CAB-BONE - another creative tool for making better music from the Tonebone tone fanatics at Radial.
CAB-Bone switches between two speaker cabinets with one amplifier head allowing the guitarist to transition from say, a Fender 2x12" open back, to a Marshall 4x12" slant with one foot stomp! The CAB-Bone employs High-performance gold contact relays to switch the amp's speaker output to either cabinet without adding color or compromising your sound.
And CAB-Bone is safe switching is controlled by a timer IC that manages a ramped connection overlap. This ensures a constant load on the output, a major concern with tube amps. With SafeMode the input signal connects to output-1 automatically if power is ever lost.
To reduce "cable spaghetti" on stage, CAB-Bone is equipped with our Slingshot remote controled switching system. Slingshot allows any standard footswitch to control switching from your pedalboard or wherever you like, keeping the amp-to- cabinet cables short and efficient. Slingshot can also switch amp channels, effects or other Slingshot equipped devices, to get those perfect tone combinations quickly and with one click instead of a tap dance routine!
Like all Radial products, the CAB-Bone is built tough to handle the road:
14 gauge steel, baked enamel finish, high performance parts throughout. You get all of this in a compact enclosure that is ultra quiet and completely transparent to the tone of your amp.
Plug your guitar into your amp as normal but instead of connecting the amp output into a speaker cabinet, plug it in to the CAB-Bone's 'FROM AMP' jack. Now plug one of your two cabinets into the 'SPEAKER-1' jack and the other cabinet into the 'SPEAKER-2' jack. Use only heavy duty SPEAKER cables with 1/4" connectors. You are now set up to toggle your amp safely between the two cabinets.
Because the CAB-Bone comes equipped Radial's innovative Slingshot feature, it can be switched remotely, or itself can switch other devices (like amp channels or effects) remotely, or both!
