MIX-BLENDER™ Buffer, Mixer & FX Loop

Part no. R800 7207 00

  • Mix two instruments or effects together at same time
  • Blend in effects while retaining the tone of your instrument
  • Class-A buffered inputs with individual level controls
  • Opens door to creating subtle or unique effects

The Radial Tonebone Mix-Blender™ is a multi-function pedal that lets you mix two instruments or effects together and then send the combined signal through a mixer-style effects loop for processing.

Designed to work with guitar, bass and keyboards, the Mix-Blender begins with two high-performance Class-A buffers for maximum fidelity. These lower the impedance to drive the signal further without noise. Individual volume controls on each channel let you mix the two inputs to suit and can be used to blend two pickups on an acoustic guitar, combine two pedals in parallel such as a chorus and a distortion, or to have two different instruments 'live' on stage – each set with the same output for quick changeovers.

The signal can then be routed to a true 'mixer-style' effects loop and activated using the on-board footswitch. This features a wet-dry blend control that lets you mix-in effects pedals with precise control to add slight enhancements or extreme coloration to the signal chain. In other words, the Mix-Blender lets you retain the original sound of the instrument and add in as much of the effect as you like. Think of adding a touch of overdrive to a bass guitar without losing the bottom end. How about mixing in some distortion to your acoustic guitar to give it more shimmer? How about adding a chorus or phase shifter to your Hammond synth patch?

The Mix-Blender is a unique tool that is designed to bring new tonal textures to your world and enhance your creative inner spark.

Blend both pickups together

Combining two pickups can often lead to the most natural sounding acoustic. Use the Mix-Blender to precisely mix the two signals together. Add a chorus pedal to the effects loop and control it with the footswitch.

Bass guitar with overdrive

Add overdrive or distortion to your bass without losing the powerful bottom end. The Mix-Blender's wet-dry control lets you mix in the perfect amount of distortion to your signal path.
