remote-controlled switching input
for tube amps (VT), solid-state (SS) or both (TS)
The Radial Headbone is an advanced 'head
switching device' that allows two different guitar
amplifier heads to be used with a single speaker
cabinet. With 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 SafeModeT whereby even when
power is disconnected; the Headbone will automatically
default to a 'head-1 to cabinet' status, ensuring
a constant load on the amplifier.
To eliminate running guitar and speaker cables
to-and-from the amplifier and the pedal board,
the Headbone is equipped with SlingshotT, an easy
to use remote control system that employs a standard
foot switch to toggle the Headbone's status from
a remote pedal board.
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 switching.
