Radial Engineering Tonebone Headbone VT

Guitar amp head switcher for 2 valve-tube amps (PSU included)
MFR# R800 7082

Product Description

The Radial Headbone VT is an advanced amplifier switching device that allows two different guitar amp heads to be used with a single speaker cabinet. With the Headbone, one head could be used for rhythm while a second head could be used for soloing. With 100% discreet Class-A circuitry and choice of either buffered or un-buffered inputs, the Headbone will be of particular interest for players that demand the utmost in tonal performance.

Radial Headbone VT Features:
  • Switch 2 heads using one speaker cabinet
  • Slingshot™ remote control with any footswitch
  • Digital micro-controlled relays for failsafe switching
  • Choice of direct or buffered input
  • Models for tube amps (VT), solid-state (SS) or both (TS)
The Headbone's internal switching comprises a sequence of relays, photocells, and load resistors, all of which are controlled via a digitally programmed chip. Hit the footswitch and the Headbone toggles the guitar signal from one amp to the other, disconnects the speaker and diverts the signal to a load resister, reconnects the speaker to the second head and turns on the guitar, all in quick succession. The Headbone features SafeMode™ whereby even when power is disconnected; the Headbone will automatically default to 'head-1 to cabinet' status, ensuring a constant load on the amplifier.

Headbone comes equipped with Slingshot™, an easy-to-use switching system that uses any standard footswitch to toggle the Headbone's status remotely, from wherever the footswitch is located. Slingshot lets you keep the amp-to-speaker cables short and efficient and opens up new switching possibilities too.

The Headbone is available in 3 models: The VT for two valve/tube heads, the SS for two solid-state heads and the TS for tube to solid-state amp head switching.

Headbone – another Radial 'power tool' for serious guitarists.

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.
