Along with our guitar cables and cords, so do offer a selection of speaker, XLR / Microphone and patch cables which all use quality plugs from Neutrik, Switchcraft and GLS. We also offer a wide range of signal / utility products from Line Buffers, TRS to Dual Mono Splitters, Junction Boxes and Audio Probes! When tone is important, take a look at we can do for you!



the story of our cable company.

My name is Hank Donovan and I started Rattlesnake Cable Company when I began researching for the guitar cable of my dreams. For years prior I've been involved with electronics ranging from pedal building to instrument repairs and to other various nerd related projects. I always enjoyed working on music-centric projects and thought making a great instrument cable would be something fun and satisfying to pursue. I began ordering various components from plugs to cable to protective weaving, etc. I finally found the combination that met all of my needs. I was really excited about the final product.

As a guitarist myself, I wanted to meet specific requirements of an instrument cable. Obviously, signal was the primary goal. I've owned various "quality" cables and I wanted to surpass the quality of those cables. I've always been a believer of quality in the cable (both in signal as well as durability) so this was going to be a tough task. If you're not too familiar with capacitance in cables, here is a quick simple explanation. Some cables begin to bleed off the high-end frequencies and general signal, especially with longer runs. In simple terms, your tone gets "muddy" and quieter.

The instrument cable itself becomes a capacitor (similar to your tone knob on your guitar or bass), and to address this, we have our Oxygen Free Bare Copper (OFBC) low capacitance cable milled here in the United States to preserve those high-end frequencies. Additionally, I hate cables that tend to be noisy due to poor shielding or worse, cease to work due to the shielding being weak or easily broken. The cables we use have a strong heavily braided copper shielding with 95% coverage. This makes the cable super heavy duty... and quiet! Finally, I wanted strong, quality plugs, Neutrik Pro Grade plugs ended up being the winners. The plugs are great quality and their cable clamp system adds more protection for the cables by securing the solder connections. All of these pieces are what ended up creating Rattlesnake Cables today. When I plugged in my first prototype I was immediately blown away by the clarity and the punch of the signal! I used a protective weaving to help prevent cable binding and I had something I was very happy with - a top notch boutique instrument cable!

Originally, I assembed the cable for myself, but as soon as other musical friends of mine started seeing, hearing and feeling the cables, the requests started coming in for cables... and the company was born. The response has been fantastic and seeing these cables on stage with working musicians is something very special for me!

Rattlesnake Cable Company is based out of beautiful Missoula, Montana where I'm very proud to call my home. What started with a simple idea for me has grown into a family business where my wife and my kids have become involved with the operations (we now have a growing team of amazing individuals). Each cable is assembled and tested and are made "to order". Each cable is play tested after assembly. They're not simply tested through a cable tester for continuity, but played to determine if the tone is 100% there.

We look forward to building your cable!
