Radial Ships JDX Direct Drive

Radial is shipping its new JDX Direct-Drive, a device that simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box, allowing the sound engineer to capture the tone right after the pedals and manage it before it hits the amps.

Vancouver, Canada (June 15, 2016)—Radial is shipping its new JDX Direct-Drive, a device that simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box, allowing the sound engineer to capture the tone right after the pedals and manage it before it hits the amps.

The Radial JDX Direct-Drive begins with a traditional quarter-inch guitar input and passive thru-put to feed a stage amp. This is then followed by a dedicated tuner output that is buffered in order to eliminate loading on the pickup or noise from the quartz clock. The guitar signal is then passed through a series of filters to create Radial’s JDX tone, modeled after the sound of a Shure SM57 in front of a Marshall 4-12 cabinet.

The JDX Direct-Drive also sports two more settings. The first adds a typical Marshall tube head character to the signal path while the second brings in something similar to a Fender Twin combo; the two amp tones can be further tailored.

The amp tone signal exits the JDX Direct-Drive via either a quarter-inch guitar level output or via a balanced XLR to feed the PA. The direct box output is outfitted with a 180° polarity reverse switch to help phase-align monitors with the stage amp along with a ground lift switch. The JDX Direct-Drive may be powered using a standard 9V power supply or typical pedalboard power brick.
