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 Cuyler H. Said...


Testimonial:

I was sold on the sturdiness of the build as Hank described it to me as soon as I received my cable. The connectors themselves are very smooth and don't catch on the input jacks. There were no promises of cutting single coil hum (Hank and I both share the struggle of playing Jazzmasters) yet I was astonished by the substantial reduction in noise in my clean signal after switching from my current GLS cable to a Rattlesnake. It immediately made me want the best of the best for every part of my chain.

Thoughts about our Service:

Peerless. Hank proactively communicated with me as I was browsing and answered several of my questions. After ordering, he sent a personalized video to me thanking me for my order.

What was purchased:

Standard Cable, 15' - Limited Seafoam Weave Edition

What Nik O. Said...


Testimonial:

I was recommended rattlesnake cable co, through a Rickenbacker Facebook page. I was after using the rick-o-sound on my 78 4001. I asked Hank a few questions on line, and he recommended the bits I needed. I ordered on 3rd Oct 2020 and was shipped on the 5th, it arrived at my house on 14th Oct in Liverpool UK. The quality is outstanding, even down to the cloth bags for storage, I can't fault this guy. If you need a cable you gotta use RattlesnakeCables.com.

Thoughts about our Service:

Thank you so much Hank , for your advice and workmanship.

What was purchased:

TRS to dual mono splitter and TRS Neutrik gold cable For use on 1978 rickenbacker 4001 bass

Outstanding customer service.

What was purchased:

15' standard snake weave cable

What Craig J. Said...


Testimonial:

It's no contest. Hands down the best cables I've ever used. I've got five of them and have given a couple more away as gifts to people I know who put their gear through the paces. I keep a couple at home and a few in my band's studio. The signal is cleaner and louder than any other cable I've used. The cable itself is essentially indestructible. Plus, I like supporting a small company from Montana who makes a great product and delivers personal service.

Thoughts about our Service:

Excellent....Hank delivers personal service and it's clear he really appreciates the business.

What was purchased:

In all, I've purchased seven snake head cables. Four are 20ft. with straight ends on both sides of the cable, one is 10ft. with straight ends and two are 20ft. with a right angle plug for the instrument.

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.
