"For years I've been trying to combine all of my favourite tones on stage without carrying around a ton of amps and cabinets on stage. The Headbone helps me get there. Thank God I found it. I only wish I had it years ago... I love my Headbone!" - Mark Tremonti (Creed, Alter Bridge)
Premium Tube Amp Head Switcher with Class-A Circuitry
The Headbone VT solves so many problems the serious guitarist has faced for years; 'how can I use my favourite amp heads conveniently without having to lug around a speaker cabinet for each one?' Complicated signal paths and an unruly webs of cables are a thing of the past. Now you can plug your instrument, amp heads and one speaker cab into the single handy unit that gives you the ability to use your Marshall head for rhythm and your Mesa-Boogie head for soloing, with switching only a foot stomp away! Featuring 100 discrete class-A circuitry for unparalleled audio performance, transformer isolated guitar signal paths to eliminate ground loops, plus a choice of either buffered or un-buffered inputs to optimize the signal path. The Tonebone Headbone's internal switching comprises a series of relays, opto-couplers and load resistors, which are all sequenced by a digitally programmed chip. Hit the footswitch and the Headbone jumps into 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 milliseconds that you won't even notice!
Safemode™ and Slingshot™
Radial's Safemode™ features in the Headbone so if the worst happens and power is lost, it's not a problem, the guitar input will automatically switch off and your amps stay safe.To connect the Headbone, you will only need three guitar cables and three speaker cables, all of which can be hidden behind the amp out of view. The mess of leads you're used to will disappear with the Slingshot™ feature; it allows remote operation of the unit with any standard footswitch or MIDI controlled contact closure. This simultaneously reduces long speaker cables and increases system efficiency, you'll have a serious sonic 'power tool' at your feet!
VT is One of Three Headbone Models
The Headbone is available in 3 models: The featured Headbone VT is for two valve/tube amplifier heads, the SS is for two solid-state heads and the 'hybrid' TS is for tube to solid-state amp head switching. Make sure you choose the right one!
