XLR Cable.

XLR Cable



Due to manufacturing supply chain issues, our custom Rattlesnake Dual Conductor (XLR) cable is delayed from our US wire mill. We will be substituting XLRs with another US milled cable that closely matches our specifications - BestTronic CA-0351OFHC. Hopefully, next month we will have this cable type completed.

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.

What Jeff F. Said...


Testimonial:

I started using Rattlesnake cables a couple of years ago when I made the switch to amp modelers. The first thing that struck me regarding the quality was the physical feel and durability. They get tossed about, packed and un-packed quite frequently and hold up better than any cable I've ever used. As to the sound quality, well, I'm not an audio engineer. But I can tell you I never experience any inexplicable hum or disturbance in my signal chain. Whether from the instrument lines or the speaker cables running to my FRFR's. The custom options are great as they are willing to work with you to achieve whatever the application may be. I'm in the process of replacing every cable I use throughout my rig with Rattlesnake cables. The customer service is top notch and in my experience, the delivery turnaround has been lightning quick. In every instance, I had my cables within days of ordering, even with some custom options. I'm a Rattlesnake customer for life.

Thoughts about our Service:

Fantastic to say the least. The product arrives expertly packaged and the reusable cloth drawstring bags come in handy. An amazing U.S. based company that makes every effort to exceed customer expectations.

What was purchased:

XLR, TRS, and instrument cables.

What Peter H. Said...


Testimonial:

For the last several years I had been partial to Mogami cables for a top of the line cable until I recently discovered this awesome company from right here in the United States. Apart from the materials used, attention to detail with both the appearance and durability I was astounded by the customer service. Hank is the best and he'll make you feel like a valued customer.

Thoughts about our Service:

I was astounded that I received a personalized video from Hank himself when he had finished making my cables. He let me know that my specific request had been completed and that they were on their way. He even let me know that if there were any issues with anything he would personally fix them.

What was purchased:

I am thrilled with all of the cables I recently purchased. I picked up an XLR cable, a standard instrument cable and a snake head cable. I asked about Hank building me a "Y" cable for my effects loop and he recommended that I pick up a TRS splitter box instead with a TRS cable and 2 mono cables. I'm really happy he talked me into making that purchase because I know I'm getting a better tone and the durability will last for years and years to come!!

Testimonial:

I first noticed a friend of mine using Rattlesnake cables when we were doing a local show together - so I decided to buy a couple for my live set up (2 instrument, 1 mic cable). Since then, I have replaced every cable in my live rig (instruments, pedal board patch, mics) - as well as my home recording set up (monitors, pre-amp to mic, etc.). Absolutely fantastic products for any application.

Thoughts about our Service:

Above and beyond! I once ordered a set of cables that ended up being too short; when I notified the team, they updated my new order and got the shipment out straight away, rather than waiting for me to ship the incorrect product back. Amazing customer service, response times and great overall experience. Great team to work with - I wouldn't go anywhere else. Keep up the good work.

What was purchased:

2 Instrument, 3 Mic, 2 Studio Monitor (XLR- 1/4"), 6 patch. Just getting started.

What Rik E. Said...


Testimonial:

Hank and his team helped me reconfigure my pedalboard and designed a custom loom to get three signal paths to my mixer. What a difference! It just makes me feel much more relaxed and able to create. What I wasn't expecting is the overall improvement in tone! I was actually blown away when I first powered everything up and plugged in my Telecaster. A whole bunch elusive hum and noise are now resolved, and my instruments sound rich and vibrant. Thank you Rattlesnake Cable Company!

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank responded to my custom build request within a couple hours with a phone call and helped me understand how they could design a solution for me. They built the custom loom and shipped it the same day. I received the order before I was even ready for it. Hank followed up with a custom video thanking me for my order. Rattlesnake Cable Company provides GREAT customer service!

What was purchased:

Custom loom with: 25' Standard No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight Nickel to Neutrik Right Angle Nickel 30' Balanced Monitor Cable No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight TRS Gold to Neutrik XLR Male Black Shells 30' Standard No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight Nickel to Neutrik Right Angle Nickel 30' XLR Cable No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik XLR Nickel Shells to Neutrik XLR Nickel Shells A whole bunch of Flex Patch Cables

What Eric G. Said...


Testimonial:

I absolutely love my cables. I’ve been using a blue weave cable practically once a week over the course of 5 years and it’s never once given me a reason to question it. I recently upgraded all of my instrument cables to Rattlesnake and I couldn’t be happier with them. They’re built like tanks and look great. I know it’s hard sometimes to get overly excited about cables, but at the same time it’s one part of your rig that you just want to work right each time. I stand by my Rattlesnake cables and Hank is also such a great dude who is an active member of the community. Be sure to get your hands on his cables!

Thoughts about our Service:

It was fantastic, I placed an order for 6 cables and I had them literally in two days from the other side of the country, can’t beat that.

Super durable, carefully constructed cables that not only look cool, but will also hold up through the rigors of all gigging situations. Definitely my first recommendation and personal choice!

Rattlesnake Cables are tough and durable and carry beautiful big signals to my amps. I love the colors and patterns in the shell weave, but their base-line quality build carries the weight, so to speak. The company is awesome to deal with, too.
