Vancouver, Canada (October 12, 2016)—Radial Engineering has shipped its new Tonebone Bumper, a compact instrument selector that connects up to four instruments to a single guitar amp, allowing users to select between them using a single footswitch.
According to Radial’s Jay Porter, “You plug in, advance the selector footswitch to the desired input and you are set to go. Super bright LEDs follow your every move to let you know which input is ready for use. The Bumper is super compact to fit on any pedalboard and automatically self-configures for the number of instruments you are using.”
The design uses Radial’s Class-A buffer circuit for the most natural tone, and each instrument can be tailored with Drag control load correction to compensate for the buffer and replicate the tone and feel as if connected directly to an amplifier.
When combining active and passive instruments, high output active ones can be adjusted using the trim control to reduce the sensitivity. This allows quick changeovers without having to adjust amp volumes or settings on the PA and monitors. In addition to the stage amp out, there is a separately buffered tuner out for quick on-the-fly adjustments.
