    Neutrik plugs, clean as a whistle noiseless and.... sonically id expected brighter top end than my nameless standard cable but NO!!!!
    It made me aware of how brassy and brash my existing instrument cable is. Not more treble but more information in the middle range and a little less brittle in the highs.
    It is stiffer than i would like for performance but i bought it for recording so i just got a 10 foot length and the stiffness isnt a problem. Great customer service, lovely packaging, good product and a small business that i am happy to promote to y’all. 21BCE15B-FBD9-44ED-8534-F82709BFDE7E.jpeg

    Congrats, that looks pretty durable. And for $5.50 US per foot, I sure hope so... Now I want one!

    I'm surprised they don't cost more.

    Ive always had cables that were just cables, not the cheapest but a few dollars more than the cheapest. Then i got a mogami silver cable and it wasnt noticably any different. But ive been fine with what ive had and gigged and recorded and been happy.
    Then i got some new recording opportunities and i looked at my guitars and amps and thought to myself, why am i ok to spend an extra thousand or so to get a better guitar and not spend $50 to get the signal into the amp cleanly?
    So for recording purposes i have just reduced my run from guitar to pedalboard from 20’ generic to this 10’ Rattlesnake and then im going to replace the cables from my pedalboard to amps with 6’ somethings. Sadly Rattlesnake dont offer less than 10’.
