What is a patch cable?

Patch cables are small cables used to connect a variety of guitar pedals either in a pedal line or on a pedalboard. Pedalboard patch cables are also used as "jumper" cables connecting multiple pedalboards or as jumpers on the input section of some vintage amps like Marshall, Fender, etc.

Depending on your needs, you may need to configure the best patch cables for pedalboard routing; you may need certain types of plugs for the best profile into your pedals. The shape of the plug configuration is vital as well. U-Config (where both plugs are facing the same direction) is perfect for cables connecting to jacks side-by-side. S-Config (where the plugs are facing opposite directions) is great for connecting a pedal with a side jack to a pedal with top-mount jacks.

Typically, how long are patch cables?

The length of patch cables is important to maintain close spacing for your pedals. Our minimum length we can do (as a custom patch Flex Patch cable) is 4", and there is no maximum length. The most popular length is 6" and is the most versatile and compact length. Our Pro Patch has a minimum of 8" due to its thicker cable diameter.

What are the best guitar patch cables?

We feel that our Flex Patch and Pro Patch cables will give you the variety you need with unmatched quality. Our patch cables are all hand soldered and made with quality components. Our GLS Pancakes are a dual lug system pancake plug that is reliable and more durable than standard pancake-style plugs. On our Pro Patch (and can be applied to our Flex Patch) use G&H Right Angle (GGN Plugs), which are high-quality plugs.

If you are using a loop strip to control a variety of pedals, you may want to explore our G&H Stubby Straight plugs that will work when strip jacks are close together.

We also build TRS Patch Cable as a custom request that uses GLS TRS Pancakes.

Where is your patch cables manufactured?

Our Flex Patch cable and Pro Patch Cables are made in the US cable milled to our custom specifications and hand-assembled here in Missoula, Montana. Our Pro Patch cable is the same cable as our Standard and Snake Head instrument cable. This is the highest quality cable we offer. Our Flex Patch is a great cable but has a smaller diameter and spiral copper shield to give them a bit more flexibility compared to our Pro Patch.

Simply the best. Finest quality product at a non-premium price and direct customer service from the owner of the company. Business the way it should be done. Apple, Google and AT&T take note.

I was looking for a rather long cable to run from my pedal board to my amp. I was, obviously, concerned about tone loss, but needed to relocate my amp. Hank was very responsive to my questions, and guiding me in what I am trying to accomplish. His cables are fantastic, and very durable. In the end, he gave me a cable that works for exactly what I need. As a result, I've purchased other cables and a tester from Rattlesnake Cable Company. I highly recommend them!
