TRS Rattlesnake Cable.

TRS Rattlesnake Cable



Our TRS Cable is a dual conductor cable with the same outside diameter as our standard instrument cable. Our custom, US milled TRS cables use Neutrik Gold TRS plugs. If you're looking for the best TRS cable for your instrument or studio needs, look no further.

If you're wanting a custom TRS cable (length, plug configuration, etc) or TRS patch cables - they are available, but you will need to submit a custom request

What does TRS stand for?

TRS is an acronym that stands for Tip, Ring and Sleeve - which reference the conductors of the plug. With each TRS cable a 20AWG conductor would be connecting to the tip contact of the plug, a conductor on the ring contact of the plug and the internal braided copper shield is bound to the shield of the plug.

What is a TRS Cable?

A TRS instrument cable is simple a cable that contains two internal conductors along with a shield. Standard instrument cables use a single conductor and shield. The purpose of this type of cable is to pass a pair of signals instead of a single signal.

For example a TRS cable could be used as a stereo cable passing left and right signals in a single cable – like an auxiliary cable or headphone extension cable. A TRS cable for guitar could be used to pass multiple pickup sources (piezo and magnetic pickup) down a single cable. A TRS audio cable could also be used as an XLR or balanced cable used in many recording interfaces.

If you’re in need of different plug configurations like a TRS to XLR cable, view our page on balanced monitor cables.

  • Conductor/Shield 99.95% BC
  • Braided copper shield (95% coverage)
  • Pair of 20AWG conductors
  • Cable milled in the United States
  • Hand assembled in Missoula, Montana
  • SKU: SKU-BA5FC24A

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.
Answer
The instrument junction box uses a 20AWG conductor, which is compatible and safe to use with any instrument cable - including patches, etc. The speaker junction box uses a pair of 12AWG conductors, which are beefy and can handle the higher voltages associated with speaker cables.

Testimonial:

I have only used these cables for a few days, but they are already my favorites. Love the "Snake Head" design (18" or so of rubber coated on end of cable that you loop through guitar strap). It will definitely save the finish on my Martin's and PRS's. Fantastic idea and well executed!! Neutrik connectors and shrunken boots covering the connections. What more could you ask for in a cable?

Thoughts about our Service:

I was floored by the great service I received. I placed the order one evening, the next morning I had a video message from Hank telling me that my order was first up to be built that day and that they appreciated the business. It was shipped that same day and arrived 2 days later. Awesome service and the quality seems to be top notch.

What was purchased:

TRS to Dual Mono Splitter, 20' Snake Head in Sidewinder Black with Neutrik Straight Gold to Neutrik Right Angle Gold, 20' Snake Head in Mean Green with Neutrik Right Angle Gold to Neutrik Right Angle Gold

Testimonial:

I am a Missoula native, but I didn't hear about Rattlesnake Cable Company until I went to school in California where a professor of mine swore by Rattlesnake Cables. Being a performer/composer, I wanted to take full advantage of the instruments that I have, one of them being a Rickenbacker 4003FL with a Ric-O-Sound stereo output. Most of the equipment I saw for using the stereo output on that bass was either overpriced or seemed unreliable, but then I found that Rattlesnake Cable Company had exactly what I needed. They make a stereo cable and splitter that's simple and reliable, and you can order the cable with the specifications you want, such as having one end at an angle to plug into the guitar. Purchasing their TRS cable and Dual Stereo to Mono splitter has enabled me to take full advantage of the sonic possibilities of that classic bass, and I'm going to use it to make a lot of noise.

Thoughts about our Service:

The customer service was excellent, they answered all my questions and got my order made specifically for want I wanted. I highly recommend buying your cables here because you can actually talk to someone about them instead of just ordering online and hoping they work right.

What was purchased:

TRS Cable, Dual Stereo to Mono Splitter

What Brian P. Said...


Testimonial:

When I needed a way to split a TRS cable into two TS cables I was disappointed when all I could find on the internet were flimsy Y-cable options. I had remember seeing an ad for Rattlesnake Cables a few months back so I decided to check out if they had anything that would work. They did and I placed my order. I was very surprised to find a personalized video message in my email the next morning detailing the build and testing process. If a company takes the time to send me a message about my small order then they must really take the time to build their products up to my standards. The proof is in the pudding, I got my TRS to 2TS box and it is solid as a rock and works perfect.

Thoughts about our Service:

I am very happy with the customer service I received.

What was purchased:

TRS to 2 TS box

What Tony D. Said...


Testimonial:

Rattlesnake deserves top scores for its products and customer service. The instrument and TRS cables I purchased are supremely sturdy and finished perfectly. No flaws. And the packaging is really nice - cotton sacks for each cable. Did I mention they work as advertised? Hank communicated impressively from start to finish. I mean, a personal thank you video after my purchase?! That was a first for me. I can’t see why I would buy cables anywhere else.

Thoughts about our Service:

Seriously, haven’t experienced better.

What was purchased:

Snake head instrument cable. Custom instrument and balanced cables.

What Kevin K. Said...


Testimonial:

Rattlesnake builds quality products. everything I have purchased from Rattlesnake has preformed well, and weathered abuse/use. this is the reason we have bought a bunch of cables from them. never had a problem with anything i have purchased, and Hank is always friendly (and seems to keep late hours, i got him on chat once at like midnight). i don't think you can go wrong with any purchase from rattlesnake, and it will last!

Thoughts about our Service:

Customer service is superb. As I said above, always seem to be able to connect with someone on the chat or on the phone. Even when they didn't make the type of cable needed, they directed me to the right place to be able to get it.

What was purchased:

XLR Cables, TRS Splitter, 1/4" guitar cable

What William L. Said...


Testimonial:

Exceptional cables, personalized service, fast shipping, great price. Rattlesnake Cables are without a doubt a superior product to the big name brands that are typically found in the large chain stores. The unique weave on the exterior of each cable adds to the durability and allows you to either personalize or color code if you require several cables for your rig. They offer a wide variety of options and if you need, you may request a custom cable to suite your needs. Personalized service takes these exceptional cables to the next level. Email confirmation of your order within minutes, hand written notes when your order arrives, and a follow up to ensure you are satisfied. I had a small hiccup on my last order when the payment was processing, and I received an email within 30 minutes asking if the order was legitimate, and an apology for the hiccup in the system; completely unnecessary, but speaks volumes about their commitment to your satisfaction. Shipping is always within a day or so of your order. Rattlesnake sets a very high standard and I will not use any other.

Thoughts about our Service:

Exceptional. Best in the business.

What was purchased:

2 x 20 ft cables; 1 15ft TRS cable; custom order patch cable; 2 x 5 ft standard cables.

This is the reason I chose Rattlesnake. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to also interact with the people, it’s yet another reason why I will be returning. Thank you, gang. You made a real difference in my enjoyment of playing guitar.
