The Radial HeadBone VT Guitar Head Switcher is a specially designed switching device that lets you toggle between two different guitar amplifier heads using a single speaker cabinet. It gives you a choice of buffered or non-buffered inputs and employs opto-couplers to ensure noise-free switching of the guitar signal.
The Radial HeadBone VT Guitar Head Switcher allows two heads to share one speaker cabinet. The Radial HeadBone lets you toggle from one head to another without pops, clicks, hum or added noise. With the Radial HeadBone in your rig, you can use your Marshall head for rhythm and your Mesa-Boogie head for soloing. This is of particular interest for players that demand the utmost in tonal performance when on stage or in the studio.
Features include 100% discrete class-A circuitry for exceptional audio performance, transformer isolated guitar signal path to eliminate ground loops, plus a choice of either buffered or un-buffered inputs to optimize the signal path. The Radial HeadBone's internal switching comprises a series of relays, opto-couplers and load resistors, all of which are sequenced via a digitally programmed chip. Hit the footswitch and the Radial HeadBone jumps to action as it toggles the guitar signal from one amp to the other, disconnects the speaker and diverts the signal to a load resister, reconnects the speaker to the second head and turns the guitar back on - all in quick succession. The Radial HeadBone features SafeMode whereby in the event that power is disconnected - the Radial HeadBone's guitar input will automatically turn off. To eliminate a mess of cables on stage, the Radial HeadBone is equipped with Slingshot a remote control port that lets you switch the Radial HeadBone using any standard footswitch or MIDI controlled contact closure. This eliminates long speaker cables while improving system efficiency.
The Radial HeadBone is available in 3 models: The Radial HeadBone VT for two valve/tube heads, the Radial HeadBone SS for two solid-state heads and the Radial HeadBone TS for tube to solid-state amp head switching.
The Radial HeadBone a Radial 'power tool' for serious guitarists.
