of direct or buffered input
for tube amps (VT), solid-state (SS) or both (TS)
The Radial Headbone is an advanced amplifier
switching device that allows two different guitar
amp heads to be used with a single speaker cabinet.
With the Headbone, one head could be used for rhythm
while a second head could be used for soloing. With
100% discreet Class-A circuitry and choice of either
buffered or un-buffered inputs, the Headbone will
be of particular interest for players that demand
the utmost in tonal performance.
The Headbone's internal switching comprises a
sequence of relays, photocells, and load resistors,
all of which are controlled via a digitally programmed
chip. Hit the footswitch and the Headbone 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 on the guitar, all in quick succession.
The Headbone features SafeMode™ whereby
even when power is disconnected; the Headbone
will automatically default to 'head-1 to cabinet'
status, ensuring a constant load on the amplifier.
Headbone comes equipped with Slingshot™,
an easy-to-use switching system that uses any
standard footswitch to toggle the Headbone's status
remotely, from wherever the footswitch is located.
Slingshot lets you keep the amp-to-speaker cables
short and efficient and opens up new switching
The Headbone is available in 3 models: The VT
for two valve/tube heads, the SS for two solid-state
heads and the TS for tube to solid-state amp head
