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.

What Alan J. Said...


Testimonial:

I was looking for a splitter box to use with the Rick o Sound feature of my 4003 bass and came across Rattlesnake Cable Co. They had exactly what I was looking for so I jumped on it. From the start I knew I had found the right source for my current and future cable needs. I placed my order at about 8 pm on a Monday evening, around 9 am the following morning, I got a msg from Hank Donavan thanking me for my order and telling me they would start making my cable and box that morning and it would ship out that afternoon. At 3 pm that day I got the msg that it had shipped. Tracking said it would arrive Friday, it showed up Thursday. When I opened the box I was impressed not only by the quality but the unique packaging. Both items were inside draw string burlap bags with the company logo imprinted on them. It is easy to tell that these craftsman take pride in their product. I now recommend them to all my musician friends when we talk and I highly suggest that anyone looking for a great cable, get a Rattlesnake.

Thoughts about our Service:

11 on a scale of 10.

What was purchased:

20 foot TRS cable and splitter box.

What Jeff F. Said...


Testimonial:

I started using Rattlesnake cables a couple of years ago when I made the switch to amp modelers. The first thing that struck me regarding the quality was the physical feel and durability. They get tossed about, packed and un-packed quite frequently and hold up better than any cable I've ever used. As to the sound quality, well, I'm not an audio engineer. But I can tell you I never experience any inexplicable hum or disturbance in my signal chain. Whether from the instrument lines or the speaker cables running to my FRFR's. The custom options are great as they are willing to work with you to achieve whatever the application may be. I'm in the process of replacing every cable I use throughout my rig with Rattlesnake cables. The customer service is top notch and in my experience, the delivery turnaround has been lightning quick. In every instance, I had my cables within days of ordering, even with some custom options. I'm a Rattlesnake customer for life.

Thoughts about our Service:

Fantastic to say the least. The product arrives expertly packaged and the reusable cloth drawstring bags come in handy. An amazing U.S. based company that makes every effort to exceed customer expectations.

What was purchased:

XLR, TRS, and instrument cables.

What Peter H. Said...


Testimonial:

For the last several years I had been partial to Mogami cables for a top of the line cable until I recently discovered this awesome company from right here in the United States. Apart from the materials used, attention to detail with both the appearance and durability I was astounded by the customer service. Hank is the best and he'll make you feel like a valued customer.

Thoughts about our Service:

I was astounded that I received a personalized video from Hank himself when he had finished making my cables. He let me know that my specific request had been completed and that they were on their way. He even let me know that if there were any issues with anything he would personally fix them.

What was purchased:

I am thrilled with all of the cables I recently purchased. I picked up an XLR cable, a standard instrument cable and a snake head cable. I asked about Hank building me a "Y" cable for my effects loop and he recommended that I pick up a TRS splitter box instead with a TRS cable and 2 mono cables. I'm really happy he talked me into making that purchase because I know I'm getting a better tone and the durability will last for years and years to come!!

Testimonial:

Hank and his team helped me reconfigure my pedalboard and designed a custom loom to get three signal paths to my mixer. What a difference! It just makes me feel much more relaxed and able to create. What I wasn't expecting is the overall improvement in tone! I was actually blown away when I first powered everything up and plugged in my Telecaster. A whole bunch elusive hum and noise are now resolved, and my instruments sound rich and vibrant. Thank you Rattlesnake Cable Company!

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank responded to my custom build request within a couple hours with a phone call and helped me understand how they could design a solution for me. They built the custom loom and shipped it the same day. I received the order before I was even ready for it. Hank followed up with a custom video thanking me for my order. Rattlesnake Cable Company provides GREAT customer service!

What was purchased:

Custom loom with: 25' Standard No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight Nickel to Neutrik Right Angle Nickel 30' Balanced Monitor Cable No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight TRS Gold to Neutrik XLR Male Black Shells 30' Standard No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik Straight Nickel to Neutrik Right Angle Nickel 30' XLR Cable No Weave (Bare) with Neutrik XLR Nickel Shells to Neutrik XLR Nickel Shells A whole bunch of Flex Patch Cables

Hank and company make the very best cables on the market, hard stop. Without fail, every single purchase I’ve made from Rattlesnake has come with the best in communication and the best turnaround time. The cables themselves should be considered the standard, virtually indestructible and far superior tone. Nothing else even comes close. Do yourself a favor and throw away all your cables, speaker and pedalboard included and replace them now with Rattlesnake Cables. You can thank me later.
