Answer
No. This should be only used with powered monitors. These cables are designed to pass 'signal' not power. If you're requiring a cable to be between a power amp and an unpowered monitor or speaker, you should be using speaker cables.

Testimonial:

It is difficult these days to feel good about anything you purchase. Many companies give you the impression they really care about their product; only to disappoint you in the process. Rattlesnake is a unique company in that they have made the simple purchase of a guitar cable; a great experience. Hat’s off to Hank and his crew for their incredible attention to detail. Incredible customer service, and more importantly, a product that reflects their best practices. Worth the money.

Thoughts about our Service:

Excellent.

What James T. Said...


Testimonial:

I bought a couple of Rattlesnake Instrument Cables in Ash weave after losing my longtime favorite cables from another premium manufacturer. Braided cables can be hit or miss for me. Sometimes they bunch up in weird ways and won’t lay flat. Or they’re too stiff for instrument use. But the Rattlesnake weave is perfect. It has an unusually coarse texture. But it lays flat, coils easily (and properly), and is flexible enough. The plug connections are reinforced with stiff rubber. And I like that the outer jackets won’t inadvertently spin open. The rubber obstructs access to the solder joints. But with such heavy duty construction, can’t foresee the connections being severed in any scenario. The Ash color is like a sandy gray. It looks gray straight on. But has a hint of brown when seen at an angle. It’s more interesting and distinguishable than plain black. But subdued enough to not be visually distracting on stage. There are two basic philosophies on instrument cable audio quality. Some cables go for sonic transparency. Others deliberately load the signal down to roll off some highs with a resonant peak at an assumed sweet spot. The Rattlesnakes are on the transparent end of the spectrum. The guitar comes through sounding clear like itself. I appreciate that Rattlesnake company lists the capacitance and shielding specs instead of printing up fancy packaging with meaningless marketing catch phrases. The capacitance, shielding, and build quality are all that really matter in cables. Everything else is B.S. Overall, these are my new favorites. I’ll go to Rattlesnake for my future cable needs

Thoughts about our Service:

Perfect. Fast service. No problems.

2 instrument cables in Ash weave

Thoughts about our Service:

Customer service was exceptional, to get a video thank you just an hour or so after placing my order was impressive. I may be incorporating that into my own business. Ordered Saturday morning, had the cable in hand two days later.

What was purchased:

Purple 15' guitar cable, straight and right angle.

What Sean F. Said...


Testimonial:

About seven years ago I got my first Rattlesnake instrument cable and I’ve never looked back since then. They are the only cables I’ll ever need! I exclusively use the instrument, patch, speaker, and XLR cables for all of my LIVE sound and performance rigs. I have also sold these quality products at my shop, Guitarley’s Customer Guitar & Repair, to all of my customers! These truly are the best cables and Hank and his team offer the best service! I’m a lifer for sure.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank has always taken excellent care of me and goes above and beyond my expectations as a happy customer.

What was purchased:

Instruments cables, patch cables, speaker cables, XLR cables, and Line Buffer pedal.

What John S. Said...


Testimonial:

The order experience was great. My order showed up quickly. When I opened the box I saw the instrument cables were a nice reusable cloth bag. I got the rattlesnake weave and they look awesome. I tried using the cables out and they feel like a really high quality cable They're nice a flexible but it looks like the ends will last. Plugged it in and there's no obvious hums of any kind. I live in a pretty old house with old electrical, and every weak link in the chain magnifies an issue pretty easily. Even my Mogami cable has more hum than this. The guitars and amps I tried all sounded great. No complaints based on this first impression. Would definitely buy more.

Thoughts about our Service:

Great! Prompt emails from the company informing me about the status. A personal message from Hank was a nice touch.

What was purchased:

2 Rattlesnake weave (one 15' TRS, one 10' standard), and 2 patch cables.

Hands down the best cables around. I purchased both instrument cables and XLR cables (all in my favorite Sidewinder Black weave) and have been extremely happy with the cables and the attention to detail from Hank and the entire Rattlesnake Cables team.

This has got to be one of the best cables I have ever bought! It's construction is sturdy, and the connection are never faulty. I've played a few shows with it now and other artists are always asking about it. It's really great and the price is just right for the quality.
