About

Cordinated - Because boring things can be colorful.

I knit. A lot. Which means I had gathered hoards of yarn and it was sitting, waiting to be used to it's full potential.

I play bass. A lot. Which means I deal with a lot of boring black equipment, which gets tangled and dirty. It reminds me of monster trucks.

One day, while I was probably half asleep, I was struck by a lightening bolt of an idea. Why don't I mash these two objects together? Surely others are tired of a tangled dark mass of connectors. Surely they would like their equipment to match their sound or listening preferences.

So I just did it. (Thanks Nike)

Cordinated exists to promote fun and happiness through typical everyday items. Our products exist because we were bored, we were frustrated and we needed a way to simplify and express our musical selves.

    Hi I'm Juli! Cordinated was my Ah HA! moment back in 2009. I have been making cables and promoting my business ever since then. It's been a fun ride. I love innovation and color. Cordinated brings boring everyday things to life!

FAQ:
WHAT IS A CORDINATED CABLE?
A Cordinated Cable is a mono instrument cable/cord (we use the words cable and cord interchangeably) that is needed for any type of electric instrument. They are used to plug an instrument into most amplification or recording devices. Cordinated instrument cables are our unique and modern take on the vintage cloth cables from the 50s and 60s. They are hand soldered for assurance of a good quality electronic connection and meticulously hand wrapped to make them attractive to play with on stage or at home.

WILL IT WORK WITH MY SON/BOYFRIEND/HUSBAND/NEPHEW/GIRLFRIEND/DAD/ETC's GUITAR/BASS/KEYBOARD/ETC?
YES! If you are buying a Cordinated cable as a gift and do not have experience with electronic instruments, let us assure you that it will work with any Electric Guitar, Electric Bass Guitar, Electric Keyboard or Synthesizer, or any other Electric Instrument that has a 1/4" connector on it. If you are still not sure please convo us, we are both musicians and have a lot of experience with these types of things :) Or send an email to cordinated @ gmail.com.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC AND TOP NOTCH CORDINATED CABLES?

CLASSIC Cordinated Cables are made using industry standard cord stock and 1/4" plugs similar to what can be purchased at your local music store (except much more aesthetically pleasing of course!). They offer the quality that is to be expected from an instrument cable, and are great for regular usage and sound quality. In addition they go beyond what is available from other sources because they are hand soldered and tested by Dan the engineer to lower the potential for loose connections and breakage.

TOP NOTCH Cordinated Cables are our boutique line of cables that offer superior sound quality due to highly shielded and low capacitance cable stock. This super high quality cable stock offers a virtually noise-free sound that is to be expected from a top of the line cable. These are great for studio usage and for the audiophile who appreciates cables that can let their best tone shine through. These cables are hand soldered to Neutrik X-Series 1/4" plugs and each one is tested by Dan the engineer extraordinaire. Dan loves to talk about specs! If you want to know the nitty gritty and nerdy details about our cables he can tell you. Send us a convo or email!

WHAT IS A PATCH CABLE?
A patch cable is the same as an instrument cable but is a much shorter length. These cables are mostly used to chain effects pedals together for a guitar player or in the studio with recording equipment that only needs a short connection. All of our eco patch cables are HOSA brand and are NOT hand soldered. All of our 1ft cables can be used as patch cables and ARE hand soldered. And like all of our cables, they are wrapped in yarn for easy identification. You'll never lose these!

CAN I GET A CUSTOM LENGTH OR COLOR?
Yes! We love custom orders and can make any length of Cordinated Cables in a variety of colors. Please convo us to request a custom cable. We usually operate in this fashion:

Shipping
We ship USPS First Class (under 13 oz), USPS Priority Mail (over 13 oz) or UPS Ground to anywhere in the US (whichever is cheaper to save you money).

Shipping quotes do not include insurance or delivery confirmation - if you'd like any extra service, just let us know in the "Message To Buyer" section during checkout and we'll send you a revised invoice.

If you are purchasing multiple items we can combine shipping. The combined shipping will be calculated as per the listings. If it ends up being too high we will issue a refund via Paypal.

If you need us to hold a cord, as usual, just communicate to us via the convo feature that you need it held and provide us with a day to ship it.

If you live in Chicago proper, we are also open to delivering the cord/cords for a small gas fee. (Nice to meet you!) If you would like this service, send us your address and we can let you know a time and day that we can deliver the cord. Or if you wish, you can come pick up your cords to avoid the shipping fee.

We CAN ship international. Please convo us for a quote and see below.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Insurance is YOUR choice. 99% of our items are shipped First Class International, which does not have an insurance option. This means that if by some reason, your cord does not arrive or gets returned to us (which can happen!) We are not responsible for paying or refunding you. If you'd like to upgrade to Priority Mail, UPS or FedEx just let us know! Yes it is more expensive but it will guarantee that you will receive your cordinated cable in top notch shape.

***Customs, duties, and other taxes are always the buyer's responsibility!!!!***
Refunds and Exchanges

You must pay for shipping the item back to us. We will not refund any payment until we receive the cord.
Additional policies and FAQs
We here at Cordinated try to be very accommodating, if you need any help whatsoever with purchasing, shipping or using your cord, please feel free to send us a message via convo or email cordinated @ gmail.com and we will be happy to help you!
