the story.

My name is Hank Donovan and I started Rattlesnake Cable Company when I began researching for the 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 projects. I always enjoyed working on music related projects and thought making a great 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, I wanted to achieve certain goals. 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 and signal, especially with longer runs.

The cable itself becomes a capacitor, and to address this, we have our Oxygen Free Bare Copper (OFBC) low capacitance cable manufactured here in the United States to preserve that high end. Additionally, I hated cables that tend to be noisy or worse, cease to work due to the shielding being weak or easily broken. The cables we use have a strong heavy braided shielding with 95% coverage. This makes the cable super heavy duty... and quiet! Finally, I wanted strong, quality plugs, Neutrik 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, punch of the signal! I used a protective weaving to help prevent cable binding and I had something I was very happy with!

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. Each cable is assembled and tested by myself and are made "to order". Each cable is tested through a Fender Jazzmaster through a Matchless Amp for final testing after assembly. They're not simply tested through a cable tester, but played to determine if the tone is 100% there.

I look forward to building your cable!
