I'm not a fan of TRS Y-Cables. They have a tendency to fail, and you are stuck with the length you get. We get asked about Y-Cables often, and I always recommend a TRS to Dual Mono Splitter!
With a TRS to Dual Mono Splitter, you have maximum durability at the Y connection. It will hold up, where a Y will slowly start to get stressed. Additionally, you have the flexibility of using a variety of cable lengths. You can put long instrument cables or TRS cable, or use Patch cables for the TS or TRS connection, you're not stuck with the set length with this splitter - and since application requirements often change depending on the situation, it's nice to have options.
If you're use a Rickenbacker deluxe instrument with the Rick-O-Sound output jack, this is a great solution (in conjunction with a TRS cable). Or if your instrument uses a TRS OBEL (On-Board Effects Loop) similar to what Jerry Garcia was known to use, this is a great tool as well.
Our TRS splitter uses our powder coated / laser engraved enclosure and use quality Neutrik Stereo and Mono Jacks.
Add a TRS Rattlesnake Cable with this Splitter!

Y cables, by design, cannot handle heavy strain, and the probability of failure is high. That's the number one complaint. The second issue is that you're stuck with whatever length the Y cable is set. As you requirements change, you may need shorter cables from the junction, or a longer cable for the primary TRS or Mono cable. With a TRS to Dual Mono Splitter or Mono to Dual Mono Splitter, you have a solid connection for the junction. You have the flexibility to swap out cables down the road.
You will need a single TRS cable and a pair of Mono cables - either patch cables or instrument cables (depending on the lengths).
No. This is a completely passive device.

Joshua B. - I've never thought of cables as being anything other than utilitarian, however the tone clarity Rattlesnake cables provides has truly been inspiring in my playing. I have nice guitars and amps and an expensive pedal board set-up, but my rig has never... Read More
