Flex Patch Cable.

Flex Patch Cable



Is it time to move away from solderless patch cables for your pedal board and focus on durability?

When flexibility is important and getting into tight spaces on your pedalboard, we are offering the Flex Patch Cable! We feel this is one of the best guitar patch cables on the market. If you're looking durability in a soldered patch cable, look no further!

This cable is our new patch cable with Bare Copper 20AWG conductor and Bare Copper spiral shielding with 98% coverage and smaller diameter than our instrument cables (.230"). The Flex Patch comes GLS Audio Pancake plugs with gold signal contacts. We prefer the GLS Pancake plug due to their low profile, but mainly because of their signal/shield lug contacts!

The Flex Patch will come in the following lengths - 6", 8" and 10". Our Flex Patch has a flat price of $10 for each of the 3 lengths. But any cable length can be made and we will adjust price accordingly. If you're looking for custom guitar patch cables for your pedalboard, submit a custom build request. You can upgrade to G&H GGN Right Angle or G&H Stubby Straight plugs as well!

Please note, GLS pancakes are great for pedals placed close together - side by side. The pancakes offer a shallow height profile, but a larger profile in width. Because of this, if you have jacks close together (for example - stereo outs on a pedal or loop stips), you may need to go with a G&H Right Angle to get plugs closer together. The G&H Stubby Straight are great for pedal loop strip systems. You can also mix G&H Right Angle, Stubby Straights and GLS Pancake - just select the appropriate plug before adding them to your cart!


  • Conductor/Shield 99.99% BC
  • Capacitance at 37pF/ft.
  • Spiral copper shield (98% coverage)
  • 20AWG conductor.
  • GLS Pancakes - Nickel Shield / Gold Tip
  • G&H Right Angle - Gold Shield / Gold Tip
  • G&H Stubby Straight - Nickel Shield / Nickel Tip
  • Cable milled in the United States
  • Cable hand assembled in Missoula, Montana
  • SKU: SKU-43E3A1E3

Answer
We have a variety of wire mills that we work with. All of the wire mills we work with our in the United States. We take extreme pride that our cable is milled in the United States and hand assembled here in Missoula, Montana.
Answer
Typically, cable capacitance is an issue with longer runs so it's not really an issue with patch cables.
Answer
That's largely dependent on the application and requirements. Pancakes will give you a lower profile in height, but has a larger footprint on width (.82" wide). Some pedals with narrow jack placement can have issues with pancakes. The G&H right angle has a narrow profile in width (.50"), but is taller than a pancake.
Answer
Stubby straights are great for switching systems or with pedals that have narrow jack placement. The Stubby Straight has a shorter barrel (1.05") length.
Answer
U-Config is the default standard where plugs are facing the same direction. This is ideal for pedals next to each other with jacks on the side. If you have a situation where one pedal has side jacks and the pedal next to it has top mounted jacks - the S-Config fits great. Also, if you require a long patch from one pedal on a bottom row to a pedal on the top row on the opposite side, a S-Config would work great.
Answer
We offer the most popular lengths for the type of patch cables. If you need something special, please submit a custom build request and we'll get back to you with the ability to purchase your specific cables.

What James T. Said...


Testimonial:

I bought a couple of Rattlesnake Instrument Cables in Ash weave after losing my longtime favorite cables from another premium manufacturer. Braided cables can be hit or miss for me. Sometimes they bunch up in weird ways and won’t lay flat. Or they’re too stiff for instrument use. But the Rattlesnake weave is perfect. It has an unusually coarse texture. But it lays flat, coils easily (and properly), and is flexible enough. The plug connections are reinforced with stiff rubber. And I like that the outer jackets won’t inadvertently spin open. The rubber obstructs access to the solder joints. But with such heavy duty construction, can’t foresee the connections being severed in any scenario. The Ash color is like a sandy gray. It looks gray straight on. But has a hint of brown when seen at an angle. It’s more interesting and distinguishable than plain black. But subdued enough to not be visually distracting on stage. There are two basic philosophies on instrument cable audio quality. Some cables go for sonic transparency. Others deliberately load the signal down to roll off some highs with a resonant peak at an assumed sweet spot. The Rattlesnakes are on the transparent end of the spectrum. The guitar comes through sounding clear like itself. I appreciate that Rattlesnake company lists the capacitance and shielding specs instead of printing up fancy packaging with meaningless marketing catch phrases. The capacitance, shielding, and build quality are all that really matter in cables. Everything else is B.S. Overall, these are my new favorites. I’ll go to Rattlesnake for my future cable needs

Thoughts about our Service:

Perfect. Fast service. No problems.

What was purchased:

2 instrument cables in Ash weave

Thoughts about our Service:

Customer service was exceptional, to get a video thank you just an hour or so after placing my order was impressive. I may be incorporating that into my own business. Ordered Saturday morning, had the cable in hand two days later.

What was purchased:

Purple 15' guitar cable, straight and right angle.

What John S. Said...


Testimonial:

The order experience was great. My order showed up quickly. When I opened the box I saw the instrument cables were a nice reusable cloth bag. I got the rattlesnake weave and they look awesome. I tried using the cables out and they feel like a really high quality cable They're nice a flexible but it looks like the ends will last. Plugged it in and there's no obvious hums of any kind. I live in a pretty old house with old electrical, and every weak link in the chain magnifies an issue pretty easily. Even my Mogami cable has more hum than this. The guitars and amps I tried all sounded great. No complaints based on this first impression. Would definitely buy more.

Thoughts about our Service:

Great! Prompt emails from the company informing me about the status. A personal message from Hank was a nice touch.

What was purchased:

2 Rattlesnake weave (one 15' TRS, one 10' standard), and 2 patch cables.

What Alex F. Said...


Testimonial:

I just got the cable, and it works. Honestly, I haven't had a chance yet to put it through it's paces or compare it to my Mogami or Vox or planet waves cables, so bear that in mind. First of all, the whole experience in buying and receiving feels like a boutique cable (b/c it is). Pick your length, you connector types, your colors, etc. I opted for a 15' TRS Copper, non-"snake head" cable. The cable comes in a box in a cloth bag like you might find with high-end dress shoes, stickers, a velcro cable wrap, etc. It's just so well put together and packaged - completely unlike buying your typical Planet Waves or George L or Lava Cables. The Rattlesnake cables seems to be almost the same as Caulfield Cable's Tour Series in terms of construction, capacitance (the Rattlesnakes have better capacitance than the Caufield Standard Series), flexibility, etc. Even without the 20% discount that you can regularly get, the Rattlesnakes are significantly less expensive, AND have better plugs. And there are the regular sales for different colors, even colors that you don't normally see on their site. It's a win-win! I bought this on a whim, basically. I found a blog article. Then I read up on the cable quality on TheGearPage (all glowing reviews). I compared to Caulfield Cables. Rattlesnake wins, easily. Half the price of Lava, better than Planet Waves, cheaper than the equivalent Caufield. These will be my standard go-to instrument, speaker, etc. cables from now on. And if they start making the MIDI cable variants that Caufield does, I'll switch to those too.

Thoughts about our Service:

I have not had to deal with customer service, but the discussions on thegearpage specifically call out their outstanding customer service. YMMV

What was purchased:

15' TRS Rattlesnake instrument cable, copper color weave

What Don S. Said...

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake Cable Company is the new benchmark for customer service. I ordered my cables on a Saturday night and by the time I woke up the next morning I had a personalized thank you video in my inbox with with an estimation of delivery. The cables showed up just as advised in really cool Rattlesnake cable bags with an additional personal thank you note inside. With service like this, I'll never buy cables from anywhere else.

1 Snake head cable, 1 standard cable and 6-pack of flex patch cables

What Kenny P. Said...


Testimonial:

These are easily the highest quality feeling and looking cables that I’ve ever owned! They come very well packaged, stylish, and sexy!! The tone is crisp, clean, and full just how I imagined they’d be. The Snake Head is my favorite new cable. Highly recommend.

Thoughts about our Service:

Top Notch Customer Service here. I messed up my order twice and they were nice enough to help me out and get me exactly what I needed. The cables shipped and arrived quickly and I even received a personalized video email after ordering which was super cool. Thank you very much Hank and RattleSnakeCables!

Testimonial:

So far the quality of my 4 - 12 inch copper patch cables with the gold ends along my 15 foot copper cable with gold ends running from my Suhr Classic S Pro guitar to my Carr Mercury V amp along with my other 15 foot copper cable with running from my pedal board to my amp is unbelievable quality. Literally the best that I have seen in a long time.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank at Rattlesnake Cables has literally the best customer service that I’ve seen when it comes towards buying gear like cables. Nobody responds quicker and more professional than in the business. I will definitely be buying more from rattlesnakecables.com

I have 4 - 12 inch copper patch cables with gold end connections, one 15 foot copper cable running with gold end connections from my guitar to my amp, and finally another 15 foot copper cable with gold connections running from my pedal board to my amp.

What Rik E. Said...


Testimonial:

Hank and his team helped me reconfigure my pedalboard and designed a custom loom to get three signal paths to my mixer. What a difference! It just makes me feel much more relaxed and able to create. What I wasn't expecting is the overall improvement in tone! I was actually blown away when I first powered everything up and plugged in my Telecaster. A whole bunch elusive hum and noise are now resolved, and my instruments sound rich and vibrant. Thank you Rattlesnake Cable Company!

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank responded to my custom build request within a couple hours with a phone call and helped me understand how they could design a solution for me. They built the custom loom and shipped it the same day. I received the order before I was even ready for it. Hank followed up with a custom video thanking me for my order. Rattlesnake Cable Company provides GREAT customer service!
