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.

Testimonial:

I have never really had a go to guitar cable. I’ve been playing guitar for 35 years and have always just bought whatever brand at any given time. Nothing to extravagant or expensive. Having an upcoming gig, I thought I’d get some new cables for my guitars. I had heard about Rattlesnake cables on The Guitar Knobs podcast. I thought now was a good time to give them a try. I sure am happy I did. The build quality is absolutely amazing.

Thoughts about our Service:

The customer service is phenomenal. Upon ordering you get an order confirmation email. Then you get an email when your cables are starting to be made. I ordered a pedal steel to volume pedal cable and I was a little concerned about the length being too short. So i replied to one of the emails and was instantly engaged in a conversation with Hank and he had me measure to insure the cable would be long enough and he even added a foot to it to be safe. The shipping was fast. Priority USPS. a tracking number is sent and I got my cables in a few days. The cables come in their own snake bags. Awesome !! I now have a cable supplier.

What was purchased:

I purchased some various lengths some diamondback rattlesnake patterned cables and even a blue one to match the faded Pelham Bluefinish on one of my Les Pauls

What Kevin Ian C. Said...


Testimonial:

I've been a customer since the official launch of Rattlesnake Cables. Immediately I noticed an increase in volume and clarity. I was so used to buying either really expensive cables that often had a tendency to die early for their price, or really cheap cables because they had the same life. I had overlooked the importance of cables until after purchasing my first set of Rattlesnake Cables. Perhaps the best sell of these cables is when I let other band members use the cables--the first reaction is usually "Wow... it's LOUDER, but more clear!"

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank is very easy to talk to, and he's been playing guitar for a long time--so I trust him when he makes suggestions for me. he's listened to my various projects over the years, so he has an idea about what I'm looking for!

What was purchased:

I'm a simple guy and like my braided guitar cables. either 10-15 feet, though I do have a 21 foot cable for the gigs with deep stages. I've purchased 5-6 cables thus far, and with the exception of some stolen gear (that included my first set of cables), they have been very hearty and reliable!

What Quinten H. Said...


Testimonial:

I always heard about Rattlesnake Cables and had seen them. I ordered a Purple one and I love it!!! I then ordered a couple of Midnight Purple and a couple of Grey.... all with Rattlesnake ends. Then, I got a couple Speaker Cables. I LOVE these cables. The tone is true and they are durable.... plus, they look really cool. But, the test is in the tone. I’ve noticed no tone loss with these cables. I can trust that when I plug in I’m gonna be happy. Also, the fact that you can message Hank and he is very quick in responding. That, for me, has been icing on the cake with his customer service. Well done!!!! I’ll be ordering more very soon!!!!

Thoughts about our Service:

Stellar. Top notch.

What was purchased:

Rattlesnake Cables... purple, grey, midnight purple Red Speaker Cables Red Steel Gtr Cables that I use for connecting pedals that are not always on my pedal board. They are the perfect length and ends.
