Cablesmiths was born out of a desire to provide guitar players a new and intuitive online ordering process to design and customise every single aspect of a guitar cable to meet their specific needs.
We embarked on a mission to develop our Guitar Cable Customiser app that allows customisation of cable brand, cable length, connectors and accessories with a real time what you see is what you get dynamic image to get an accurate representation of what will arrive in the mail. As standard silver solder is used for all guitar cable terminations!
Let’s go through the various sections of the app!
The first step is to select your preferred professional guitar cable brand. See our blog article Guitar Cable Capacitance for guitar cables with lowest to highest capacitance to suit your application. You can also click the cable specifications under the dynamic image for more information on cable specs.
Once you have chosen the brand, select the cable type from the available options. Some brands such as Sommer will have multiple options.
All cable brands have black as standard with colour options available for Canare and Sommer.
The last step is to select your cable length to suit your requirements. See our blog article on Guitar Cable Capacitance to learn more about the effect of cable length on tone.
Next up are two sections for you to select Connector A and then Connector B. Here you will find a vast array of leading guitar cable connectors from Neutrik, Switchcraft, Amphenol and Hicon to suit your needs. From silent plugs to right angle plugs and pancake plugs for pedalboards we have it all in this section. Any combination can be selected for Connector A and Connector B.
Boot Colour (Neutrik Only)
For colour coding or to add extra style to your guitar cable, ten boot colours are available to add to any Neutrik guitar cable connector. These match particularly well with Canare cable colours or some Techflex braided sleeving colours when you want the same colour throughout the whole cable.
Custom Heatshrink Logos and Text
Upload a Custom Logo
Our advanced heatshrink printing capabilities mean you can upload your high resolution jpg or png logo file or other design to be printed using a horizontal orientation on the available heatshrink colour and ink options for installation extending from the connector boot, except for Sommer LLX that will installed further along the cable.
Use Custom Text
This option can be used when you want specific text on the heatshrink rather than a designed logo. You can select a horizontal or vertical orientation for the text noting vertical orientation will result in a smaller font size.
Imprint Ink and Heatshrink Colour
Select your choice of high quality resin ink colour to print your custom logo or text. Choosing an ink colour presents you the heatshrink colour options that are available to print on.
Braided Sleeve and Cable Tie Options
Braided Sleeving Colour
Select your choice of 27 high quality Techflex Braided Sleeving designs to fit on your guitar cable. Techflex is great for not only protecting your cable but also striking visual aesthetics that can be optimised further with Neutrik colour boots and matching cable tie colour.
The last step in the process is to select one our long life Rip-Lock CableWraps that are available in 10 colours to suit your preferences and cable aesthetics.
