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 strips), 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.

What Jimi P. Said...


Testimonial:

Many years ago now I met Hank Donovan on the guitar forums on Farcebook. he was always an ace dude, and when I found out about his product, I was intrigued. As a professional musician, I really wanted to check it out, but the higher price kept me at bay... a false economy triggered by stupidity. recently, Rattlesnake was having a sale, so I decided to try one. it was a class act all the way as an experience, including some unexpected perks like messages to let me know my cable was in process, and even a video from hank thanking me for my purchase. it arrived a couple days later in a nice hemp stash bag, and MAN! this sucker is INDESTRUCTABLE. even my 400 lb ass standing on the thing won't crush it's protective sheathing. the ends are SOLID and perfectly protected with shrink wrap. the bare end for the guitar is a great touch, as its way more flexible than the sheathed part of the cable. tonally it's very clear sounding, with a nice phase alignment.... ie, the bass/mids/trebs all seem equal and balanced which can be a hat trick with any cable... often they suck highs or lose lows. this thing sounds great. every aspect of the deal was pretty sweet. the cable may have SEEMED expensive, BUT IN REALITY it's gonna outlast every other cable I've ever owned, I can tell already... hell, I paid more for a monster cable in the past that never made it 10 years before screwing up. I've gone thru probably a thousand dollars of cables over the last couple decades... but this cable will likely last me MY last couple decades. I chose the rattlesnake cover personally, cuz it was so dang cool looking but they have all kinds of other covers you can choose. factor in the custom shop aspect where you can choose your options, and this may well be the finest cable monger on the entire earth. I'm NOT kidding. ~jimi photon, dime-store rockstar and fuzzbox maven

Thoughts about our Service:

off the hook. I never expected to be HAPPY spending 65 bux for a cable! but I am. ;)

What was purchased:

I got the rattlesnake cable with the uncovered end, straight on amp end, angled on guitar end with the rattlesnake cover which has a beautiful diamondback finish.

What Don D. Said...


Testimonial:

I've made multiple purchases from Rattlesnake and shipping has always been fast. Great quality at a reasonable price. Even the variety of colors are interesting. I'm not sure what more I could hope for. Definitely recommended.

Thoughts about our Service:

Getting a custom cable fast is great, but the hand written thank you I got with each purchase put things over the top. That little touch made me feel great about doing business with Rattlesnake Cable Company.

What was purchased:

Various 20 foot instrument cables, all with the "Snake Head" end. That gives a little added flexibility for plugging the cable into my guitars. Love the concept.

What Eric H. Said...


Testimonial:

I had a great experience talking with Hank at Rattlesnake. The ad came up on my Facebook feed, along with another cable company out of Nashville. I asked them both the same question. Hank replied in a very diplomatic way about my inquiry. So, I sent an e-mail leaving my phone number, asking if he would leave me a text. I wanted to talk about the product and my guitars..etc. He called me that day, and I was not expecting that... So, I returned the call, and he took the time to answer my questions. Very cool. I really like the human touch in transactions. Here was a small company in Montana wanting to deliver a great product in a very down-home way.. I was sold...Sounds kinda old fashioned, I suppose, but a lot of folks like me, especially artists, really appreciate that touch. Nice job, Hank, and everyone else at Rattlesnake. The one big irony is I have a fear of snakes, though I love a good snake story!...this was mine.. Eric, Bend, Or.

Thoughts about our Service:

My experience was very pleasant. Hank took the time and was very patient in answering my questions. I told him that there was no rush, but within a week, I had my order. He even let me know the day that it was shipped. Funny, I thought of a couple of questions a few days later about my cables, but I decided to wait until I got my order. I didn't want him to think that I was another crazy guitar player - Eric

What was purchased:

Let's see; I bought two 15ft, guitar cables in a dark purple, and 5 flex patch cables for my effects.

What Pete T. Said...


Testimonial:

I ordered and promptly received two guitar cables with weave covering, they are of high quality and look great. I especially like the Snake Head ends for the guitar/strap wraparound flexibility when plugging in.

Thoughts about our Service:

The customer service was top-notch, upon ordering I received a thank you note and a personalized video that the cables were being built and readied for shipping. Upon receipt of the package, which was within 2-3 days from ordering, I was impressed with the package materials included and one more personalized thank you note.

What was purchased:

I purchased one standard cable in copper tweed; and one with a Snake Head in the great-looking midnight purple.

Frustrated with low quality cables, I was suggested Rattlesnake by my brother, and wow, this is a great cable. Before I even plugged it in, the quality was apparent. The weaving is awesome, and I'm not at all concerned the plug will start to separate from the cable (probably my main issue with other cables). Plus, with the Snake Head, I have total peace of mind that my guitar's finish is safe from any possible, what I call, "cable rash" abrasion. Top notch customer service from my first visit to the website, through the unboxing of my new cable. I was able to chat on the website to instantly learn more and decide which cable was right for me. The founder, Hank, sent a personal "thank you" video, which was greatly appreciated, and the free swag items in the package were a cool touch.
