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

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 Patrick J. Said...


Testimonial:

I bought my first Rattlenake cable about 5 years ago, and it severed me so well that I have exclusively used them since. I probably have a dozen different cables by now, and I just love them. Obviously, they do what they’re intended to do—carry the audio signal from your guitar to your amp. But they are also tough as nails. I’ve never had a single issue, and I recommend them to everyone. Plus, Hank and company have great customer service.

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake is so fast and responsive. I just love them.

What was purchased:

Various snake bite cables, standard cables, and flex patch cables.

What George L. Said...


Testimonial:

Superior products with unmatched service! Rattlesnake is, and will remain my "go to" cable supplier.

Thoughts about our Service:

Outstanding products. Communication is always prompt. Custom requests are processed and shipped quicker than other suppliers turn off the shelf products. With dozens of cables purchased, I have never had a problem with product quality, transaction ease, nor shipping speed. My business with Hank has been flawless!

What was purchased:

Standard, Snakehead, TRS, Speaker, Flex Patch, Pro Patch, and multiples of all the aforementioned cables.

Testimonial:

Have you ever wondered what happens when you give an expensive guitar cable to a class of 8th grade age wannabe rock stars learning to play electric guitar? It either winds up misplaced, misused or completely broken. I have had other brands cables used to lasso another student, used as a tarzan swing, used as door stops and sometimes used to connect a guitar to an amp. Needless to say some cables don't hold up more than one or two weeks of use and abuse. That is until I tried the Rattlesnake brand of cables. First they are really cool looking and neat to an 8th grade mind. Most importantly they are durable and can withstand the constant abuse that a 13 year old rock guitar student can dish out. I cannot recommend them any higher than that! They are still in use and have beat all of my current brands (Monster, Planet Waves and Mogami) hands down. I am slowly replacing my entire stock of instrument, speaker, and mic cables with Rattlesnake brand cables at our Academy of Fine Arts located in Plano Texas.

Thoughts about our Service:

Excellent personalized service throughout the purchase process!

What was purchased:

Standard, Snake head, and Neutrik Instrument cables and Flex patch cables

What Craig C. Said...


Testimonial:

I redid my entire rig with Rattlesnake cables and I have to say, I am in love with these cables. I used to have a slight hiss/him in my rig (I run a lot of pedals probably 12-15), but when I switched to the Rattlesnake cables, I no longer had any hiss/noise issues whatsoever. The flex patch cables also have a very low profile which helps me squeeze as much as possible onto my board. Best cables I've ever owned, and doesn't hurt that they look great too.

Thoughts about our Service:

Delivery was insanely fast, great communication. I will definitely be lifelong customer. Thanks Hank!

What was purchased:

Standard instrument cables, and flex patch cables.

What Roger D. Said...


Testimonial:

Rattlesnake cables are awesome and Hank is a great guy. When I first discovered them, I wasn't really sure what to get or what would be the best for my modest home pedal board. Hank answered all my questions and steered me in the right direction. Hank is very approachable and will help you out.

Thoughts about our Service:

I have had nothing but great customer service with Rattlesnake, Hank gets your order out to very quickly, especially considering they're custom built for each customer.

What was purchased:

Flex patch cables, instrument cables.

What Fat Foot E. Said...


Testimonial:

Bouncing around with various random cables over the years I decided to give Rattlesnake cables a try after hearing the Guitar Knobs podcast AND seeing so many folks at Summer NAMM have Hank'c creations and I haven't been disappointed since. The outer flex makes tangles disappear and the high quality cable with low capacitance breaths new life into my signal chain.

Thoughts about our Service:

Super Awesome!

What was purchased:

20 ft cable - saving to replace ALL my cables!

What Brent S. Said...


Testimonial:

I have both instrument and patch cables, and the quality of the workmanship is outstanding. The wrap of the instrument cables is aptly named Rattlesnake, since it has the texture and durability you would expect from a reptile living in the desert - super tough. The patch cables are what you hope for, with solid connectors, and flexible cabling, pretty much bombproof, in my opinion.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank was my contact, and it was a pleasure.

What was purchased:

3 instrument cables, at least 6 patch cables, which I won, thanks. I do tell my friends they are great.
