However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Following the award-winning Tonebone Classic, the Trimode combines the warmth and even harmonics of a 12AX7 tube with Radial's unique dual-stage drive for the natural dynamics and response of a vintage tube amp.

As its name implies, The Trimode has three settings: 'True Bypass Clean Mode' for the natural tone of your guitar - direct to your amp; 'Rhythm Mode' with input drive, output gain and our unique Interstage drive to precision-tune the mayhem you are about to unleash; and 'Solo Mode' with its own input drive, output gain, and mid boost for days of sustain. Trimode goes even further with a built-in effects loop on the solo channel that lets you instantly engage a delay or pedal chain with a single foot action.

Trimode: 3 modes, huge tone and amazing dynamics - finally, a pedal that sounds and feels like a real tube amp!


  • The Radial Trimode offers an amazing combination of simplicity and functionality with innovative, well thought-out features accessible through intuitive controls and i/o options.

  • The two footswitches provide for easy toggling between modes and large LED indicators allow instant at-a-glance monitoring of the Trimode's status.

  • Separate drive, level and mid-boost control for each distortion channel gives the user the power to easily set up exactly the distortion sounds required, then toggle between them with no tap-dancing!

  • The overall TOP END and DRIVE GAIN switches together with variable HIGH and LOW EQ controls and the 'anti-presence' FILTER control will guide you to the perfect tone for your amp/guitar combination.

  • Effects can be connected via the INSERT ¼" send-receive TRS jack and are switched in when you press the 'Toggle' switch to select CH-2.
