Pedal Steel Cable.

Pedal Steel Cable



We're very excited about this line of cable. These cables are ideal for pedal steel players connecting from their pedal steel to the volume pedal. 3' cable typically with straight to right angle Neutrik Nickel plugs (Neutrik Golds are also available). Colors include red, black, sage, dirty tweed, blue, copper and mean green. Pedal Steel Cables are $35 each.

Many pedal steel players might also be interested in our Rattlesnake Line Buffer as well and our Standard Instrument Cable to connect the volume pedal to an amp

Answer
No, our cables are not directional. If you're purchasing a Snake Head, the Snake Head portion should be on the instrument side, but that only is cosmetic. The cable will work fine if plugged in any direction.
Answer
Some of our customers swear by gold contacts. Some of our customers can't hear a difference. Gold does provide a better contact surface, but the signal improvement may be hard to notice. Some of our customers (including myself) just like the cosmetic look of the black shells with gold contacts. If you're in a humid climate and deal with corrosion, gold might be better for you as well.
Answer
When people read that, the first assumption is that the copper is somehow 'air tight'. Nope. OFBC is part of the smelting process where the oxygen molecules are smelted out or removed to a point where it's below .001%. This makes a very pure copper allowing for great conductivity.
Answer
We have a variety of wire mills that we work with. All of the wire mills we work with our in the United States. We take extreme pride that our cable is milled in the United States and hand assembled here in Missoula, Montana.

What Ryan P. Said...


Testimonial:

I'd spent years getting by on cheap cables and finally decided to invest in some quality cables when a fellow pedal steel player turned me onto Rattlesnake. Not only did the Rattlesnake cables significantly improve my tone, they also removed all buzzes and hisses I'd known for years using low end brands. I've now replaced every cable in my entire rig with Rattlesnake cables. There are very few companies who offer products for the pedal steel community; combined with with the world-class quality, I'm a customer for life. Huge thanks to Hank and the entire team at Rattlesnake Cables for providing second to none service and professional quality products!

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake Cable's service is second to none. When making my first purchase, I selected the wrong cable and wanted to adjust my order. The team immediately emailed back at 10 PM at night and helped me get my order corrected.

What was purchased:

Pedal steel 3' cables, speaker cable, patch cables

Bought thes cables, the Rattlesnake Snakehead cables with chrome ends. I’m a bedroom player playing a stray through a Fender 65DRRI. I feel the sound/tone is a little fuller than previous cables. Monster I didn’t like and Planet Waves started to fail and let me down. Shipping was great. I have confidence in the USPS again. And when the owner of a company takes time to communicate with a Joe Smoe customer tells me he’s in it for the long run. I think I bought four 20fts. It’s nice to own quality products. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Scott
