Andrew W. - I had the pleasure of meeting Hank over 4 years ago and he introduced me to his custom cables. I ended up picking up a 20' Snake Head cable and have used it at every show and studio session I've had since. Over the years I've slowly replaced every cable in my guitar rig to Rattlesnake. The quality is unmatched, and Hank does an excellent job in making sure you get exactly what you need from him and his cables. They are the only cables I use,...

Anthony J. - I watch a YouTube video, by Just Nick, about cables , signal path, tone, and then his reviewed on Rattlesnake Cables. After watching the video I decided to purchase some cables because my monster cables had started to show some wear and were getting twisted. I was amazed at the quality of the Rattlesnake Cables that I purchased. They are solid, heavy duty, and beautiful cables. They do not twist, the plugs are awesome, and they sound great. They...

Todd N. - My initial purchase of a Rattlesnake cable came from it being unique (to me) in the market, and that it was a single builder in Montana. The cable came with a personal note, and a bit of swag which was cool but, the build of the cable was outstanding. I compared it in many ways with my current monster cables. The biggest difference actually came in the way of sound. I was not expecting to actually have better sound from a cable. Its all wire...

Joe R. - I have the privilege of playing guitar, bass, and synth in a live setting so it goes without saying I have my share of cables and have tried most of them out there.

Jack K. - For years I never found a cable company that I was completely sold to. I went with Monster cables for a while but that was mostly out of convenience. Then I discovered Rattlesnake Cable Company. What really stood out to me was their customizable options from different connectors to cable colors. This really appealed to me, because I really liked the idea of getting equipment that felt unique to me. The sound and build quality was important as...

Joseph J. - Rattlesnake Cables are easily the best I've ever played. I've been playing for 15 years, playing shows for 10+, I used to have to replace cables as often as tubes. between getting yanked out, stepped on, and various beverages spilled on them; I had never had a cable last over a year. I bought two Snakeheads initially and loved how robust they felt, it took a while to get used to the stiffness, but any other cable feels flimsy to me now. including...

Kirk B. - These are the best cables, bar-none, at any price that I've owned on 38 years as a musician. I've bought some of the well known, overpriced (at the time I believed I was getting my money's worth) and yet as underwhelming a product as I've encountered. I'm using Rattlesnake Cable company cables in my project studio presently as they the quietest, aka noise free, a cable as I've used, whether in my studio or in a commercial studio where I've done...

Tom P. - I have a 20' Rattlesnake instrument cable on my busy living room floor that has outlasted any monster cable that once rested there. My living room test proves to me that Rattlesnake cables are more durable than monsters.

I had the pleasure of meeting Hank over 4 years ago and he introduced me to his custom cables. I ended up picking up a 20' Snake Head cable and have used it at every show and studio session I've had since. Over the years I've slowly replaced every cable in my guitar rig to Rattlesnake. The quality is unmatched, and Hank does an excellent job in making sure you get exactly what you need from him and his cables. They are the only cables I use, period.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank delivers the best service for custom cables out there. I always receive my cables within a few days of ordering, and he has taken care of repairing and replacing cables worn on the road. Hank runs his business the right way, where his first concern is the player and helping them achieve their tone goals with his cables.

20' Snake Head, 25' standard, a variety of flex patch, speakon and quarter inch speaker cables.

Testimonial:

I watch a YouTube video, by Just Nick, about cables , signal path, tone, and then his reviewed on Rattlesnake Cables. After watching the video I decided to purchase some cables because my monster cables had started to show some wear and were getting twisted. I was amazed at the quality of the Rattlesnake Cables that I purchased. They are solid, heavy duty, and beautiful cables. They do not twist, the plugs are awesome, and they sound great. They are by far the best cables I have ever used in my 20 plus years of playing guitar.

Thoughts about our Service:

My customer experience with Rattlesnake Cable Company was exceptional. The plug cover on snake head end of one of my cables started to become loose so I emailed Hank to ask about how I might fix it. Hank asked me to ship the cable back so he could check it out. Hank told me the connection was starting to fail so he offered to replace it with a new cable. I requested that an additional five feet be added to the cable length. Hank told me no problem and sent me back a new cable free of charge. Rattlesnake stands by their product and I honestly think one cannot go wrong by giving their cables a try.

What was purchased:

I purchased two 15' snake head cable, two 15' standard cable, and one 2' standard cable, and one 4' speaker cable. All my mates have purchase Rattlesnake cables after seeing and playing through my cables.

The cable came with a personal note, and a bit of swag which was cool but, the build of the cable was outstanding. I compared it in many ways with my current monster cables. The biggest difference actually came in the way of sound. I was not expecting to actually have better sound from a cable. Its all wire right? I could actually hear an audible difference. I have since bought another cable to go from my pedalboard to my amp, and a speaker cable.

Thoughts about our Service:

Rattlesnake provides excellent customer service. A great website to make you purchase selection easy, and prompt delivery. Hank's personal touch on the product and the package are appreciated.

What was purchased:

10' snake head cable, 15' standard cable with a right angle jack, and a speaker cable.

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank is the Man! Super nice guy, easy to talk to, and is always very quick with responses and getting orders out. Out of all of my cables I have only have one small issue with one of the cables. Hank went above and beyond to make it right and help keep me plugged in without missing a note. He really stands behind his work!

What really stood out to me was their customizable options from different connectors to cable colors. This really appealed to me, because I really liked the idea of getting equipment that felt unique to me. The sound and build quality was important as well and they definitely delivered on that as well. I am very glad to have found cable company that I can stick with.

Thoughts about our Service:

Very positive, it couldn't be better. I got my orders in a very timely manner (within a couple of days) and when one of my cables had broke I got it repaired for free and the turnaround time was very quick. Hank was easy to get in touch with and response time was always fast with corresponding emails.

What was purchased:

Speaker cable, snakehead cable, standard cable.

Testimonial:

I am a multi instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and sound engineer who also works in a music retail store. I've seen, used, sold, purchased, and assembled a lot of cables over the years from various companies. I loved the idea of Rattlesnake and love supporting American companies like Rattlesnake Cable Company. When I ordered some of his cables in Mean Green for my guitar and speaker cabinet I was blown away by the personalized touch Hank offers and also by the overall build quality. I have yet to experience any issues and based on the service I've received so far I'd have no reservations that he wouldn't stand behind his products 100%. The cables not only look great and are rugged but the sound is superb. I know they are just cables but I honestly look forward to getting more in the future as needed. So if you are sick of supporting overseas mega corporations that don't care about you or your tone contact Hank and the gang at Rattlesnake and get ready to experience instrument, speaker and mic cables like never before.

Thoughts about our Service:

Communication has been great long before I'd ever bought a cable I'd gotten info on having my studio becoming a dealer (still a strong possibility). The purchase experience was one of the best I got notified when my order was received, processed, given tracking info and when I opened the package I was greeted by a handwritten thank you card and a carefully packed set of cables in a tin with my t shirt. Have some other Rattlesnake swag that Hank kindly threw in like stationary. This level of service and attention to detail is rarely seen in this day and age. I'd grade the service 100% everything and more than I expected.

What was purchased:

3 foot mean green speaker cable 15 foot mean green snakehead guitar cable Collector tin Rattlesnake t shirt

Rattlesnake Cables are easily the best I've ever played. I've been playing for 15 years, playing shows for 10+, I used to have to replace cables as often as tubes. between getting yanked out, stepped on, and various beverages spilled on them; I had never had a cable last over a year. I bought two Snakeheads initially and loved how robust they felt, it took a while to get used to the stiffness, but any other cable feels flimsy to me now. including Monster, Mogami, Planet Waves, etc. next up on my to-do list is to swap out the Lava Cables on my board to Rattlesnake patch cables

Thoughts about our Service:

Hank is the man, always helpful and quick with invoices. the personal messages with each order are an added bonus.

What was purchased:

2 Snakeheads 2 Standards 2 Speaker Cables 1 Pro Patch

What Kirk B. Said...


Testimonial:

These are the best cables, bar-none, at any price that I've owned on 38 years as a musician. I've bought some of the well known, overpriced (at the time I believed I was getting my money's worth) and yet as underwhelming a product as I've encountered. I'm using Rattlesnake Cable company cables in my project studio presently as they the quietest, aka noise free, a cable as I've used, whether in my studio or in a commercial studio where I've done session work or in a couple of bands I've been in. I'm be also used them on the stage in live performances to determine how robust they were and I have no complaints. There is a feature that is inferred that disconnects the cable electrically before it can cause the annoying, ear spitting, speaker blowing kerblanggg because the dumba** FOH board operator neglects to mute the open channels during load in or load out. lol. These cables are worth every penny and then some. I've perused other cable building vendor sites that attempt to wow and impress with fancy specifications. I can tell you that the proof is in the plugging in and playing. There are so many variables in the signal chain and the effects of one's rig, that any builder, e.g., Hank Donovan of Ratlesnake Cable Company, will use decent quality materials and those specifications lose most of their meaning. The customer service and delivery time are also Blue Ribbon winning. If I had these cables available even ten years ago, with what I've spent on cables that are now used as cargo tie downs for the gear in the bed of my truck for hauling the band's gear when playing 100 miles out, I could have bought a dozen of Rattlesnake Cable Company Cables and a few more stomp boxes.

Thoughts about our Service:

As I stated, the customer service is excellent. The communication, confirmation and delivery time all top notch.

What was purchased:

Just off the top of my head, I've bought some ten foot right angle regular cables, a 20 ft with the switch I mentioned and a Snakehead with one straight and one right angle cable. I prefer the red or copper colored tweed cover but there are several colors if one does as I do and. that's picking the color to readily identify my cables, even at a distance. I caught someone walking off with one of mine during load out and while he claimed it was an honest mistake, no one else that night, including Senior Sticky Fingers had red or copper jacket cables. He returned my cable and I let it go...that time. Rattlesnake Cables apparently have a reputation in Northenn California....So Good, they're worth the risk of a beat down for being caught stealing them. lol
