Our XLR cable uses our dual conductor cable milled in the United States. All XLRs use Neutrik Pro-Grade Nickel or Black Shells and are available with weave or no-weave if preferred. Rattlesnake Cable Company XLR cables are great for studio application and live stages. Weaving allows for a great opportunity to color-code cables and adds additional protection. If you're looking for the best XLR cable out there, look no further!

XLR cables come in a variety of pre-set lengths, but if you're interested in a custom XLR cable, please submit a custom cable request!

What is an XLR cable?

XLR stands for "External Line Return" and is typically used for connecting microphones to an interface, mixers, or other types of recording equipment. XLR is also known as a "balanced cable" as well and can be used for a variety of methods of sending a clean, noise-canceling signal to powered monitors. XLR plugs are also found in older speaker cabinets connecting to amplifiers.

How to connect XLR cables?

XLR cables typically have male and female ends. Depending on the equipment, this may vary. Microphones require a female XLR plug, and the interface accepts the male XLR plug. When you purchase an XLR cable from this page, we will connect a single male and a female for the XLR plugs.

How long can an XLR cable be?

200' is the maximum length before noise is introduced. We offer lengths up to 30' with weave, and we can provide longer lengths if you require a longer run. Our longest length with weave is 30' though, but no-weave cables can be longer


  • Dual 20AWG 99.99% BC conductors.
  • Braided copper shield (95% coverage).
  • Cable milled in the United States.
  • Cable hand assembled in Missoula, Montana.
  • SKU: SKU-FA0DDE11

Answer
No. The contacts are the same for either style of Neutrik plugs. This is strictly a cosmetic preference. There is a higher purchase cost for us on the black.
Answer
Absolutely, just fill out a custom build request. It's important to note that the longest length with weave is 30', but we can make longer XLR cables without weave (bare) at any length desired.

Testimonial:

A month or so ago, I received a very classy ad for Rattlesnake gear, so I took a look. I am a 77 year old bass player who loves to play Blues. Over my 62 years performing, I have owned many cables, but the best I have ever purchased are my Rattlesnakes, hand made in the USA. Further, Hank and his staff are cordial and provide excellent advice and incredible personalized service. They handle each order and build as if they would be the owner of that item, and they deliver gear quickly! If you need a lifetime warranteed product, buy A Rattlesnake cable. It will bring you years of loyal performance !!
