Two Tube Heads, One Cab, No Hassles

The Radial Headbone is a power tool for serious guitarists (at Sweetwater, we've got plenty of those)! Headbone is a purpose-built switching device that lets you toggle between two different tube amp heads while using a single speaker cab. With a Headbone in your rig, you can deploy, for instance, your Marshall head for rhythm and your Mesa-Boogie for solos. The Headbone rocks 100% discrete Class A circuitry for phenomenal audio performance, a transformer-isolated signal path to eliminate ground loops, and your choice of buffered or un-buffered inputs to optimize the signal path. If you demand maximum tonal perfection onstage and in the studio, the Radial Headbone is a must-have.

Radial Headbone VT Tube Amp Head Switcher at a Glance:

  • Peace-of-mind and convenience
Works like magic (but it's not)

Being a Radial product, Headbone does its job flawlessly, gig after gig. Seems like magic, but what's under the hood is simply solid engineering. Headbone's internal switching consists of a series of relays, opto-couplers and load resistors, all sequenced via a digitally programmed chip. When you hit the footswitch, Headbone cleanly toggles your guitar signal from one amp to the other, disconnecting the speaker and diverting the signal to a load resister, before reconnecting the speaker to the second head and turning your guitar signal back on - all in an instant.

Peace-of-mind and convenience

During a gig, you've got plenty to think about. That's why Headbone features Radial's proprietary SafeMode, which automatically switches off your guitar input in the event of a power interruption. And to eliminate messy spaghetti cables onstage, the Headbone is equipped with Slingshot, a remote control port that lets you switch the Headbone using a standard (optional) footswitch or MIDI-controlled contact closure - thus eliminating long speaker cables and improving system efficiency.
