Radial Engineering JX42 Guitar Selector – No Longer Available

Guitar selector, 4 inputs with AB amp isolated outputs
MFR# R800 6505

Product Description

The Radial JX-42 is a compact guitar and amp switcher made to handle up to four guitars and two amps simultaneously.

Designed for concert touring, the JX-42 begins with four radio-style switches that immediately turn the previous channel off when the new channel is selected. These are complimented with easy-to-see LEDs for visual feedback on dark stages. To ensure the quietest switching possible, opto-resistive couplers are employed that ramp up and down the signal, eliminating any popping that could otherwise occur. This is particularly important when using the JX-42 with high gain amps. Connecting the optional JR5 footswitch enables remote control over input channels.

Inside, Radial's award-winning 100% discrete class-A buffering circuit ensures absolute fidelity is maintained. Each input channel also sports a recessed dual-function 'set and forget' potentiometer that can be assigned as either a level control to match wireless systems or be set to Drag™ for precise load correction when using magnetic pickups. Drag Control replicates the tone and feel as if connected directly to a guitar amp. There are two main stage amp outputs. These are transformer isolated to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops. Selecting the amps may be done using a front panel AB selector switch or by connecting the optional JR2 remote footswitch via a TRS jack. Adding the JR2 footswitch also lets you mute the amps for quiet on-stage tuning.

Made from 15 gauge steel, the JX-42 follows Radial's trademark bookend design to create a protective zone around the switches and knobs and safeguard against the harsh environment of professional touring. The unique I-Beam construction adds tremendous rigidity to protect the internal circuit board from torque which could lead to premature cold solder joints. Optional rack ears allow one or two JX-42s to be rack-mounted in a single 19" rack space.

These features combine to make Radial JX-42 a great choice for stage and studio alike.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
