Steven Curtis Chapman"The first time a venue provided me with a Radial JDI I noticed an immediate difference, in clarity, presence and fullness. I went and bought my own the next day. I often get comments about how good my acoustic guitar sounds live and I know the JDI is a huge part of that. I can't imagine playing without it."
Sons of Icarus"The Radial Twin City splits my signal to both my amps perfectly! No noise, no fuss, just monster riffs with monster tone!"

April Wine"I love my Bones! Electric or Acoustic, Radial's Tonebone series are dependable, quiet, and superior to anything I have ever tried or used on the road, in the studio, and at home. Thank you for great tone!"
Gomez"The Radial JDX has made my onstage monitoring immeasurably easier. My guitar sound is much fuller and cleaner in the IEM system and out front our engineer loves blending it with the amp mic for a consistently 'thick' guitar sound."
Recording artist, legendary bluesman"The Radial BigShot ABY is great! I use it to switch between Buddy's wireless system and direct wired guitar before it goes into the Radial JD7 and his various amps. The Radial gear is the best." ~ Mark Messner - Stage manager
Avril Lavigne, Pink, Lindsay Lohan, Simple Plan, Sevendust, Hot Hot Heat, Fall Out Boy"The Radial JD7 made my guitar sounds so much thicker and punchier. I think the Drag feature should be built into everything ever made!"
Messenja, Toots and the Maytalls"Think of the Trimode as another two killer channels added to your amp. It's the most musical, best sounding OD pedal I have owned in more than 25 years, bar none. If you are concerned with tone, you have to check it out. The Dragster sounds like a cable plugged straight into the amp. My wireless has never sounded so good!"
Supertramp"YES! I wanted a clean Strat tone with more sustain, but retaining the inherent sparkle and shimmer of the guitar. The Elevator worked perfectly as a boost and made the sum of the parts better than anything on its own."
Los Lobos"I use my Radial Hot British on fly-in dates when using the big rig is impossible to bring along. My Tonebone Hot British rocks!"
Country Legend"I've found the Radial ProRMP Reamper useful many times in taking a second approach to my tone on a record. It also helps in live situations when applied with the SGI. The distance from my wireless rig to the pedal board and then to the amp is considerable. It helps keep my signal strong, clean and with great tone quality!"
Jana Kramer, Josh Gracin, Rosa Passos, Kristy Lee Cook, James Wesley"The elevator is awesome. I dialed in just enough gain to drive the front end of my 1964 Fender Bassman to a sweet just overdriven spot. Sounds great, harmonically complex and just enough gain to make my guitar sing. In addition, I've used it as a buffer for my pedalboard. The drag and gain settings are really great. They allow me to keep my signal true and full all the way to my amp. No tone loss. The Radial Elevator is like a swiss army knife for your rig. It rocks!"
Genesis, Phil Collins"The Tonebone Plexitube is the most versatile distortion pedal I own. It's also the quietest I've ever used. I find all Radial products to be designed with sound quality, easy operation and durability in mind."

Master shredder, recording artist, Parker clinician"Tonebone made it easy to create an abundance of different tones with either the Hot British or Classic 'bone pedals. The sounds are huge and real! These pedals are a must have for all guitar players."
"The PZ-Select is the brain of my whole rig! It's made life so simple dealing with hum, phase, clunky cables, switching and fx loops... and fixes all of those issues! The PZ-Select is an incredible pedal!"
Steve Vai Band"The JDX is the simplest way to get a true, no-bleed signal from my amp. I mix that with a mic'd cab and have the best possible balance of my live sound. Love it."
April Wine, David Henman Band"I Love my Tonebone pedals! They give me the overdrive and distortion flavours that I have been seeking for most of my career. Lush feedback and sustain is effortless and there's more gain on hand than you will ever need."
Havok"The JDX accurately emulates the sound of a perfectly-placed microphone without any of the downsides. With the JDX there is zero chance of excessive low-end woof, or ear-piercing treble. The tones that come out of this thing are clean, articulate, and easy for any engineer to work with. Like all Radial products, this box is versatile and built like a tank!"
Back Door Slam guitarist, singer-songwriter"As a player who uses the volume control on my guitar a lot, as well as changing pick attack, it's important for me to have overdrive sounds that respond to dynamics. The Trimode is wonderfully touch-sensitive. What I love most is that it just doesn't sound like an overdrive pedal at all - it sounds like a really great amp. It's fantastic! I can't say enough good things about it."
Guitarist, Hunter Hayes"I've been through just about every switcher on the market from the very cheap to the most expensive and in every respect I've found the Twin City ABY to be the best option on the market. It solves all of the common problems that arise from complicated instrument rigs."
Guitarist-songwriter-producer"My annoying inability to compromise has lead me to some odd places in music, and fortunately, has also lead me to the ultimate no-compromise tonal solutions from Radial. Hooray for all us Canucks!"
OneRepublic"The things we ask our switchers and DIs to do are unfair and unrealistic. Every part of our show depends our units being more flexible and more reliable than anything else. That's why we use Radial."
Sting, the Pretenders"Fantastic! As soon as I plugged the Trimode in, I knew it would work for me."
Artist"The Texas is hands down the most feature rich overdrive pedal I've ever used. In combination with the dual volume controls, you've got a pedal that is just wired to jump from crisp spanky rhythms to just the perfect amount richer solos with all the boost you could ever need. I LOVE this pedal!!!"
Roomful of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Witherspoon, Bob Dylan"The Trimode is great! I especially love how it turns a solid state amp into a great sounding tube amp. With quite a few of my amp set-ups it really works out perfectly."
Rod Stewart, Idina Menzel"The Radial JX62 is the perfect solution for using multiple guitars and amps. Works flawlessly with my wireless systems and I love the effects loop to run out to my pedal board onstage. I noticed an improvement in my guitar tone right away!"
Grammy award winning guitarist, winner - Guitar Player 'Best Guitarist' for 5 years"As soon as I plugged the Tonebone Classic in, I could not believe how quiet it was. I was very impressed. It is both responsive and musical. I can honestly say that I truly appreciate the Tonebone and feel that it is a valid addition to the very fabric of the distortion guitar sound. This is a rare find."
Guitarist - Man on Fire, Virtual Strangers"I use the Plexitube for all kinds of sessions and gigs. It's incredible! Many manufacturers use the term 'stack in a box', but the Plexitube is the real deal. I've never had so much control over my tone. I'm truly addicted."
Jazz guitarist - Shapiro Project"Radial's Tonebone Classic is perfect! It is transparent, very dynamic and sensitive to your playing, so it can go from very clean to distorted depending on how hard you pick your guitar. I love it!"
Chick Corea, Grammy award winner - Elektric Band"I recently did some recording with Chick Corea where we used the Hot British to record direct. As skeptical as I am about direct devices for guitar sounds, the Radial Tonebone Hot British surprised me with its variety and quality of tone. Chick loved it and so did I. It sounds great! Well done guys!"
EMI / Sanctuary / Virgin recording artist"I get sent all kinds of gear for free but never accept it. I prefer to buy the equipment I use. I bought my Tonebone Classic."

Elvis Presley, John Denver, Jerry Lee Lewis"Workhorse is a great addition to our recording studio and we look forward to a long working relationship with Radial Engineering."
Bihlman Brothers, Emmy award winner - soundtrack"The London just plain kicks ass! The distortion is creamy and responsive. The bypass and individual volume controls are genius. Roll off the guitar volume, it cleans up beautifully without losing the high end us Strat players love! You get 3 channels with massive creamy distortion, crunch for funky rhythms and in bypass mode you're back to your pure amp tone!"

The Hellecasters, Fairport Convention, Gerry Rafferty, Elton John, Warren Zevon, Bonnie Rait"The new Radial Elevator is a pedal that successfully achieves what others were designed to do but never quite made the grade. This one enhances your overall sound with no discernible change in tone between normal and boosted outputs! After all the years of searching... no need to look further. This is it!"
Annihilator"The Hot British gives me many different "degrees" of warmth and distortion that I need for crunchy, yet tight, rhythm metal guitar playing. For soloing, I can find various settings that give me distinctly different solo sounds, from clean and "bitey", to messy and ear-piercing... all this from one pedal. The Hot British is amazing."

Australian jazz guitarist, composer and educator - 'The guitarist's guitarist'"In 2008 the search was on for a distortion pedal after years of going straight into the amp with no pedals whatsoever. I tried many of the current crop of distortion stomp boxes and then bumped into the Tonebone Classic. The search was over in that instant... it was juicy, musical and dynamic, just how I like it."
Loggins & Messina, Poco, Buffalo Springfield"I use Radial gear in my studio on a daily basis and I'm here to say, it performs flawlessly!"
Aerosmith"Since adding the Radial JD7, SGI and Headbone to my rig, my sound on stage has never been better!"
Chicken Foot"The Reamp is the recording guitar player's best friend. It works great with bass and keyboards too. There is no other device out there that can take a recorded DI performance and have the amp receive it exactly as it would if you were plugging your guitar, or, bass straight in the input."
Sweeney Todd, Bryan Adams, Prism, Darby Mills, Jethro Tull"The Tonebone Hot British is simply AWESOME!! I dial back my amps gain and bring up the Hot British 12AX7 tube drive for just the right amount of squeeze I need. It always sounds better with my Tonebone in front !!"
Guitarist - Hellicasters"The London is a very versatile overdrive/distortion pedal, capable of producing sweet, round sustain, nasty aggressive punch, and any degree in between."

Alpha Blondy, Inuendo, Djul Project"The Radial Tonebone Trimode has become an essential part of my pedalboard and guitar sound.

The best darn musician in Canada!"Today, most of our gigs are 'fly-ins' so we travel light. With the Radial JDX, amp head and guitar I feel great knowing that my tone out front is consistent night after night. Best of all, with the JDX I no longer need an amp mic on stage, so bleed from other instruments is no longer a problem. Thanks Radial for making this great little tool!"
Metallica"This box (Tonebone Hot British) is very deserving of the word Hot--I definitely love my Bone!"
Beck, Sting, Todd Rundgren"The Switchbone is a must have for anyone needing an AB-Y pedal to switch between two amps.

This pedal is a complete winner."

Solo Artist"When the Power Tube pre's showed up at the studio, I immediately plugged them into my 500 series rack and went to town. If a pre can be "fun", the Power Tube is it! They can play clean, and they can play dirty. Replace the tube with the supplied tube from the Radial pedals and drive that baby into the red and beyond! Love 'em."
Creed and Alterbridge"For years I've been trying to combine all of my favorite tones on stage without carrying a ton of amps and cabinets on stage. The Headbone helps me get there. Thank God I found it. I only wish I had it years ago... I love my Headbone!"

Whenever I perform live I always send the feed from the JDX to the house (instead of micing my cabs) and I'm always really happy with the results."

Bette Midler, Chick Corea, George Duke, Gino Vanelli"The Texas is a great pedal! In fact two pedals in one. I love how it can clean up if I back off on the guitar or even just lighten up on my pick attack, and then when I dig in; it's huge! It has become an indispensable part of my pedalboard."
Justin Timberlake, Prince, Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie, Gladys Knight, Janet Jackson"Radial Tonebone pedals are the must-have tools for musicians that are serious about their tone. Give me my Plexitube lead tone or give me death... nothing else will do!"
April Wine"The Headbone works exactly like I hoped it would. I can now switch back & forth between the Marshall 2000 and the Peavey 5150 for greater tone options while giving me an instant back-up should ever an amp go down. After 55 gigs, the Headbone has worked flawlessly. Kudos to Radial for inventing such a useful device." ~ Brit Fader, Guitar Tech
Alter Bridge, Slash"The Radial Switchbone is a fantastic addition to my rig. It allows me to run my two favorite amps at the same time without compromising my tone. The mid boost is the coolest feature. I turn it on when I need a lead to sing and sustain without thinning out my sound. If only I had this pedal 20 years earlier!"
Journey, Santana"Tonebone pedals sound great! They are incredibly responsive, dynamic and warm. Best of all, they react like a real amp-channel. Perfect for cleaner amps that need that extra kick!"
Sebastian Bach"The Radial J48 is the direct box I use to get my signal into my DAW. I then use the X-Amp for Reamping™. This set up lets me out from behind the guitar and bass so I can do some engineering. It gives you the option of choosing the right amp for the track. These are both super cool products!"
Chevelle"The Tonebone Plexitube is a well sorted Distortion pedal. Not only do I get great sounds for guitar but I also found it works great on bass too. A killer, heavy, grinding bass tone is sometimes all I need to kick start a whole new song idea."
The Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive"I a-a-a-absolutely love the Tonebone pedals. I have tried them out extensively and will be incorporating them into my stage setup. They are truly toneful, expressive and totally rock."
Leading Latin Guitarist"The Plexitube is a superb overdrive. I have a collection of at least seven overdrive/distortion pedals in my closet and that's where they will stay because they don't compare to the Plexitube. Not only does it give you enough gain and balls when you need it, but it's sensitive to your playing and the nuances and tone ring out perfectly. Us guitarists are always searching for that Holy Grail overdrive and I think I found it."
Robert Randolph and the Family Band"Before we bought the Radial JD7, each time I added an amp the impedance changed, the level dropped and it messed with my tone. With it, I can run as many amps as I like and it keeps my tone true. I use it in the studio and with my live rig. The Radial JD7 is phenomenal."
Joe Diffie, Barbara Mandrell, Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan"Most pedals are NOT True Bypass so they suck tone in a major way. The Radial BigShot MIX came to the rescue. From the 1st note, my tone & attack was restored as if I were plugging straight in to my amp."
Allman Brothers Band"The Switchbone is an essential part of my live rig with Gregg Allman and in many of my session dates."

Our Lady Peace"I had been running tracks out of Pro Tools and processing them through stomp-boxes but the results were hit and miss. Then I heard about the EXTC 500. So great!! Now the tracks are always at the proper impedance and the whole phase flip for different pedals is genius. I don't see how I lived without it!"

Marillion, the Wishing Tree"We've just finished recording the fifteenth Marillion album "Happiness is the Road" and I used my JD7 to split my signal between different amps and to Reamp™ the guitar throughout the recording process. We also use an SGI Studio Guitar Interface to enable us to play overdubs from the control room without loss of clarity and tone. Your products are outstanding."
Billy Idol"As always Radial has done it again. The JDV is a direct box on steroids. Whether I am recording a DI guitar or the high output of an active bass guitar, nothing gets it done as well as my JDV. A totally transparent signal with just the right amount of air...I have grown to trust Radial products like no other company I know."

"The Radial JD7 Injector is by far the finest guitar distro and Reamp I have
ever come across. In fact it's the only one I've ever used that works
cleanly with no hum or loading to the original signal. It Is an
indispensable studio tool for me."
Doobie Brothers co-founder, guitarist, songwriter"On stage, I have a Radial JDI direct box, SGI studio guitar interface and two Headbone VTs. The Headbones gives me easy access to all of my amps and I only have to carry two cabinets. I feel that Radial gives me the transparent tone I love and the reliability I need when we play"
Godsmack, Another Animal"Hands down the Tonebone Plexitube is the finest overdrive / distortion pedal I have ever used."
Guitar Player Magazine 2006 Guitar Hero winner"Tonebone are by far some of the finest pedals you can get your hands on. Along with being the cleanest and best sounding pedals on the market they are also made with extreme craftsmanship and are made to withstand the road abuse of extreme touring."
UFO, Alice CooperThe Tonebone has a real natural, transparent sound. It doesn't thin out your tone like a lot of the transistor distortion pedals I've tried. Also, it doesn't mush out like some of the tube distortions out there, just a nice smooth tone. I'll get a lot of use out of my Classic in the studio and on stage."
Def Leppard, Whitesnake"Tonebones don't sound like regular distortion pedals; they're smooth, professional... no rough edges. They respond like a quality amplifier. You hear all the nuances. With Tonebones, getting rich, big tones is easy."
Accept"I am loving the TEXAS OVERDRIVE ! It's the smoothest overdrive pedal I have ever tried, works great for solos!"
Lamb Of God"I use a very high gain, dual amp setup and the LAST thing I need is more noise. The Twin City lets me run both of my Boogies simultaneously and keeps things responsive AND quiet. Now that it is in my rig, I don't know how I managed without it! No more cheap ABY boxes for me... I've spent a lot of time dialling in my sound and Radial keeps it perfect!"
Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Steve Earle, Gomez, Mark Knopfler, John PrineWhat a great, practical and versatile pedal! True bypass or the famous Radial buffer, plus the most excellent Drag Control---for matching pickup impedance---in a boost pedal that also features a mid-boost circuit just like the much loved Switchbone. I'm a small vintage tube amp guy, and the Elevator gives everything from subtle clean boost for tasteful solos, to slamming the front end of the amp for saturated over the top distortion---and in between. Versatile and flexible---and it sounds great.
