On-demand access to the combination effects loop and power booster lets you introduce effects and gives you that extra kick when needed.

There's even a separately buffered tuner out that lets you monitor and tune on the fly.

Bassbone - the ultimate command centre for serious bass players.


The Bassbone is extremely powerful, yet simple to operate. There are two instrument inputs and two separate signal channels with separate level and EQ sections for each. Output can go to an amp, mixer or both. Effects and boost can be brought in or out with the press of a footswitch.

The Bassbone is not limited to bass either. It works great with guitars, mandolins, dobros, banjos and other acoustic and electric instruments in addition to bass instruments.

Hook-up is straightforward whether you are using one bass or two. When using only one instrument, connecting to input-1 will still allow the use of all of channel-2's benefits and features with one press of the 'toggle' footswitch. The section below describes how the Bassbone can be used in various scenarios.

The Radial Bassbone comes equipped with a special 15-Volt power supply that provides greater headroom than typical 9V supplies. Connecting the power supply automatically turns the Bassbone on.
