    I'm getting ready to re-do my pedal board, and I'm wondering what recommendations ya'll have for patch cables. I want to get pancake ends on them so I can maximize the space.

    Looking forward to your answers!!

    www.axekisser.com I have a dozen, give or take between two boards. no problems and very nice to deal with. First order one cable wasn't working and they sent me another before I returned the faulty one. Not top of the line but worth the $

    Not many choices for pre-made stuff. The other choice would be just your typical Hosa patch cables. It would be cheaper to make your own though.

    Hosas are nice and simple. You can get them in packs of 6 (.5') from avalive.com.

    I heard a rumor that Toyroom FX was going to start selling pancake patch cables

    Some pedals have the power jack too close to the input jack for pancakes. :FM

    I bought mine custom-made from Swwee8 in the Builder's emporium. Super-fair prices, quality product, and fast. Ended up costing way less than a solderless kit to do my whole board.

    Thanks! I'm always looking to improve my product and keep the price reasonable. Truly, I think soldered cables are the best and I can provide people with ready made cables that are competitive with those you do yourself.

    My wire is USA made but I've been forced to utilize imported GLS ends for my pancakes because of cost.My instrument cables use USA wire and ends (Switchcraft or GH I can provide Neutrik too)The bottom line is that I've had few problems and I try to make my customer service the difference!

    Thanks for your support!

    :agree Bought a bunch of 6 and 8" Monorail patch cords from Etchwork... Really well made, good price and work a treat.

    Vertexeffects.com makes cables. He uses Mogami cable and switchcraft ends.

    Mega swell dude as well who does incredible work.

    Very hard to beat for the price. He will even hot glue the insides to make them even more robust (many builders would charge extra for this). If you needs pancakes good place to get them. I prefer G&H, but if you are trying to do it on a budget....cables assembled by Etchwork using the GLS pancakes is top of the heap for value. Also if you don't need Pancakes, Lava Mini-soars assembled at $9.99 a pop with GH plugs is a solid deal as well.
