New York, NY (February 18, 2016)—Radial’s new Shotgun is a guitar signal distribution amplifier capable of driving up to four amps simultaneously without introducing hum and buzz—a typical occurrence due to ground loops.
Designed for Hi-Z instruments, the Shotgun may be set up for mono use with one input driving four outputs or in stereo with two inputs driving two pairs of outputs. Each output is individually buffered to lower the impedance and reduce susceptibility to noise. This also allows for longer signal drives, especially helpful on large stages and in expansive venues.
Default Output-1 provides a safety ground path to the guitar while Output-2, -3 and -4 each are transformer-isolated, combating ground loop hum present when using multiple amplifiers on stage; this is supplemented with individual ground lift switches. When used dual as a 1 x 2 splitter, Radial's Constant Load Correction circuit regulates the impedance on the guitar, thus tone remains consistent.
The Shotgun employs a standard 9V power supply or connection from a pedalboard power brick. Top-mounted 180-degree polarity reverse switches are included, too.
