Details: 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, for instance, 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. Switches two heads using one speaker cabinet Choice of direct and buffered inputs Digital micro-controlled relays Slingshot remote-control input On-board resistor ensures constant load on head Safemode power-off protection 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. To ensure safe and reliable performance, the Headbone features SafeMode whereby even when power is disconnected, the Headbone will automatically default to a head-1 to cabinet status, ensuring a constant and safe load on the amplifier. For large stages, the Headbone is equipped with Slingshot , an easy to use remote control system that employs a standard foot switch or contact closure that enables the guitarist to toggle the Headbone s status from his pedal board. This eliminates running guitar and speaker cables to-and-from the pedal board and the amplifier.
