Radial Re-Amping Kit

The Radial Re-Amping Kit is a value-priced bundle that contains a Radial X-Amp and a Radial J48 packaged inside a hard plastic lightweight Zebracase. It's everything an engineer, producer, or musician needs to Reamp.

The Radial Re-Amping Kit includes everything you need to Reamp in a single case. Start by recording with the industry standard Radial J48 direct box. This active DI is ideal for Reamping as it will not load down the pickups and will deliver the true sound of the instrument without distortion or artifact.

Then Reamp to your hearts content using the Radial X-Amp Reamper. This active Reamper has two buffered outputs for twice the fun! Run two amps at the same time, add pedals… try Reamping bass, drums and keys. Once you get started you will wonder how you ever recorded without it.

Radial J48 Active Direct Box

The Radial J48 is a great sounding active direct box that has been optimized to produce maximum headroom while working within the limited current available from standard 48V phantom power. By employing a unique switching power supply, the Radial J48 is capable of peak transients to nine volts without choking. The result is lower harmonic distortion, half the inter-modulation distortion, and significantly improved dynamics over other DIs. Features include a -15dB pad, 180? polarity reverse, a unique merge function to mix two signals to mono, an 80Hz high-pass rumble filter, and ground lift. Like all Radial products, the Radial J48 is built to handle the abuse on the road and features unique welded I-beam construction for years of trouble free performance.

Radial X-Amp Active Re-amplifier

The Radial X-Amp is an active re-amping device that presents the engineer / producer with a new and innovative creative tool that allows a pre-recorded track from a line-level device to drive two guitar amplifiers or effect pedals simultaneously. This opens the door to exploring new musical sounds and spurs on the creative process.

huge time-saver May 17, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Duluth, GA United States  
Learning to reamp has maximized my effectiveness in the studio and my opportunities to loan vintage amps for recording.  This kit ensures that both sides of the reamping game (input and output) are up to snuff.  Good quality DI included.  Definitely somewhat effected by the quality of the AD/DA conversion you use, but useable with even project studio setups.
