[MUSIKMESSE] Radial JDX Direct-Drive amp simulator

Radial Engineering announces the JDX Direct-Drive, a guitar amplifier simulator that also acts as a direct box.

The Radial JDX Direct-Drive begins with a traditional ¼" guitar input and passive thru-put to feed a stage amp, followed by a dedicated tuner output that is buffered in order to eliminate loading on the pickup or noise from the quartz clock. The guitar signal is then passed through a series of filters to create Radial's signature JDX tone, which is modelled after the sound of a Shure SM57 in front of a Marshall 4-12 cabinet. The JDX Direct-Drive also offers two more settings, the first adding a typical Marshall tube head character to the signal path while the second brings in something similar to a Fender Twin combo.

The two amp tones can be further tailored using a presence switch to add extra sparkle. The amp tone signal exits the JDX Direct-Drive via either a ¼" guitar level output or a balanced XLR to feed the PA. The direct box output is outfitted with a 180° polarity reverse switch to help phase-align monitors with the stage amp along with a ground lift switch to help eliminate the nasty hum and buzz caused by ground loops. The JDX Direct-Drive may be powered using a standard 9V power supply or typical pedalboard power brick.

MAP for the JDX Direct-Drive is $199.99. Shipping will begin April 2016.
