Silver Serpent Reference Guitar Cable Overview

The Better Cables Silver Serpent Reference Guitar cable is the best-sounding guitar cable we have ever heard. The Silver Serpent uses a large silver-coated copper conductor. Silver is a highly conductive metal (silver is a better conductor than copper or gold). One of the major factors that make a great-sounding guitar cable is its low capacitance. Our Silver Serpent Reference guitar cables have one of the lowest capacitance in the industry - 18.8 pF/f. The low capacitance results in unparalleled high-frequency response. The Silver Serpent Reference guitar cable features a semi-conductive layer that guarantees the cable to be "noiseless" when in contact with the floor- most guitar cables pick up noise when moved or bumped on the floor. The audible "thud" is then amplified.

We use the G&H Pure Plugs or the Neutrik Silent Plug for the connectors. The G&H Pure Plug is unique in the way it is attached to the cable. The Pure Plug reduces the number of parts to four and directly crimps the hot and ground to the tip and sleeve. The Pure Plug also reduces the number of metal transitions in the typical instrument or speaker cable to just three (most connectors have over fifteen metal transitions). The result is less distortion and a much purer sound. This new-patented technology has elevated the standard for studio-quality sound. The Pure Plug is the most durable and best-sounding cables on the market.

If you would like to "silence" your guitar while changing instruments without turning off your amp, consider the Neutrik Silent Plug Optional Neutrik Silent Plug - Click to read about the Neutrik Silent Connector option 

The extremely low capacitance, superior shielding, and dielectric material, along with the patented G&H Pure Plug 1/4-inch plug makes this cable world-class in every respect. For unmatched clarity of your guitar tone, our Silver Serpent Reference Guitar cable is the pinnacle of performance. While we call it a guitar cable, it works equally well for other amplified instruments such as an electric bass.

What's not to love about the Silver Serpent? It's quiet, transparent, and looks great! And if you like to change guitars mid-show, get the silent connectors and you'll wonder what you ever did without them.

This high-quality instrument cable is one of the best values going in premium silent-connector ca...

This cable got my attention right out of the gates with its use of quality components and made in the U.S.A. I decided to give it a try. First this cable is visually stunning and screams of pro-grade and durable construction and use of legendary Neutrik silent connectors. The only noise this cable passed through has been that created by my SG ... I could not detect any line noise while moving about, changing instruments, or operating near RF generating gear. This cable simply performed flawlessly using both 15W practice amp or 200W stage gear. The order was fulfilled with lightning speed and arrived quickly. A++ service on quality gear -- you can't ask for more! Highly recommend this cable with silent connector!

updated review

Wasn't planning on writing another but looking into what should i add to my toolbox but i figure i update my review since the last time. Since March when i got two of these better cable, They are become my choice for guitarist on stage. When it comes to tones and live sound, no time for compromise chain that often drive sound man to do some extensive tweaking. If you find yourself doing a lot of it, i suggest you get a better cable to your chain. What goes in is what gonna come out. These cables are in my signal chain from the guitar to my to my Rupert Neve RNDI...thats how much i value clarity of all tones and plus reduce unnecessary tweaking. just roll off some low end and thats it. as i mentioned before, the bass or the low end sound of an acoustic guitar sometime muddy and boomy with poor cables...these its the actual bass sound in full tone. Very balanced. No worries i checked without the RNDI and its exactly its clear fidelity that helps brings out the full shape of it its tone. Up to you to save $$$ on better cable vs cheap cable 20x. Plus you will treat a top quality items better vs cheaply made items which often the ones you don't mind loosing. Well not with these better cables. They are locked in my tool box and pick up soon after stage is clear. simply you don't wanna loose them. So help yourself and step into the better side of things and save you time and $$$. invest into you signal chain and you be better off.

Excellent cable 100% satisfied, excellent for Acoustic guitar, they really are Better Cables

I was looking for a new guitar cable and wanted a really good one as others I'd tried didn't deliver the crisp, clear sound that acoustic guitarists need. Before purchasing, I did a lot of loooking around for reviews but couldn't find anything about them, what's more I live in the UK and after trying to order online, I couldn't find a way to post the cable over here.
I sent an email and within a couple of hours recieved an email back from Margaret with full details for transatlantic shipping. I placed the order and it didn't take long for the cable to arrive. When I first plugged it in, the sound was crystal clear and my guitar sounded better than it ever had before, plus it looks awesome.
I now own two, I lent one to my friend who wants to buy one himself, I take mine wherever I go and it always gets a comment or two, the build quality is exceptional and I have no worries about it breaking, I doubt I'll ever need any more.
