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!

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 Matt V. Said...


Testimonial:

I got this cable to serve a need- a 10 ft guitar cable with two right angle plugs. Cables seemed a 'utility" purchase- you spend just enough to get the one that does the job. What I got instead is another tone machine- seriously, I sound better. I've tried every guitar I own with it. They all sound better, like dialing in the perfect presence. If, like me, you have been buying 'mid priced' cables- not like cheap junk, but just reliable? Yes, it's well worth the extra 10-20% price. I'm broke, right now ( aren't we all, in these times of quarantine ?) but when I have money again- I think I'm going to buy a whole lot more from Rattlesnake.

Thoughts about our Service:

The customer service was fantastic- friendly, efficient, and fast!

What was purchased:

I just bought a 10 foot standard cable, with snake weave, and two right angle plugs.

Testimonial:

I hadn't plugged into and amp in a long time until the other week. I could stand my tone...it was very dull, and the snaps, crackles and noises. I bought some Rattlesnake cables, they arrived and I hooked 'em up and played for an hour or so. I never knew cables could make such a difference. Same settings and my guitar sounds much brighter...much clearer. There is no more noise...except for my playing...they lay nice and flat as well. Thanks Hank and Co.

Thoughts about our Service:

You'd have thought I was their long lost brother, they treated me as if they valued my business.

What was purchased:

I bought to regular cables one 15', one 20'...each with one angle plug.

Testimonial:

Hank - I got my order yesterday; once again - highest quality products, quality packaging, fast shipping, great doing business with you guys! I wanted to let you know, for future reference, the TRS cable and TRS Dual Mono Splitter are the PERFECT set-up for my Michael Kelly Hybrid. I patch cabled into my pedal board, ran the other mono cable to my acoustic amp, now I'm good to go. I can switch between electric and acoustic on the fly, or mix. Couldn't be happier! Perfect! Thanks again!

Thoughts about our Service:

Great

What Richard L. Said...


Testimonial:

I found out about Rattlesnake Cables through a fellow musician here in Chicago. I loved the look of them and they felt really well constructed.So after seeing him play live with them and proceeded to ask him all about the cables. He said I wouldn't regret getting them. So I communicated with Hank and watched some online video reviews and I was sold. I had to get my own to try out. Well I received my order extremely fast and it was packed well. The build quality and construction of these cables are amazing. I brought them into band practice and showed the guys and they usually use what ever is cheap to get by. After they seen felt and played through them they too were sold. So now my band members want their own. I'd highly recommend this fine product to anyone who is looking for a high quality cable.

Thoughts about our Service:

Excellent communication. Timely responses to all my questions.

Testimonial:

Why are people still buying $15 Amazon cables? I have gone through enough cheap cables and I wish I had found these sooner! Everything is robust and you can feel the build quality. Plus, it came super fast! Ordered Monday night and received Wednesday. On top of that, the cable came in a beautiful cloth Rattlesnake bag and the best part was the personal thank you on a Rattlesnake notepad! Of course, the cable sounds great as well! Above and beyond from Hank and Rattlesnake Cable Co.

Fantastic!
