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 a low capacitance. Our Silver Serpent Reference guitar cables has one of the lowest capacitance in 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 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.

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.
