Let me tell you about one of the best days of my LIFE! I have always been a HUGE fan of Rattlesnake Cables since the day a group I was recording came in, and showed me the new cables they had just got. They felt amazing, and they told me they had stood up to all of their shows and everything they had done to that point, and it didn't hurt that it looked good to boot! So after a little research, I ordered my very first cable from them to give it a run, and see how it stood up to the rigors of everyday studio use. To my absolute thrill, it took all the beatings and then some! I still use that cable to this day on every recording that comes thru my studio! So how does this involve my best day ever you ask? Let's just say that from that day forward I had become a bit of a "fanboy" about Rattlesnake Cables. So fast forward a number of years later, and was building a new pedal board for the studio, and I saw on their Instagram that they had started making patch cables. Knowing how great my other cables of theirs had stood the test of time, and not wanting to redo the board every year to replace beat-down cables, I thought it would be worth every penny to get the best available. So I go on their website, select the pack that worked best, and as I was checking out, I saw a new option for pickup, instead of delivery. Well, being extremely blessed that they are located so close, I chose the pickup option to maybe save a couple of bucks. So within hours, Hank Donovan, the owner, and creator of Rattlesnake cables called me personally, to let me know the cables had been made and were ready for pickup. So I went in the following day to pick them up, and I honestly couldn't believe the person to come and meet me at the top of the stairs to hand me my new cables, was Hank himself! I did my best not to fanboy out, but failed miserably as the first words to fall out of my mouth were "It's an honor to meet you"... and only got worse from there. Then Hank offered to give a guided tour of their new building, and I'm pretty sure I blacked out after that because I had died and gone to heaven. Best. Day. EVER! Needless to say, I will use and recommend Rattlesnake cables from now till the day I die. And when it come to re-cabling my recording desk and everything in the studio, I will trust no one, but Rattlesnake cables. Do yourself a favor, invest in things that last, and work as they always should. Rattlesnake cables are the choice for anyone who is serious about their sound. You're welcome.

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 other 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. I finally found the combination that met all of my needs. I was excited about the final product.

As a guitarist myself, I wanted to meet the specific requirements of an instrument cable. Signal was the primary goal. I've owned various "quality" cables, and I wanted to surpass the quality of those cables. I've always believed in quality in the cable (both in signal and durability), so this was going to be a challenging task. 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. If you're not too familiar with capacitance in cables, here is a quick, simple explanation.

The instrument cable itself becomes a capacitor (similar to your tone knob on your guitar or bass). 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'm not too fond of 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. These features make the cable super heavy-duty and quiet! Finally, I wanted solid and quality plugs; Neutrik Pro Grade plugs ended up being the winners. The plugs are of excellent 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 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 pleased with - a top-notch boutique instrument cable! Something that I felt was the best guitar cable for me.

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

Rattlesnake Cable Company is based in beautiful Missoula, Montana, where I'm proud to call my home. What started with a simple idea 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 outstanding individuals). Each cable is assembled and tested throughout the process and is made "to order."

We look forward to building your cable!
