Radial Headbone VT Tube Amp Head Switcher with 100-watt RMS Rating | Proprietary Electro-mechanical Circuit and Remote Control Port With 2 x Senor Instrument Cable and Zorro Sounds Polishing Cloth
- The Radial Headbone VT is a specially designed switching device that lets you toggle between two tube amplifier heads using a single speaker cabinet. This provides the ability to experiment with different tonal options and perform without hauling two speaker cabinets to the gig
- The Radial Headbone is a power tool for serious guitarists 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
- 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
- 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

Learn About The Tube Amps And How They WorkChances are you’ve just bought your first Electric guitar and wish to find out all about guitar amps. Maybe you’re just curious as to how long amps have been around, how they work, or which to purchase. Whatever the reason, by reading this article, you’ll get answers.
History of the AmplifierGuitar amps have been around for roughly 70 years now, having first appeared during the 1930s. The earliest amps had very poor high treble and bass responses. This was improved over time, as amps became better developed. During the ‘60s, the guitar amp greatly evolved to where it is today when guitarists of that era experimented with deliberately overloading their amp to create Distortion. From that point on, most amps were provided with preamp distortion controls. Playing with distortion has since become an important part of Electric guitar playing
Types of AmplifiersThere are two types of amps: solid state and vacuum tube amps. Additionally, there are some amps that combine both solid state and tube technologies. Most amps, especially the least expensive ones, are solid state because they are lighter and easier to repair than tube amps are. A lot of guitarists, however, prefer the tube amp due to the tube amp’s analog sensitivity, which they claim makes tube amps sound better. While this is probably the case, most beginners can’t afford to shell out the $500-$1000 it costs to buy a good tube amp. That’s why solid state amps are actually a good buy in some cases.
Solid state and vacuum tube amps come in combo (speakers and head) packages or separately. Guitarists who aren’t picky can just buy the combo, while those who are picky can “mix and match” heads and speakers. This is useful for those looking to achieve a certain sound.
How Amps Work/What Watts MeanWithout going into a big, long, technical explanation, amplifiers basically take the vibration (sound) of the string(s) and amplify it, thereby increasing the sound. If you wish to find out more about the technical side of guitar amps, there are several good books that cover the topic pretty thoroughly.
Each amplifier has a certain number of watts. The higher the number of watts, the louder the sound produced by the amp is. Generally speaking, those who wish to play shows will want to get amplifiers with at least 30 watts, preferably at least 50 watts, especially if they plan on playing at larger venues.
