XLR Cable.

XLR Cable



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:

I was never convinced that a cable could make a big difference in the tone of my bass. For years I used cables of different brands and qualities, but without paying attention to the details of them. A few months ago I had the opportunity to try a boutique cable and the difference was like night and day. Suddenly my tone had a quality and color that I had not noticed before, so I started looking for the best cables on the market and I came to Rattlesnake. Hank's patience and guidance for his clients is outstanding and his cables are top-notch. Today I sound better than ever thanks to Rattlesnake cables.

Thoughts about our Service:

The customer service is extraordinary, always attentive to customer needs and ready to answer all questions and clarify doubts. Shipping was super fast and the packaging was very good, they even included a thank you note for the purchase!

Purchased some Rattlesnake Cables when they offered a sale as a way to support local businesses and local musicians. I was so impressed with not only the quality of the cable but also the amazing customer service, that I immediately made a follow-up purchase to replace all of my existing cables with Rattlesnakes! Great quality cables and a great local music company, would highly recommend!

Thoughts about our Service:

Not only was shipping immediate, but I received both a hand-written note and a personalized video thanking me for the purchase. Cables came in cool bags that I will definitely save to reuse.

What Duke M. Said...


Testimonial:

I've bought a few instrument cables, so when I need mic cables, I thought of Rattlesnake. I purchased 2 - 20' XLR's and was not disappointed! The same excellent sound and build quality I've seen with their instrument cables. Fantastic! And they ship fast, but best of all, their customer service is phenomenal. Not that I have ever had an issue with Rattlesnake Cables themselves, but when the post office temporarily "lost" an earlier order, they had a replacement on the way the day I contacted them. Happily, the original eventually arrived and I was able to return it to them. Don't expect that level of service from some big 'ole company! Rattlesnake Cables out perform any other cable I have owned in 40 years of electric music. I'll never buy from another company again!

Thoughts about our Service:

Exceptional! They kind of response you only get from a small company with people who care!

What was purchased:

A few Ten and 15 foot instrument cables; two 20' XLR cables
