Rattlesnake Cable Co. Unveils the Snake Head

Missoula, MT (January 16, 2017) -- With premium components and an emphasis on quality control, Rattlesnake Cable Co.’s Snake Head cables are designed to deliver a cleaner, punchier tone from any guitar/amp rig.

At the core of the Snake Head is oxygen free copper cable, which is milled in the United States to Rattlesnake Cable Co.’s specifications. The result is a capacitance of 20-25pF/foot, allowing the Snake Head to capture a wide range of low and high-end frequencies. Other Snake Head features include:

  • Premium Neutrik plugs
  • 20 AWG center conductor
  • Braided copper shield with 95% coverage
  • A portion of exposed PVC jacket at one plug-end to prevent abrasion on guitar finishes
  • Durable outer poly-weave, available in seven colors
  • Hand-assembled and individually tested in Missoula, Montana

Whether on stage or in the garage, these cables sound great every time you plug-in. From funk to jazz, P&W to metal, Snake Head cables have garnered praise from players, technicians and recording engineers across genres.

“Rattlesnake cables are perfect! After using them on tour for four months, I have had nothing but joy from using them every single night.” –Johnny Docherty of The Twilight Sad

“For years, I was that guy that always grabbed the cheapest instrument cable. I wadded them up, tossed them in a case every night on tour, and couldn’t figure out why they crapped out on me after a few months. This was assuming, of course, that I didn’t leave them behind at a club, lost amidst all the clubs’ similarly black rubber-coated lines. I cursed at them every night when I’d pull the knotty tangle out of my case and I’d curse them again as they curled up on stage and became an obstacle to avoid during the set. It’s an idiot’s epiphany when you realize that cheap stuff sucks. Rattlesnake Cables’ mesh exterior means I never deal with tangles. I never confuse them with the club’s cables. I never deal with loops and snags on stage. And consequently, I’ll never buy a generic cable ever again.” –Brian Cook of Russian Circles

Rattlesnake Cable Co.’s Snake Head is available in 10’ ($55 MSRP), 15’ ($60), and 20’ ($65), with custom lengths available upon request. Poly-weave color options include red, blue, sage, mean green, dirty tweed, copper and black.

Rattlesnake cables combine quality components and durable design with great tone.

When guitar players think about tone they think about the obvious things: guitars, amplifiers, stomp boxes, etc. The one part that is often left out of the tone equation is the humble instrument cable. These play a much bigger role than many may realise. Cheap no-name cables are made with thin cabling, badly made plugs, poor shielding, etc, often provide dull lifeless tone, especially when you add to the mix long lengths of this wire. It’s not really that noticeable until you try a good quality cable for the first time. Everything sounds bigger, more dynamic, with more clarity. Add to that a more durable build, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t get a better cable sooner.

There’s one thing to be wary of though. There are many overpriced cables out on the market too. The goal is to find a good quality cable at a reasonable price. Hank from Effects Bay is someone who is offering this, with his recently launched new cable company, Rattlesnake Cable Company. His goal is to make high quality, durable cables that look and sound fantastic without the huge cost. I contacted Hank to see if I could get my hands on one, and he obliged, providing me with a nice 15 ft red Snake Head model.

All Rattlesnake cables are made using heavy duty (20AWG inner connector) cable, aiming for low capacitance, and ensuring that the cable is noise free. The cables use 95% braided copper shielding and use a strong outer PVC jacket (.29″ outside diameter). Hank chose to use Amphenol plugs with all cables and also used a heat and abrasion resistant outer sleeving to protect the cable from heavy use. The Snake Head is a cable with the heat and abrasion resistant sleeving stopping short on one end. This leaves a portion of raw cable perfect for wrapping around guitar straps.

When the package arrived I opened the box to find a really impressive branded Rattlesnake cable tin, and inside a neat drawstring bag with the cable inside. Another really nice touch is a velcro strap to keep the cable neatly bundled when not in use.

The cable itself is beautifully made piece. The protective sleeving is extremely tough, and looks great in red, and the Rattlesnake branded heat shrink tubing is another really nice touch. Having a portion of one end of the cable without the protective sleeving is a really nice design as well. The sleeving could possibly damage more fragile guitar finishes, so leaving part of the cable bare shows some real thought has been put into all aspects of the cable design.

Plugging into my amplifier and guitar I was pleased to hear that the Rattlesnake cable sounded as good as it looked. I find that some low capacitance cables are actually a bit too bright and lacking in the low end. The Rattlesnake cable provided a full dynamic tone, with plenty of clarity. The signal is nice and clear with no noise or hum present.

Overall the Rattlesnake Snake Head cable is a brilliantly designed cable at a very reasonable price. The quality and durability of the build, the consideration of the design, and the great tone make this cable a must have for guitar players, especially if they play live.

Overview: Rattlesnake cables are the brainchild of guitarist and electronics guru Hank Donovan based in Missoula, Montana. What started as a hunt for the best components to build the ideal guitar cable for himself quickly grew into a family business. Aptly named after the rattlesnakes that call Montana home, the cable itself might be mistaken for a slithering critter on the ground with its bright colored weave and long black “snake head” sleeve. Custom built to order, Hank’s cables are low-capacitance, heavy duty and dead quiet and sound different than any other cables we’ve ever used.


Features
: Rattlesnake cables come in a variety of colors and you can custom order any length. All Rattlesnake cables come with neutrik plugs plus a heat and abrasion resistant outer sleeving. Hank also offers several different options on his cables, including the “snake head” which stops the heat and abrasion outer sleeving short on one side of the cable, ideal for guitarists who route their cable between the guitar strap and the instrument. Also available are “Pedal steel” cables, a 36″ cable with a right angle on one end, speaker cables, and an optional upgrade to a “silent plug” that renders a cable silent when it disconnects from an instrument.


Sound
: We tested the Rattlesnake extensively against several of the best-selling brands that you can find in a retail store and since we had a few lying around, a couple high-end “boutique” cables. Using a Fender telecaster into a vintage blackface Fender Princeton Reverb, the difference was night and day between the Rattlesnake and our retail brands. The top end was much more extended and the upper harmonics of the guitar were incredibly clear. The sound was also much louder with the Rattlesnake cables, making it obvious that Hank’s quest to find the best components was not in vain. Put to the test against our “boutique” cables, the difference was in the mid-range, the Rattlesnake being slightly more pronounced in the lower mids, giving it a punchy, beefy sound. With its distinctive looks and fantastic, unique sound, the Rattlesnake cable is one of our new favorite guitar accessories.

Rattlesnake cables are by far the best instrument cable that I have ever used. I have been using them on the road and in the studio for 2 years now. Never have I had one cable break or go bad on me, and they endure a lot of abuse. By far the best quality and the best customer service!

My name is Hank Donovan and I started Rattlesnake Cable Company when I began researching for the guitar cable of my dreams. For years prior I've been involved with electronics ranging from pedal building to instrument repairs and to other various nerd related projects. I always enjoyed working on music-centric projects and thought making a great instrument cable would be something fun and satisfying to pursue. I began ordering various components from plugs to cable to protective weaving, etc. I finally found the combination that met all of my needs. I was really excited about the final product.

As a guitarist myself, I wanted to meet specific requirements of an instrument cable. Obviously, signal was the primary goal. I've owned various "quality" cables and I wanted to surpass the quality of those cables. I've always been a believer of quality in the cable (both in signal as well as durability) so this was going to be a tough task. If you're not too familiar with capacitance in cables, here is a quick simple explanation. Some cables begin to bleed off the high-end frequencies and general signal, especially with longer runs. In simple terms, your tone gets "muddy" and quieter.

The instrument cable itself becomes a capacitor (similar to your tone knob on your guitar or bass), and to address this, we have our Oxygen Free Bare Copper (OFBC) low capacitance cable milled here in the United States to preserve those high-end frequencies. Additionally, I hate cables that tend to be noisy due to poor shielding or worse, cease to work due to the shielding being weak or easily broken. The cables we use have a strong heavily braided copper shielding with 95% coverage. This makes the cable super heavy duty... and quiet! Finally, I wanted strong, quality plugs, Neutrik Pro Grade plugs ended up being the winners. The plugs are great quality and their cable clamp system adds more protection for the cables by securing the solder connections. All of these pieces are what ended up creating Rattlesnake Cables today. When I plugged in my first prototype I was immediately blown away by the clarity and the punch of the signal! I used a protective weaving to help prevent cable binding and I had something I was very happy with - a top notch boutique instrument cable! Something that I felt was the best guitar cable for me.

Originally, I assembed the cable for myself, but as soon as other musical friends of mine started seeing, hearing and feeling the cables, the requests started coming in for custom guitar cables... and the company was born. The response has been fantastic and seeing these cables on stage with working musicians is something very special for me!

Rattlesnake Cable Company is based out of beautiful Missoula, Montana where I'm very proud to call my home. What started with a simple idea for me has grown into a family business where my wife and my kids have become involved with the operations (we now have a growing team of amazing individuals). Each cable is assembled and tested and are made "to order". Each cable is play-tested after assembly. They're not simply tested through a cable tester for continuity, but played to determine if the tone is 100% there.

We look forward to building your cable!





We are not just building, what we feel, is the best instrument cable for you, but we also focus on our family and our team at Rattlesnake! Want to learn what we're about? Check out these "mini" story videos to understand where we're coming from. Hope you enjoy!

Here at Rattlesnake Cables we love our direct interactions with the musician - allowing the musician to customize their boutique instrument cables and offering great customer service. Moving forward, this will NOT change, but we also understand that a lot of musicians are interested in picking up a hight quality US made cable at their local guitar store (especially in regards to our international customers). We are now offering a "dealer line" of cables in select music stores, while still maintaining our custom shop cable builds.

Additionally, we will work with our dealers to offer custom guitar cable builds through the dealership as well!

If you are a music store and are interested in carrying some of the best sounding cables on the market, contact us and let us know about your shop! We are currently expanding our dealer network and would love to hear about your store!

Lying pounding on the table, I screamed. In my cry there was both purely physical pain, and indignation at such a prodigal attitude, and shame, from which now can not get rid. Of, and impotence of the Raj Member, like a giant corkscrew, boring me, tearing my previously never touched rear passage.

I was gasping for breath, and without stopping, I screamed. Gradually, under such a powerful pressure, which had poured Raj on my poor ass, the walls of the anus stretched somewhat.
