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.

Testimonial:

I am flat out amazed at the clarity and detail of these cables. I now realize these cables are an important part of the guitar -amp signal. These cables are a Boutique circuit unto themselves.

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.

What Steve G. Said...


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...

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!
