Rattlesnake Line Buffer

The Rattlesnake line buffer is an OpAmp based line buffer. There is an on/off true bypass toggle switch and a discreet/subtle LED indicator. All jacks and switches are mounted on one side of the unit for maximum options for pedalboard placement. The enclosure is a small 3 5/8" x 1 1/2" enclosure with a black matte powder coat with a laser etched logo.

We wanted to develop a Line Buffer with a toggle on/off feature for easy testing while determining placement on your pedal line.

Components include quality Xicon metal film resistors, Texas Instruments OpAmp, PCB boards are manufactured in the United States, and using quality Neutrik jacks. All components are soldered and assembled by hand here in Missoula, Montana.

  • 22 AWG Hook-up wires
  • US Manufactured circuit board (PCB)
  • Texas Instruments TL072 OpAmp
  • High input impedance
  • Low output impedance (1K ohm)
  • 3PDT true bypass toggle switch
  • Matte black powdercoated enclosure

Answer
A buffer is to help restore frequency loss due to cable capacitance. As your cables lengths add up from guitar to board and board to amp, you may experience some high frequency loss in the chain. By adding a buffer, those frequencies are restored.
Answer
Typically, the buffer should be the first item after the instrument. But some users will try to find an ideal location within their pedal chain depending on what they prefer.
Answer
Yes, you'll need to power with a standard 9V DC barrel (like Boss or OneSpot power supply). You can also power this with 12V DC.
Answer
Some players like to play with the placement of the buffer in the chain. You can easily bypass the buffer while you find the sweet spot.
Answer
Some players do not like how certain fuzz pedals sound with a buffer before them. Some players like the 'bad sound'. You'll need to determine if signal is altered in a way that you don't like and position the buffer accordingly. Typically, the buffer should be first, but does not have to be.

What Michael D. Said...


Testimonial:

These cables are solid as hell! Real pro quality. The super beefy ends they use seem like they could take a beating, and they have multiple options. Awesome use of shrink wrap as well, gong over the jack housing and the cable ensuring no moisture is getting into the housing. They offer a cable that has the iconic rattlesnake wrap end about a foot before the end of the cable so if you thread your cable through your strap button so you don't get the weave against the finish on your guitar. (At least that's how i'm using mine). Hank has got his poop in a group and you'll see when you order yours. Every cable comes in a nice cloth bag and any junction boxes or buffers come in nice boxes too.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank was very easy to work with. He usually messeged me within 5 minutes of an inquiry. I even fudged my order and he fixed it in a matter of minutes. My order arrived very quick as well.

What was purchased:

I have owned two instrument cables for a couple years and I would put them up against any rival out there. My most recent purchase included patch cables, a couple speaker cables, more instrument cables, and some junction boxes. (Would have order 2 buffer but they weren't in stock)

What Evan S. Said...


Testimonial:

I could go over how everything I've used, from the instrument cables (don't sleep on the snake head), speaker cable, patches, and line buffer (AMAZING) have been everything from solidly constructed, top tier quality, and snazzy to boot. That said, I spent a week halfway across the country and was in a shop, and sure enough, they were carrying Rattlesnake too. It's not just me - the cat's out of the bag. You want these cables. The amount of customization not only is awesome to have, but just the ability really made me reconsider my board layout and helps not only with efficiency but also eliminates one more step in ensuring you're getting the tone you want out there. Did I say anything about the best customer service I've experienced in the industry? Guess I did now.

Thoughts about our Service:

Above and beyond any expectations.

What was purchased:

Instrument cables, patches, speaker cables, line buffer

What Roger C. Said...


Testimonial:

I am astounded at the quality of Rattlesnake cables! I have been a pro or semi pro musician all of my life, and also operate my own personal recording studio. I have also done sound, worked for years in two of the nation's key music stores (the famed Lipham Music in Gainesville, FL, and the original Guitar Center on Van Ness in SF), worked stage security, and also been around the technical side of the music business on and off my whole life. In that entire time I have never before even *seen* cabling of this quality. I'm not sure what their cables' sheathing is made of, but it is obviously of the highest possible quality, and eminently cool! These are forever cables! They are also sonically ideal and *solidly* constructed, conveying and achieving utter reliability. I have bins and bins of cabling of every kind, many of which have broken at the plugs and even in the cable path, and I sincerely doubt these cables will ever become unreliable unless you use them for towing elephant trailers (and maybe not even then). I am a permanent customer of Rattlesnake products, and look forward to trying their line buffer as well. Even their packaging is impressive as heck! I hope they come out with a direct box!

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake's head honcho Hank personally exchanged a few emails and did one phone call with me (after hours)! He was extremely helpful and is obviously dedicated to the best of service as well as product. I will upload some pics in the next day or so when I'm not sweaty and grimy from working in the studio.

What was purchased:

I bought 2ea (two each) short XLR cables, 1ea short instrument cable, and 1ea 10' instrument cable.

What Paul N. Said...


Testimonial:

I found out about Rattlesnake cables hunting around for some info on Gearpage for my Marshall. I started digging for more info on Rattlesnake Cables after reading a post about the company. I read many reviews and watched a few YouTube videos being you just never know these days with everyone trying to make a fast dollar selling garbage product.. I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger .. BULLSEYE!!!!! Everything you're reading in these testimonials/reviews are spot on! These cables are truly Pro Grade! The Craftsmanship and attention to detail are truly what the "Made in the U. S. A" should be known for. 100% Great buying experience in purchasing Hank's product and I'm sold on these cables. They're Awesome! Buy you a couple you will not regret it. Top-Notch Quality Cables, Presentation upon receiving was outstanding, and fast shipping! Totally Legit I even received an email with Hank thanking me personally in a video. He's a great guy and deserves his product to be a mainstay alongside and in front any supposed "Pro Grade Cable!" No Snake oil with Rattlesnake Cable Co. they're the Real Deal man!! Once you receive them you'll understand!! Thanks again, Cajun Rattlesnake Cables Rock!! \m/(#.#)\m/

I’m a lifer for sure.

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

Thoughts about our Service:

My wife was buying me patch cords for Christmas and Rattlesnake asked her to send a pic of my pedal board so they could get her the correct custom lengths.

What was purchased:

Instrument cables (3), lots of patch cords, a buffer and a t-shirt.
