Choose between Low Profile Pancake Jack Connectors either end or Straight to Low Profile. 


Omega: your standard orientation, when backs of connectors are together (between two pedals) the cable produces and Omega Shape. Ω


Zeta: This means the connectors always point in opposite directions. Ideal for side to top mounted jack pedals, or indeed on any shorter length. Anything beyond 30cm offers enough flexablity in the cable used to manipulate as you please.

When ordering patch cables you are choosing “visible cable length” this is the length of cable that is visible between each exit of each jack connectors assembly. What this means is the tip to tip length will always be greater than the length you order. It's all to do with accuracy and trimming and a little extra your end. For example, 15cm visible cable (21cm used) produces a Low Profile Pancake Connector Patch cable that is near equal length to most standard industry 6 inch patch cables. The connectors always add additional length. In addition, as you will soon see Practical Patch has set prices for various lengths of Patch Cables. Please do “take advantage” of this if you think long term a 35cm visible cable length cable would be more useful from your experience with 30cm visible cable length cables (30cm visible is near equal in length to of the shelf 12 inch patch cables you have likely tried before)
