Re-amping Made Easy!

What do you do to make your guitar track thicker? Re-amp! The Radial Reamp JCR is the latest incarnation of the fabled John Cuniberti Reamp products, and it is ready for all your re-amping needs. Why use just one amp on a track? Why not take the dry guitar signal and put it through another amp, or new effects, and re-amp it? With the Radial Reamp JCR it is easier than ever. The JCR takes care of your impedance, phase and connectivity issues, making re-amping quick and simple.

Radial Reamp JCR Passive Re-amping Device at a Glance:
  • Get more out of your tracks with re-amping
  • Input Control and Noise-free Output
  • Solid construction
Get more out of your tracks with re-amping

With the Radial Reamp JCR you can take a pre-recorded guitar track, and send it through a second distortion pedal and amplifier and then slightly delay the track to add a thick doubling effect. You could also use the Reamp JCR from a voice track to a distortion pedal to ad some grit to a performance.

Input Control and Noise-free Output

The Radial Reamp JCR features include balanced line level input, a custom USA-made transformer that converts your signal impedance for use with guitar amps, three-position filter switch, 180-degree polarity reverse to bring your signal into phase, and ground lift options for noise-free operation.

Solid construction

As with all Radial products, the Reamp JCR is built like a tank to provide years of trouble-free performance. A welded I-beam internal skeleton provides a separate housing for maximum protection against external forces, which may cause stress on the PC board assembly while the outside bookend cover provides a protective zone for the switches, potentiometer and connectors. A full bottom no-slip pad performs double duty by keeping the Radial Reamp JCR from sliding around when placed on a vibrating amplifier while also providing electrical and mechanical isolation.

Radial Reamp JCR Passive Re-amping Device Features:
  • Custom transformer
  • Passive design
  • 14-Gauge steel welded I-beam construction
  • Ground lift switch - recessed to prevent accidental use
  • Phase inverter
  • Mute switch
  • Tone control
  • XLR and TRS inputs
  • TS output
Re-amping is made simple with the Radial Reamp JCR!

Big time saver

First of all Radial gear is top notch. If I didn't already know where it was made I'd swear that it was made in Germany. The level of quality and attention to detail on all the Radial products I own and have uses has always impressed me. Sound wise it's clear as a bell and dead silent. I have no issues with output level like I've had with certain other manufactures which will remain nameless. Also after using a couple different active reamp boxes I prefer the passive version. It's much more quiet. This box isn't at all expensive and works great. I can now reamp at home instead of running to the main studio. For me this box is a big time saver. I live in a bit of a noisy location. I prefer to work from home but with trains and trucks around most of the day the noise can ruin a good take. Now I can record my guitars and bass direct and wait until all the train and truck traffic dies down for the day and reamp at my convenience. If there is session ruining noise when reamping I just have to hit rewind and reamp again since I already recorded my great take direct earlier in the day! That saves me a lot of time and frustration. The only thing that I would have liked to see done differently was the plastic jacks. I would have preferred to see all metal ones. However the plastic isn't that cheap stuff you find in other brands and I seriously doubt they will wear out any time soon under normal use. The bottom line is if you have a situation similar to mine of just want the flexibility to reamp at a later time get one of these. You won't be sorry.

Very Accurate

Tracking guitars, I always want to have the option of coming back later to tweak the amp tone and try different mic positions, so I always record a direct in. Reamping with a line signal is a no-no because of the noise, so I decided to get this. My first order of business was to figure out where unity level was, and for my unit, it was 4.5 ticks away from maximum. Being able to dial in the perfect level and having the visual indicator to be able to set it again is a great feature. Second thing I did was to run a few tracks from my DAW to the interface -> TRS -> XLR input of the Reamp, and then out through the TS -> back into the interface direct to see just how accurate the signal is. With the ground lift on and the phase inverted, I was able to get close to a perfect copy of the original waveform. (Yes, with the phase switch off, the phase of the wave coming back in was inverted, so make sure to run some tests!) Running the tracks through my amp, I was very happy to hear very low noise, especially with the ground lift switch engaged, as I've been dealing with ground loop issues during recording and reamping. In my DAW, the copied signal had no noticeable latency when I zoomed in to compare the original direct vs the new signal. Best of all, when I inverted the phase of the copied track and played it with the original, there was barely any sound being played from my DAW which indicated the fact that the waveforms were close enough to each other that inverting one signal would cancel out so much of the other. I'm very impressed by how accurate this is, and sets my mind at ease because reamping is no longer a compromise on tone!

solid unit with various uses

This unit is not only for guitar re-amping. I have used it to eliminate ground hum when sending an aux feed to a mixing board for a PA, and the volume control allows new interface uses.

The perfect studio guitarist!

For 2 years I was thinking of buying a REAMP. I even wired my console with a patch point to an XLR with REAMP engraved on it. But... still, I mic amps, get sounds and record. Sometimes with a DI, but usually not. I am a huge believer in committing to a sound, after all I was raised on 24 tracks. Finally, with an important session, and time an issue I called my guy at Sweetwater and said send me one. Like most parents say when they have a kid, they wish they did it sooner... same thought here. I got a great direct sound for the session, some amp sounds for his headphones and all was well. Next day I edited the takes made a comp and sent out the guitar through my labeled patch point into the reamp and it was absolutely transformational. How could I have waited so long to record this way? I got the perfect tone, placed the mic perfectly taking the time I needed, playing select parts to make sure the amp reacted appropriately under each dynamic, and when it was all done, command + spacebar... and finished. Perfection! It's the only way I will ever record guitar from this moment forward, and I have been doing this for 25 years! Honestly, a paradigm shift. Amazing!
