Canada’s Radial Engineering has another addition to its Tonebone range – the Headlight, a compact guitar amp selector.
The Headlight is able to sequentially activate up to four amps using a single footswitch. A second muting footswitch can be used for quiet on-stage tuning or switching instruments between songs. It can also be set up to turn all of the amps on at once.
According to Radial’s head of Artist Relations, Jim Rhodes: ‘Radial has been making guitar and amp switchers for years. But with more and more artists traveling on airplanes, concerns regarding extra baggage costs have become commonplace. We hear this regularly from the artists we work with and this resulted in our working to come up with a solution that is both compact and super easy to use. Depending on how many outputs are in use, the Headlight lets you advance through them using a single footswitch, while ignoring the ones that are not connected. This eliminates the typical four or five switches that are usually employed and reduces the size to accommodate a smaller pedalboard.’
