Is this wire acceptable for amp building?

Postby Returnsnull » Sat 04/20/19 4:29 pm

I have a ton of this wire from my pedal building days and just wanted to check if it's acceptable for amp building before I start re-dressing the leads on my 18w TMB.

Any areas I should avoid using this wire on (other than using shielded for the inputs)?

20AWG is fine for most things in amps. You will want some 18AWG also. Double check, but the voltage rating should be 600V, which is plenty for these builds.

Thanks,
Josh
