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 as well as live stages. Weaving allows for a great opportunity to color-code cables as well as adding 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 interfaces, 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-cancelling signal to powered monitors. Additionally, XLR plugs are also found in older speaker cabinets connecting to amplifiers.

How to connect XLR cables?

XLR cables typically have a male and female ends. Microphones require a female XLR plug and the interface accepts the male XLR plug. Depending on the equipment, this may vary. When you purchase a XLR cable from this page, we will connect a single male and a single 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 offer 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, like so many, am a gearhead and spend years sometimes looking for the right equipment. After a long search, I finally finished my cable journey. The Rattlesnake Snake Heads are not only a fantastic performer for signal flow, but the overall construction and weaves are a perfect marriage of form and function. I use them for all my instrument connections and Rattlesnake regular cables for any connections going to my amps. Thank you for a great product!

What Tim L. Said...


Testimonial:

I am currently a Florida resident and have been for the past 8 years, yet I moved from Montana where I had lived for about 15 years. When I heard about Rattlesnake Cables and that they were a MT based company I thought I'd check them out. In the past, I have been using some other HIGH quality brands (I'm sure you are familiar with them) because I can't afford to have problems with cables. I need reliable, HIGH quality cables that work, every time. Turns out that's exactly what Rattlesnake provides, and more. I play for is an accomplished Tribute Act that plays internationally, all over the East Coast of the US, and as far West as Texas, Indiana, Wisconsin, etc. We were looking to redo/replace all the cables in our traveling in-ear rack, as well as replace all of our vocal cables. That is A LOT of cables. I contacted Hank and he replied quickly with options. We nailed down what the band needed and I sent him a large order. The cables came packaged very well, individually wrapped with velcro ties included, and the drawstring bags that each cable comes in have been great because we throw "everything" into the big trunk. We have been over the moon happy with everything we have received from Rattlesnake Cables. The variety of weave colors available makes it easy to determine what is what and who's is who's. Also, they coil up SO nicely and easily that it actually makes set-up and tear down easier and quicker (thank goodness). We like the cables so much we became Endorsed Artists and plan to continue using Rattlesnake for ALL our cabling needs. Thanks Hank and Thanks Rattlesnake!!

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank is AMAZING!! Literally one of the best guys I have dealt with during my 30 yrs in the music business. He continues to go "over and above" with EVERY aspect of service, including communication, products, and knowledge. Thanks Hank!!

What was purchased:

Our band purchased quite a few XLR cables in a variety of lengths and weaves.

What William J. Said...


Testimonial:

I first found out about Rattlesnake cables from another member of our band. I believe he has purchased twice from Rattlesnake. I was impressed with the quality and workmanship. I recently purchased a new piece of gear and was in need of a couple of cables so I decided to place an order with Rattlesnake. I filled out the order ( on a Sunday ) and received and email response that evening. Those of you that read this please think about companies you’ve done business with that actually emailed you back... ON A SUNDAY, I bet the list is short. After batting some emails back and forth, the owner invited me to call him and speak directly in as much as one cable I requested was somewhat out of the norm. Upon telling him what I had and how it was being run he understood exactly why I requested that cable that way. He went as far as to suggest I use a different grade of cable for this particular application knowing signal quality would be better. I was emailed the next day that the cables were done and on the way. When I opened the box I was not disappointed. Hand written note thanking me for my business, each cable packaged separately in a plastic bag and then placed in its own Rattlesnake logo cloth bag. These cables were exactly what I expected. Quality from end to end Customer service here is above and beyond anything I’ve experienced for a very very long time. It makes you feel good when you spend money with someone and they actually care about your purchase. If your wondering whether you should order cables from this company, STOP WONDERING, order your cables. You’ll be glad you did and you can thank me later

Thoughts about our Service:

I purchased a 20' cable from Rattlesnake Cable Company. My Bass guitar sound changed dramatically when using this cable. The mid frequencies and high frequencies sounded more open and balanced. After that I bought one to go between my pedal board and amp. There is something to improving your cabling in your entire rig. Whether its from your guitar/bass to your pedal board and then to your amp or even power cables from your wall to your amp. Dare I say from your amp to your speaker too? Rattlesnake company makes awesome custom cables for your guitar or bass rig. The best bang for the buck in low capacitance cable I could find! Oh I forgot cables between your pedals can effect your sound too....get good ones!
