Take control of your pedalboard! The Loopbone is a compact, easy to use switcher that allows the guitar player to insert, remove and combine two effect pedal chains with footswitch ease. This is particularly advantageous when using older pedals that can add noise and load problems while in the signal chain. As well, the Loopbone incorporates Radial's superb VariBoost variable gain power booster for a clean signal increase or as post-effects boost for soloing.
To ensure the natural tone of your instrument is maintained, no signal degrading op-amps or chips are used only 100% discreet components and our highly acclaimed Class-A circuit, which combine to achieve Radial's trademark transparency and exceptional dynamics. The Loopbone also features Radial's unique Drag control pickup load correction circuit that allows the restoration of a proper 'amplifier' impedance load which is lost when you plug a guitar into effect pedals or other buffered devices. In addition, the Loopbone brings even more to your pedalboard a separate 'always-on' tuner out circuit that allows 'on-the-fly' tuning without adding noise or load and perhaps the most innovative feature of all, Slingshot remote switching. Slingshot allows switching of amp channels or other features, even other devices such as the Radial Headbone or Cabbone switchers, from the Loopbone. Check out 'The Power of Slingshot' for details.
Plug your guitar into the input and your effects chains into the LOOP-1 SEND and RECEIVE and LOOP-2 SEND and RECEIVE jacks using standard 1/4" guitar cables. Radial's innovative 'Drag control adjusts to correct the pickup loading so your guitar can sound exactly like it does plugged straight into the amp. The always-on tuner out is buffered so it can't interact with the guitar signal going to the amps. The SlingShotremote switching output uses a standard 1/4" guitar cord to switch channels, reverb on other features on your amp or other devices, such as Radial's Headbone or Cabbone switchers.
