Featured Artist Spotlight.

At Rattlesnake Cable Company we very much appreciate our customers and users of our cables. It's a community of musicians that love gear, and we wanted to feature them. As musicians ourselves, we are always curious what players are using.. and why, and what inspires them. We started the Featured Artist Spotlight to bring these stories to you.

Do you have to be a famous musician to be featured? No. Do you have to be a professional musician to be featured? No. Do you have passion about playing and gear -- oh and a verified Rattlesnake Cable Company cable user. Yes!

All you need to do is contact us and we'll direct you to our submission form. If your submission is approved, it will be in the queue to be showcased!
