Divine hand assembles every cable himself with the highest quality materials available, including low capacitance 20 AWG pure copper stranded center conductor, thick, heavy-duty PVC jackets and silver solder. These features ensure a low-noise, reliable product guaranteeing the best tone available. Beyond the manufacturing of these custom and handmade cables, Divine Noise also provides full service repairs including maintenance for both guitars and amplifiers.

Technician and engineer Gil Divine has established an acclaimed customer base that includes Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams, the National, The White Stripes, Spoon, Cat Power, the Jesus Lizard, Super Furry Animals, Tortoise, ...And you will know us by the trail of dead, among others. Divine has worked as a touring guitar technician for over a decade and his experience on the road has led him to reconsider the design and maintenance of both the Divine Noise cables and his overall repair philosophy.

Beyond the straight cable, Divine Noise offers a line of Curly Cables made from the same components as its straight counterpart. A new line of premium color cables made possible by Tech Flex has just been added to the Divine Noise roster. Divine Noise also offers a variety of custom cable options.
