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.

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!

What was purchased:

Custom loom with: 25' Standard No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight Nickel to Neutrik Right Angle Nickel 30' Balanced Monitor Cable No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight TRS Gold to Neutrik XLR Male Black Shells 30' Standard No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight Nickel to Neutrik Right Angle Nickel 30' XLR Cable No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik XLR Nickel Shells to Neutrik XLR Nickel Shells A whole bunch of Flex Patch Cables

Working with Rattlesnake Cable Company and Hank Donovan was a great experience. The ordering process and the cables are equally great. The shipping box came with a sticker, Rattlesnake Cable Company notepad with a personal note, a 10% off coupon to https://www.customdistrictpedalboards.com/ and a pamphlet explaining their offerings and information about Hank and his company. Hank also emailed a personal video thanking me for the order. Not many companies do that today. Very professional! I ordered (2) 8" Pro Flex Patch cable in black with G&H Right Angle GGN to G&H Right Angle GGN in an S-Configuration. The cables were received well and looked professionally created with great attention to details. I especially liked the 'Rattlesnake Cable Company' stamped heat shrink wrapped on the plugs. I also needed an XLR cable to go from my Two Notes Torpedo C.A.B. M+ to my Headrush FRFR-112 2000-watt 1x12" Powered Guitar Cabinet. Since I needed the XLR connectors to be oriented in a specific direction, I emailed Hank and sent him some edited photos of the Two Notes and Headrush. After some back and forth about the length of the cable and if I needed cable weave and what color, 2 days later, I had the order. The custom ordered XLR cable came in a cloth bag with the company logo on it. The price is a little more than some other companies, but these cables are worth it since they are from an American company with roots in the guitar world. I highly recommend Hank, Rattlesnake Cable Company and the cables. When I need more cables or other items, I will be back. I am still deciding on the Rattlesnake line buffer and the Tap Tempo...

Thoughts about our Service:

Customer service experience was excellent and will be making other purchases in the furture.

Testimonial:

I was extremely impressed with the quality of the four 12 inch copper pro patch cables for my Coca Cola refurbished pedal board along with the 15 foot copper color cable that is going from my pedal board to my Carr Mercury V hand wired custom amp that is 16 watts with an intuator Also, what I liked about Hank at Rattlesnake Cables is that this was my very first purchase from him, and he gave me a 20% discount. Finally, when I did receive everything in the mail the following week I couldn’t believe in person compared to just looking at pictures over the website that I truly believe that what Hank is making is actually an all around better quality cable compared to Mogami, and anyone else in the cable industry. Already I have talked to my guitar instructor, Wendell Landers who is one of the best guitarist in Houston, Texas that is very well known, and is sponsored by Suhr guitars, has even bought some cables from Hank at Rattlesnake Cables and he even said that the quality is way more better than anything else that he has ever seen from other competitor companies making cables in the last 60 years. Bottom line is that I will be doing more business with Hank at Rattlesnake Cables again in the future and anyone else that I come in contact with that needs need new patch cables, guitar cables or any other kind of cable than I will be turning them onto Hank at Rattlesnake Cables because his quality is just that much more superior than anyone else that I have come across.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank at Rattlesnake Cables is very professional when I emailed him. Also, he called me back quickly and answered all of my questions. Hank's customer service at Rattlesnake Cables is 100% better than anyone that I have come across in along time. Hank at Rattlesnake Cables even sent me a very nice “Thank You” hand written note along with my purchase which I thought was personable and I can tell you that you don’t see that anymore!

What was purchased:

I purchased 4 - 12 inch copper pro patch cables, and a 15 foot copper cable to go from my pedal board to my amp.

Testimonial:

Cables, who would have thought. I've been playing guitar for 40 years now and in the past 10 years I have become obsessed with hand-built boutique tube amps. I spend hours at a time swapping out tubes for that perfect tone, checking each 6v6, el84, 12ax7 etc. for slight differences in highs and lows and I've never thought about the tone loss within my guitar cable until now. I decided to order a Rattlesnake and I can honestly say there is a difference between this and my old cables and would never have thought about it until I sat comparing the two side by side. This cable is like new set of strings bringing out the highs and crisp tones, like an added presence and slight boost in brightness. Thanks for the great customer service and cool looking cables. You guys Rock

Thoughts about our Service:

Awesome friendly customer service, definitely a customer focused company.

What was purchased:

10' Rattlesnake Standard Instrument Cable and a few Flex Patch cables.

What Joe C. Said...


Testimonial:

Late last year I stumbled across Rattlesnake cables, and after watching and reading reviews, I went ahead and purchased 2. What happened after, was a marvellous thing... I found the END ALL for all my cable needs. No more messing around. No more lost cash on overpriced, mass produced cables or dealing un-customer centric service. I dare anyone to find a better cable/service than what Hank and his team at Rattlesnake are providing ... You won’t. Hand/custom made cables with Neutrik connectors or G&H plugs. Top Quality and built to last. Craftsmanship that’s only equaled by their customer service. I’m now 4 cables and 4 patches in... All signal, all smiles... Snakes everywhere! ...Can’t stress enough, how great these guys are. If you’re looking for new cables, and you are reading this... Go ahead and get yourself some. In all seriousness with true honest advice, always remember... NEVER UNDERESTIMATE the importance of your CABLE. It’s crucial. Be connected. Be happy.

Thoughts about our Service:

The best I have ever received. Others out there, could learn a thing or two ...

What was purchased:

2 midnight purple, 2 10ft sage’s, 4 Pro Flex Patchs in copper, blue, red, green... and a Partridge in a pear tree ????
