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.

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 ready 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.

The full spectrum of tone takes on new dimensions. Thanks to Hank and his crew for such a professionally built product and Customer Service like I've never seen!

Thoughts about our Service:

2nd to none!

30' Retro cable and 3' Pedal Steel cable

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

What Mark B. Said...


Testimonial:

Awesome cables, heavy duty to survive the road and a huge improvement to the tone of my pedal steel guitar. The cords are worth every penny and they are all I use for both my guitar effect board and pedal steel set up.

Thoughts about our Service:

Awesome! That is all I can say and I am recommending these guys to all my bandmates- these guys are a hardworking company that is in business to help bands and musicians sound great. All my cords will be purchased from them!

What was purchased:

I purchased the Pedal Steel Patch cord which is the best cord I have found to pass a very clean and high output signal to the amplify and it has eliminated a lot of inference problems I have had. I also purchase two 10 foot guitar cords which I am using for the pedal board- very heavy duty and will survive life on the stage.

Testimonial:

Absolutely blown away by the service, delivery, and follow-through. On that alone I'd totally recommend. So I plug in and there's no creaking, no hiss, that's all I can ask from a cable. Happy camper.

Thoughts about our Service:

Over the top customer service. I wish that was more common. Well done!

What was purchased:

I bought a guitar lead and a speaker cable and the pedal steel cable. Happens to be the length I needed for a board and the right connectors. Look great and sound great.

What Jarrett T. Said...


Testimonial:

If there is a better Instrument cable out there I've never seen it! These are of the finest build quality, function, and form.

Thoughts about our Service:

Top-notch! Clear and concise communication with super fast, shipping. An absolute pleasure to work with.

What was purchased:

Instrument cables, pedal steel cable, patch cable, and I can guarantee I'll be back as my sound setup evolves. I'm addicted to Snake-Weave!

What Tim D. Said...


Testimonial:

As a working musician I keep my instruments and gear organized in "kits". These kits have all the supporting gear for the instrument or instruments I am using in a performance. Dobro, Lap Steel, Pedal Steel all require different pedal boards, stands and sound reinforcement equipment. My cables were an odd assortment of cables that I had acquired over the years. The criteria for cable replacement was "when it failed during a show" it was replaced. This lead to some disastrous cable failures at really bad times. I knew I had to get my cables in order. So I did the research to find the Best Quality Cables, backed by the best company. My conclusion was Rattlesnake Cable Company. Handmade cables made in the Western USA. Now every instrument kit has Rattlesnake Cables. Here is a pro tip: Color code your cables! Got a red guitar , get red cables. To the pedal board and to the amp. Most of the time there is a lot of confusion clearing a stage. People are in a hurry. This is where you loose cables! Black cables get rolled up and carried away accidentally. Get odd matching colors for a particular instrument.

Thoughts about our Service:

The Rattlesnake customer service is outstanding. I asked a simple question via an online order and received an phone call to clarify my question an hour later. Thats real "Western Service"!

What was purchased:

Pedal Board Cables 3' Pedal Steel Cables 10' Cables 20' Cables XLR Mic Cables

What Quinten H. Said...


Testimonial:

I always heard about Rattlesnake Cables and had seen them. I ordered a Purple one and I love it!!! I then ordered a couple of Midnight Purple and a couple of Grey.... all with Rattlesnake ends. Then, I got a couple Speaker Cables. I LOVE these cables. The tone is true and they are durable.... plus, they look really cool. But, the test is in the tone. I’ve noticed no tone loss with these cables. I can trust that when I plug in I’m gonna be happy. Also, the fact that you can message Hank and he is very quick in responding. That, for me, has been icing on the cake with his customer service. Well done!!!! I’ll be ordering more very soon!!!!

Thoughts about our Service:

Stellar. Top notch.

What was purchased:

Rattlesnake Cables... purple, grey, midnight purple Red Speaker Cables Red Steel Gtr Cables that I use for connecting pedals that are not always on my pedal board. They are the perfect length and ends.

Hank and his small staff at Rattlesnake Cable Company have won me over. I will never by a cable from another company ever again. The quality is unrivaled. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. And the attention detail in both cable and the buying process is exactly what you'd expect from a 5 Star company. I even received a quick Thank You video from Hank after purchasing my first custom cable. I play solo acoustic guitar gigs so my signal has to be impeccable. Rattlesnake literally improved my rig with just cables!

Hank and company make the very best cables on the market, hard stop. Without fail, every single purchase I’ve made from Rattlesnake has come with the best in communication and the best turnaround time. The cables themselves should be considered the standard, virtually indestructible and far superior tone. Nothing else even comes close. Do yourself a favor and throw away all your cables, speaker and pedalboard included and replace them now with Rattlesnake Cables. You can thank me later.
