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 pedalboard 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 that are side by side. S-Config (where the plugs are facing in opposite direction) is great for connecting a pedal with a side jack to a pedal that has 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 the quality that is unmatched. Our patch cables are all hand soldered and made with quality components. Our GLS Pancakes are a dual lug system pancake plug that is very reliable and more durable than typical 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 use 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.

So GOOOD!! I purchased a 20 foot seafoam gold end beginning of lockdown, and the tonal improvement was literally WIDE EYED WOW! Love the heavy duty, and wayyy quieter (like microphonically much quieter than a fatsoflex even and those were my live "quiet" cord standard). So,during live stage (lour volume) use, I was using a big name $$$ cable. The Rattlesnake Seafoam Snake Head gold ends direct to Mesa Mark 4 (a noisy higher gain amp) dethroned that. Really big difference. Quieter and just overall clearer and better sounding, straight to amp, secret weapon! So I decided to do my whole pedalboard in Mean Green gold ends. The improvement again, in clarity and just bigger overall sound, hard to describe. So much worth the $$$ that I'm measuring out all my fx cables, dozen or so amp sends from my board and any other signal cables flowing through my rig. Mean Green of course. *I'd like to mentions, the turnaround time, was ONE DAY from order to ship!!! NO himmmhawwing or excuses. I emailed an order for 10 custom cables Thursday. An hour or so later Hank had already helped me further refine my order for my board exactly, and it was completed and shipped Friday. Hank also made me a personalized thank you video. Model business. Perfect service. The cables are SO much better than my hodgepodge, spaghetti bowl of mixed "quality brands I won't name. No need. They're all getting sold and like I said, a dozen amp or more cables from board (10-20 footers there), some fx cables, rack cables and some others are on the list to order now. I'd absolutely recommend these wires to anyone looking to upgrade their guitar signal chain. Without hesitation and without buying into internet snakeoil, BUY a Rattlesnake guitar cable and see for starters HOW much better they sound. SO good!! THOUGHTS ABOUT OUR SERVICE: Amazing. Top notch!! I'll also give a shout in facebook and ig! WHAT WAS PURCHASED: 20' Standard in Retro Sea Foam with Neutrik Right Angle Gold to Neutrik Straight Gold Snake heads Pedalboard order: 10 cables, 5 different sizes
