Standard Rattlesnake Instrument Cable.

Standard Rattlesnake Instrument Cable



The Rattlesnake Standard Instrument Cable comes in 10', 15' and 20' lengths. Each cable can have straight, right angle or a mix of Neutrik Nickel plugs (Neutrik Golds are also available). Colors include red, black, sage, dirty tweed, blue, copper and mean green. Each cable is fully wrapped in heat and abrasion resistant outer sleeving from plug end to plug end.

Our Standard Instrument Cable is a great cable to run between your pedalboard and amp, or between your guitar / bass and pedalboard or amp. If you're concerned about the finish of your instrument, take a look at our Snake Head Instrument cable!

  • Braided copper shield (95% coverage)
  • 20AWG conductor

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
The Snake Head is only needed if you're concerned about finish wear if you have vintage or sensitive finishes like thin nitro, etc. If you don't care (or even want the wear) a Standard is great for the primary instrument cable. If this cable is going from pedalboard to amp, then it should be a Standard to ensure maximum protection of the cable.
Answer
A silent plug is not necessarily an "upgrade". Typically, a silent plug is for acoustic players who do not have the ability to mute their signal and would unplug their instrument. If you're an electric player with a Tuner or Volume pedal, then you don't really need a silent plug. Silent plugs are great, but they do provide another potential point of failure - so I always recommend, if you don't need the feature, purchase a standard plug.
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.

What Michael R. Said...


Testimonial:

I've been a bass player for many, many, years and have, at one time or another, used most of the quality cables on the market over that time. I found Rattlesnake Cables approximately a year/year and a half ago and haven't bought anything else since. These are the best cables I've ever used bar none. I have pretty much every color in 10 or 15 foot lengths as well as in the regular and snake head options. I Really like the shrink wrap protection on each end and don't think they will fail anytime soon as it (the rubber relief protection) did on one Major, and most popular, "high end" cable that I paid more for than any Rattlesnake has cost me. I've now started giving Rattlesnake Cables to my musician friends as gifts for birthdays, holidays, etc., and by some of their comments I am pretty sure Hank has a few more longtime customers.

Thoughts about our Service:

Absolutely fantastic! In fact I "thought" I had a problem with one cable I ordered as it didn't work on one of my basses. I messaged Hank, admittedly prematurely, and he was all over it wanting ALL the details, etc. Well it ended up being an issue on the bass and not the cable so Rattlesnake is still perfect with zero defaults...at least on all my orders.

What was purchased:

Guitar/Bass cables, Speaker cables, Patch cables

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 Patrick J. Said...


Testimonial:

I bought my first Rattlenake cable about 5 years ago, and it severed me so well that I have exclusively used them since. I probably have a dozen different cables by now, and I just love them. Obviously, they do what they’re intended to do—carry the audio signal from your guitar to your amp. But they are also tough as nails. I’ve never had a single issue, and I recommend them to everyone. Plus, Hank and company have great customer service.

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake is so fast and responsive. I just love them.

What was purchased:

Various snake bite cables, standard cables, and flex patch cables.

What Rick R. Said...


Testimonial:

I have to admit I was hesitant at first because of the price. But I am so glad I decided to try them out. They are skillfully built with quality both in fit and finish. I never knew how inferior other cables were until I owned and used rattlesnakes for myself. This is now my go to company for cables. I recommend them every chance I get.

Thoughts about our Service:

Customer service was A+ Great communication regarding build date and shipping information.

What was purchased:

I now have two standard guitar cables both have one straight and one angled plug.

What Mark H. Said...


Testimonial:

I am, as a Southerner, almost obliged to take flights of hyperbole on occasion...but, it is almost impossible for me to overstate how lucky I feel to have found Rattlesnake Cable Company. I've only bought a few cables and a gift card...but, Hank treats me as if I am his best customer. Aside form the highest quality cables I have ever owned, he's patient when I booger things up, he's obviously knowledgeable and takes quality very seriously. Someday, because I'm a belt and suspenders kind of guy, I'll buy a back up set of cables... I have no idea why, these should last a lifetime.

Thoughts about our Service:

I'm just a schmo, but Hank treats me as if I was the cornerstone of his business.

What was purchased:

This time I bought a six foot, speaker cable, in my favorite weave color. All my cables match...which should end a bit of confusion after a gig (if they ever happen again) or a jam.

What George L. Said...


Testimonial:

Superior products with unmatched service! Rattlesnake is, and will remain my "go to" cable supplier.

Thoughts about our Service:

Outstanding products. Communication is always prompt. Custom requests are processed and shipped quicker than other suppliers turn off the shelf products. With dozens of cables purchased, I have never had a problem with product quality, transaction ease, nor shipping speed. My business with Hank has been flawless!

What was purchased:

Standard, Snakehead, TRS, Speaker, Flex Patch, Pro Patch, and multiples of all the aforementioned cables.

What Mark T. Said...


Testimonial:

First and foremost the level of customer service that Rattlesnake provides is something that nearly every other company on earth should strive for. The absolute best. The cable? Fantastic. Built like a tank with American components by Americans. They look like a million bucks and there is noticeably more clarity in my signal. You can ask for any more as a customer. Hank and Rattlesnake have earned a new customer for life, as I will now outfit my entire set up with their cables.

Thoughts about our Service:

Emails are answered very quickly and Hank is there to help every step of the way. My cable was made quickly and shipped just hours after I placed my order. It arrived at my door step in Pennsylvania less than 3 days later. The personalized video from Hank saying my cable was done and shipped was a classy touch. Simply put: Rattlesnake’s customer service is second to absolutely no one. I can’t recommend them enough.
