAQ text:

    Can I use an RRN cable with a Mark V®?

    You can, but the cable will not control the fx loop, and the EQ control will be weird - turning on the 4 switch on the Gizmo will activate the EQ AND select channel 3. The EQ issue could potentially be fixed by modifying the cable.

    Thank you for your reply. I ordered Mark V cable from your store. As I live in Finland it is a long wait before I have that cable. Fortunately your store had it and it didn't have to be build for me. Thanks again!
