Ben B. - I had been toying around with buying some shorter cables and when I came across an ad for Rattlesnake Cables, I knew I had to give them a shot! From the aesthetics of the weave to the unsurpassed customer service, I’ve been blown away by this company! The cables simply have to be felt in your hand to be fully appreciated. They are carefully crafted by someone who prioritizes quality over quantity—a rare thing in this day and age. The sound is...

Brad M. - I'm a full-time musician playing 6 gigs per week, either locally or on the road, I have a hard time finding cables to stand up to the beating, and these are high-quality cables. They're clearly sturdy from the minute you touch them, and very cool visually. I've found myself talking about them often to other musicians, definitely worth the money to give them a try. Easy order, quick delivery, I received them within a few days.

L F. - Packaging was solid, box goodies were a nice surprise too. The cable was visually striking, the tangerine color with the white shrink tubes matches my Orange IR15 as a bonus, it was neatly coiled inside of a drawstring bag, has a nice stiffness to it without feeling brittle, the tubing around the plugs is neatly applied and the subtle logos look nice too. The plugs themselves feel secure and well seated. No extra noise or feedback when I plugged...

Alan H. - I was honestly a skeptic, and figured since I only use 10' cables for recording, cable quality would make little difference. I always used cheap cables until I got tired of them failing on me and bought a 10' Rattlesnake cable and a couple of jumper patch cables for my effects loop. I was surprised to find that apparently my instrument cables had apparently been a significant noise source. The Rattlesnake cable was completely silent even with...

Randy L. - Rattlesnake cables were recommended to me by a fantastic guitar player and very good friend. He raved about the quality, improved signal, and customer service. His recommendation turned out to be spot on. After ordering 4 cables, I received a personalized video from Hank Donovan verifying the specific cables I ordered and thanked me for my purchase... what! A little pricey but the quality is off the charts!

Mike S. - I've been using Rattlesnake cables now for about 6 months for my pedal steel rig and they have made a considerable difference in the clarity of the sound of my instrument and amplifier. The quality of the cables is top notch, and everything is sturdy and built to last. If you're serious about music, invest in high quality cables and support a business in the USA.

Jimi P. - Many years ago now I met Hank Donovan on the guitar forums on Farcebook. he was always an ace dude, and when I found out about his product, I was intrigued. As a professional musician, I really wanted to check it out, but the higher price kept me at bay... a false economy triggered by stupidity. recently, Rattlesnake was having a sale, so I decided to try one. it was a class act all the way as an experience,...

Rick W. - Yep these are for real! My rig sounds better than ever. Can hear every nuance of the guitar at any volume. I love that the cords are thicker and heavily constructed as well. Should hold up for long tours,(I'll update on this). Not to mention how cool they look. I have found a new home for all my cord needs with Rattlesnake, and I do not see anyone topping what Hank is doing any time soon.

Miguel J. - Rattlesnake Cables are built with extreme care and dedication. They are rugged, built to last, and provide exceptional tone quality. I am a minimalist when it comes to equipment (my usual setup is guitar-cheap cable-amp). This is my first time purchasing a high end cable and it does not disappoint. I may not need to purchase another one for many years. When something goes wrong during a gig or recording session, I try my best to take...

I had been toying around with buying some shorter cables and when I came across an ad for Rattlesnake Cables, I knew I had to give them a shot! From the aesthetics of the weave to the unsurpassed customer service, I’ve been blown away by this company! The cables simply have to be felt in your hand to be fully appreciated. They are carefully crafted by someone who prioritizes quality over quantity—a rare thing in this day and age. The sound is crystal clear with no issues whatsoever. I have been bitten by the Rattlesnake and I most definitely will be buying more from them!

Thoughts about our Service:

Imagine my surprise when I received an email that included a personalized video from the owner of the company! When does that ever happen?! I also received a thank you note in my order and the whole thing has made me feel like my purchase has been appreciated. I know that I can depend on Rattlesnake cables and they will take care of me. And you, too.

What was purchased:

Two 10’ snake weave cables with the snake head angled end—a must for instrument use. Stickers—I love stickers! A pick tin with the Rattlesnake logo—it's awesome And has replaced the Altoids box on my board!

Testimonial:

Packaging was solid, box goodies were a nice surprise too. The cable was visually striking, the tangerine color with the white shrink tubes matches my Orange IR15 as a bonus, it was neatly coiled inside of a drawstring bag, has a nice stiffness to it without feeling brittle, the tubing around the plugs is neatly applied and the subtle logos look nice too. The plugs themselves feel secure and well seated. No extra noise or feedback when I plugged in and played for a couple of hours, didn't hinder my movement or really get in my way. When I was done it coiled up neatly without resistance for storage. Hank and the Rattlesnake team were communicative and courteous, it was a pleasure doing business with them. I felt like a significantly valued customer, regardless of my humble 10ft cable order. All said and done, I'm a satisfied customer and will be replacing all of my cables with Rattlesnake cables as quickly as possible.

Thoughts about our Service:

Absolutely one of the most solid customer service and all around experiences as a customer. Hank and the team are nice, informative, and seem genuinely concerned with making sure you as the customer feel fully satisfied with your experience.

What was purchased:

10ft Snake head in tangerine.

What Alan H. Said...


Testimonial:

I was honestly a skeptic, and figured since I only use 10' cables for recording, cable quality would make little difference. I always used cheap cables until I got tired of them failing on me and bought a 10' Rattlesnake cable and a couple of jumper patch cables for my effects loop. I was surprised to find that apparently my instrument cables had apparently been a significant noise source. The Rattlesnake cable was completely silent even with guitars I just thought had noisier pickups. In addition, the jumper cable I was using on my board apparently was draining quite a lot of high-end off, which I learned after swapping in one of the Rattlesnake jumpers. I ended up with a second order to replace all the patch and jumper cables in my setup, and a spare 10' cable. My new setup clearly retains more top end and is more quiet than I thought was possible. I didn't play a lot of high gain before and just accepted the noise when I did, but even high gain is no problem now. I'm sold!

Thoughts about our Service:

When I was trying to decide which cables to buy for my setup I got an email from Rattlesnake checking if I had any questions. I emailed back outlining what I was trying to do, and they let me know they had an overstock cable on hand that fit what I needed, so I even got a discount! I really appreciated the customer service here, it was definitely above and beyond!

What was purchased:

x2 10' instrument cables x6 6" patch cables x1 10" patch cables x1 2' jumper cable x2 3' jumper cable

What Jimi P. Said...


Testimonial:

Many years ago now I met Hank Donovan on the guitar forums on Farcebook. he was always an ace dude, and when I found out about his product, I was intrigued. As a professional musician, I really wanted to check it out, but the higher price kept me at bay... a false economy triggered by stupidity. recently, Rattlesnake was having a sale, so I decided to try one. it was a class act all the way as an experience, including some unexpected perks like messages to let me know my cable was in process, and even a video from hank thanking me for my purchase. it arrived a couple days later in a nice hemp stash bag, and MAN! this sucker is INDESTRUCTABLE. even my 400 lb ass standing on the thing won't crush it's protective sheathing. the ends are SOLID and perfectly protected with shrink wrap. the bare end for the guitar is a great touch, as its way more flexible than the sheathed part of the cable. tonally it's very clear sounding, with a nice phase alignment.... ie, the bass/mids/trebs all seem equal and balanced which can be a hat trick with any cable... often they suck highs or lose lows. this thing sounds great. every aspect of the deal was pretty sweet. the cable may have SEEMED expensive, BUT IN REALITY it's gonna outlast every other cable I've ever owned, I can tell already... hell, I paid more for a monster cable in the past that never made it 10 years before screwing up. I've gone thru probably a thousand dollars of cables over the last couple decades... but this cable will likely last me MY last couple decades. I chose the rattlesnake cover personally, cuz it was so dang cool looking but they have all kinds of other covers you can choose. factor in the custom shop aspect where you can choose your options, and this may well be the finest cable monger on the entire earth. I'm NOT kidding. ~jimi photon, dime-store rockstar and fuzzbox maven

Thoughts about our Service:

off the hook. I never expected to be HAPPY spending 65 bux for a cable! but I am. ;)

What was purchased:

I got the rattlesnake cable with the uncovered end, straight on amp end, angled on guitar end with the rattlesnake cover which has a beautiful diamondback finish.

Testimonial:

Rattlesnake Cables are built with extreme care and dedication. They are rugged, built to last, and provide exceptional tone quality. I am a minimalist when it comes to equipment (my usual setup is guitar-cheap cable-amp). This is my first time purchasing a high end cable and it does not disappoint. I may not need to purchase another one for many years. When something goes wrong during a gig or recording session, I try my best to take responsibility and not blame my equipment/tools. When something goes very well, on the other hand, I always give credit where its due. Rattlesnake Cables are top quality, and I recommend them for any performing or recording musician.

Thoughts about our Service:

Mr. Hank Donovan was very helpful and accommodating and offered an artist discount and free shipping. The order arrived quickly and very nicely packaged. Overall great experience and will definitely make another purchase soon.
