BASSBONE

Jazz Times magazine
"... clean signal path, smart friendly design...", "There's no wonder why a professional player the caliber of John Pattitucci keeps a Bassbone in his rig."

By Russell Carlson
Fuzz magazine
"... The channel switching feature is good but the really smart thing is the boost switch. A switch marked 'Boost Assign' lets you choose the bosst switch action. your choices are Boost, loop or Both. If you, like me, enjoy pedals the loop will be of good use. the bassbone cna act as a master switch for a chain of pedals. The whole caboodle cna be sitched in or out with a sigle step. Very practical!"

"The Bassbone is much more than a straightforward A/B box ... the DI, which inherits technology from Radial's renowned line of standalone direct boxes, sounded thick and warm in my home studio. The potent EQ was a great tone sculptor particularly with passive or frettless instruments..." ... "The Bassbone offers an extraordinarily useful combination of features for a modest price" ... Anyone who uses more then one bass at a gig ought to check this out. It could easily become standard gear for many performing bassists."

Classic

CLASSIC

Guitar Player
"This is one of the most versatile and best sounding pedals I've heard in a long time. It sounded great with every combination of guitar and amp, and it's dynamic response, impressive chord definition, and extremely quiet operation made it a joy to use."




By Barry Cleveland
Guitarist
"The Tonebone Classic offers easily the most comprehensive palette of tones of all units here" "..we heartily recommend the Classic on the basis that it's by far the most versatile of all five pedals reviewed... name almost any player and their trademark drive tone is locatable here; rock tones are a given, but the strident 'Fendery' SRV lead tone? Oh yes."

"The tonal variations this pedal produces is unbelievable." Hot British™..."Wow! Talk about British Tone! We easily dialed in the famous Cream-era Clapton sounds, to a tee.... If you want to capture that 'British tone' you'll not find a better pedal!" Switchbone™..."We were able to switch between amps with no ground loops or hum. We tweaked the Drag control, and were pleased to hear it deliver as promised... this could well be the best A / B pedal on the market."

By Bob Tekippe / Phil Fester/ Ward Meeker 
The ToneQuest report
"Both Tonebones are thoroughbred, well-built rock pedals that delkiver authentic tube distortion and well designed, versatile controls for shaping lows, mids and highs as well as distortion intensity, harmonic feedback and sustain. if you klike to rock, we think you'll find a permanent spot on your pedalboard or studio for these great tube distortion pedals made in Canada."

By the Editors
Canadian Music
"... rest assured, they are among the best distortion pedals you are likely to find. Both pedals have phenominal build qualityand feature true bypass as well as a single 12AX7 tube to give the unmistakeable tube signature that makes these such good units." ... "Both pedals are great additions to your arsenal of distortion tones and, in all honesty, I woundn't hesitate to reccomend them."

By Mike Turner
Guitar World
"Low gain settings produced incredible blues drive and a warm tube grind that was easily controlled with the guitar's volume. With the gain increased, the top end set to bright and the filter tweaked for natural treble, I was able to mimic Jimi Hendrix's untamed Monterey Pop distortion. Dimming the drive, backing off the filter and dialing up the level evoked the violin-like tones of Eric Johnson. This is simply the finest American-style distortion pedal I've played."

By Eric Kirkland
Guitar One magazine
"Rumor has it that Eric Johnson is fond of this pedal, and understandably so,. Plugging in my Strat, I was easily able to emulate Johnson's 400lb violin tone by switching in the 7dB mid-boost... "... "For sheer versatility as well as well as quality distortion, the Tonebone series rates a 'Guitar 1 Award'."

Dragster

DRAGSTER

Recording
"Radial calls the Dragster a "pickup load corrector", and that pretty much sums up what it does: it lets you dial in an impedance match between your guitar and whatever gear you have it hooked up to, so if you're running your signal into something other than an amp, lik e a wireless transmitter an effects processor, or a computer interfgace that wasn't optimized for guitar use, you can make your guitar respond as if its plugged directly into your favorite amp."

By Mike Metlay
Fuzz magazine
"... A guitar signal with high impedance doesn't go too well with the input on a sound card or a mixer that has high impedance - the purpose of the Dragster is to provide the guitar with an input it "likes" before the signal goes on to a wireless system. I connected the Dragster between my guitar and my DI-box and got both better sound and playing feel when using Sek'd Amplitude and such like. I also noticed improvement with the Dragster in front of a Boss GS-10 and PODxt. Not the least when playing electric bass.."... " The Switchbone has a Dragster circuit built in if you want it all in one package. A Dragster is recommended to all users of digital modelers."

"This go-round with the Radial 'Bone' pedals reinforced what we found in our previous tests; they deliver as promised, giving a player extremely usable switching and effects options that simply haven't been previously available. By combining the Loopbone with either the Cabbone or Headbone, the options are numerous. Giving your rig the ability to achieve the perfect amp and efffects setup, as these pedals do so well, is priceless."

"...The Drag™ control lets you adjust the buffered signal to reintroduce a load on the pickups sound.Simply set up your FX loops and adjust the Drag until your signal sounds the same through the FX loops as it does when you are playing directly into your amp with no pedals. ...the more I used the Loopbone, the more possibilities I began to envision.."

"This battle-tough AB-Y box delivered whisper-quiet switching between two amps — I 'mated' Marshals and Fenders, Voxes and Victorias, and other combinations with nothing but stunning results...."

Guitarist
"Adding the various EQ options opens up a huge range of tones – more than you'd imagine would be possible" ... "Even at the middle setting on the drive gain switch, there's plenty of gain available for most rock and blues purposes; pushing the switch up to the highest position makes for a lovely, thick, saturated distortion." ... "The price isn't the lowest... but it's not unreasonable ... in this case you really do get what you pay for." Awarded five stars out of five for sound"
