Welcome to Schmitt Custom Audio Cables for the "Serious Listener"

Specializing in Speaker Cables, RCA and Balanced 3 pin XLR Analog Interconnects along with RCA and BNC 75 ohm RG6 Digital cables. Far too many to list.


Music has always been my refuge. I’ve been fascinated with speakers, audio equipment and musical instruments since an adolescent. My mother, a gifted piano player, a grade school that stressed music and choir big time. A large family and everyone had a stereo.  It was great! Add a little mechanical science and I was in heaven.  I've spent many years upgrading speakers and amp cabs, re-wiring and even building guitars as a hobby. A music lover through and through. I just couldn’t justify paying the astronomical prices the market demanded for quality audio cable. It didn’t take much to motivate me into building my own.


Usually when you buy Audio equipment it does not include quality cables. If cables are included you can bet that they are not telling you what your system really sounds like.  The first thing I notice is the upgrade in sound quality. Going from dull and boring, even fatiguing at times to a totally new and enjoyable listening experience. From there I was able to determine what my components actually sounded like without the coloration you get from so many types of manufactured and designer style cables.


FOR THE SERIOUS LISTENER... The "Audiophile" Quality cables are just as important in sound as say, the type of tube a person uses in their audio setup. They all sound different. So I roll cables just as I roll tubes. If you haven’t had a chance to experiment with cables in this fashion you may be very surprised at the differences you hear from the source to pre-amplifier, pre-amplifier to amplifier and amplifier to speakers etc.. Changing any set of cables in that combination changes sound.


The cable world is highly subjective with endless types of wire and connectors. The combination is infinite. They all bring a different nuance in sound. Some more noticeable then others. Neither better or worse at times. Just different.  Some are much more suited for solid state as others for tube. I hesitate to judge a well built cable and lean more to the combination of devices the cable serves.


 Schmitt Custom Audio Cables have effectively bridged the gap for thousands of "Serious Listeners". All cables have a 10 day return policy upon receipt with customer satisfaction always!

Studio & Musicians?

Being fellow guitar enthusiast myself, many of the cables I build integrate well with the pro audio scene. I have mini 3.5 mono and stereo, The 3pin XLR collection and nickel  and gold plated, straight and right angle TS, TRS connectors  in stock. I generally use Mogami W2524 cable for guitar cables with Rean/Neutrik TS connectors. I also have Gotham GAC-1 Ultra Pro and GAC-2 Belden brilliance and solid core silver plated coax cable in stock. Ask me about silver plated guitar cable!  I've made some elaborate types of cables in the past and ordered the parts as needed so sometimes there is a small waiting period before I can have your order built. Please feel free to email me with any requests you may have and I will do my best to accommodate your needs!

Due to the nature of my business most of the cables I build are upon request to your specification from a variety of colored jackets and connectors. By navigating my site you will see many choices along with the difference in cost. I think you will find these charges to be modest. All totals include USPS shipping within the continental United States. All of the cables I sell are built and inspected by myself. I work hard to turn things around in 3 to 5 days. If you need something you do not see please feel free to email me with any and all questions. If your request includes non stocked parts more time will likely be required.
