Flex Patch Cable.

Flex Patch Cable



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

When flexibility is essential 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 for 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 the 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 more prominent 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 is great for pedal loop strip systems. You can also mix G&H Right Angle, Stubby Straights, and GLS Pancake - 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.

I've tried to be careful when purchasing instrument cables. Finding a cable that is durable, non-clumsy, and eye-catching has been a decade-long quest. I've worn out cables from DiMarzio, Fender, Vox, and Klos much sooner than expected. And only one of those companies offers a legitimately Hot Pink cable, that could be considered professional grade. However, once I'd received my first order from Rattlesnake Cable Company, I realized I'd found what I'd been looking for all along. These cables are beyond professional grade. These are industrial grade products by every definition. These cables are over-engineered for durability and functionality. These are the cables I want to use when I'm on stage, when I don't need to be worried about a cable failing or tangling under my feet. Rattlesnake Cables don't tangle like rubberized or cloth-woven cables do. The woven protective sheath over the Rattlesnake cables is rigid, flexible, and yet non-binding as well. When the cables DO get into a tangle, they glide over each other and back out of the knot much easier than cloth or rubber. Additionally, Rattlesnake's splitters, pedals, and junction boxes are over-engineered for infallibility. I could have never have trusted the plastic Rick-O-Sound splitter and flimsy TRS cable that were included with my guitar if I used them on stage. I can, however, trust the thick metal splitter and Rattlesnake TRS (stereo) cable I purchased for myself for Christmas this year. I won't worry about them shorting out in the middle of a set. It didn't hurt that these are made in the state where I grew up. Always good to see quality music equipment coming out of Big Sky Country.

Thoughts about our Service:

I haven't had any issues with any of my orders from Rattlesnake cable. If their tech support is anywhere near as excellent as the sales and shipping department, I anticipate no problems.

Testimonial:

I was never convinced that a cable could make a big difference in the tone of my bass. For years I used cables of different brands and qualities, but without paying attention to the details of them. A few months ago I had the opportunity to try a boutique cable and the difference was like night and day. Suddenly my tone had a quality and color that I had not noticed before, so I started looking for the best cables on the market and I came to Rattlesnake. Hank's patience and guidance for his clients is outstanding and his cables are top-notch. Today I sound better than ever thanks to Rattlesnake cables.

Thoughts about our Service:

The customer service is extraordinary, always attentive to customer needs and ready to answer all questions and clarify doubts. Shipping was super fast and the packaging was very good, they even included a thank you note for the purchase!

Testimonial:

I was looking for a way to use the stereo output option on my bass guitar and no where had a solid answer on what was needed. The major companies were saying using a Y cable but all they offered were 3 feet long cables or weird adapters. I ended up stumbling upon Rattlesnake and I read an article from them talking about how to use it and what gear is needed, with links provided to see what the gear looks like! After ordering the gear, receiving it, and playing with it, I am defiantly hooked with the quality and craftsmanship of the gear, I will defiantly be returning for more!

Thoughts about our Service:

I ordered my products in 2 ordered because I realized I needed a TRS cable after ordering the splitter. Everywhere else had short cables and Rattlesnake was the only one I could find to offer 20ft length. So I ordered it on a separate order. I got a call later that day and the person I spoke to said there was a Halloween discount starting the day, after speaking they gave me the discount and merged my order to get her to save on shipping. In total they saved me $30, they offered to give a refund, gift card, or 4 6”cables. I chose the cable, being $10 each I ended up getting one of the patch cables free. And coming from Montana to Ohio it took no time for it to come in. And they added free sticker and a notepad! I definitely am pleased with the experience and will recommend and be a returning customer!

What was purchased:

TRS to dual mono splitter 20ft TRS cable 4- 6" patch cables

Testimonial:

What the f*@k do you ever rest? Great "CABLES" and "SERVICE" , I had just ordered a few hours ago and the cables are on their way (on Saturday)? I had bought a few cables on Memorial Day, I'll be damed, they shipped the same day! This is a great USA product (company), and makes truly me regret all of the other cables I have purchased (way too many). I will never buy a store bought cable again, these folks in the USA are for real. They provide a "Really" great product and "FANTASTIC" service, RATTLESNAKE CABLES literally ROCKS!

Thoughts about our Service:

Fantastic, really just fantastic. Except for the USPS, delivery service was just a touch of a let down. Waited days beyond what was hoped for!

What was purchased:

Instrument (snake head) varies weaves, using daily! And now trying out some flex patch cables, along with a gift for a friend!

Rattlesnake holds my pedalboard together! I started with a 6 pack of flex patches and when I expanded my setup I had to go back for some longer pro flex patches. I intend to replace my long cables soon and I’ll be getting them from Hank Donovan & co. as well!

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake is always extremely quick and communicative on a personal level. As someone who orders online frequently I’m impressed with the responsiveness and fast production time, especially considering the quality of the product.

What was purchased:

6 pack of flex patches 4 pro flex patches of different lengths

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
