Get the most out of your tube heads
With the Headbone in your rig, you can access your choice of amplifier with a single footswitch, giving you the ability to easily select between one amplifier for rhythm, and another one for solos. To eliminate long cables running across the stage, you can switch the Headbone remotely with a Slingshot input that allows you to connect any standard footswitch or MIDI controlled contact closure, further streamlining your setup on stage. For the ultimate amp-switching rig you can combine the Headbone with the Tonebone Twinline, which will allow you to switch your effects loop at the same time, so your effects pedals follow the active amplifier.

"Whether I'm switching heads on the fly or song to song, I'm always confident when my Headbone VT switcher by Tonebone is in line. The switching is flawless and there is absolutely no tone loss. A great piece of gear!"
"Since adding the Radial JD7, SGI and Headbone to my rig, my sound on stage has never been better!"
John Legend, Jill Scott, Common, Kid Cudi
"I use the Headbone VT amp switcher from Tonebone to switch between my Mesa Lonestar head and an identical spare head. This enables me to have both heads fired up and plugged into a single cab. In the case of an amp issue I can switch over to the spare with the push of a button and not worry about an amp warming up or repositioning mics. It works perfectly for my needs, and like all Radial gear, it is built to last."
Singer, Guitarist, Solo Artist
"The Headbone VT has been a mainstay in my live rig for a good while now and I love the flexibility it provides! Running 2 amp heads into 1 cabinet really opens up the tone possibilities and allows for an easy switch if one of my amps goes down. "
