Mixer, Buffer, and FX Loop

The Radial Tonebone Mix-Blender has a mixer, buffer, and effects loop, all rolled into one. With the Mix-Blender, you can mix two instruments or effects together and send the mixed signal out through Mix-Blender's mixer-style effects loop, activated with the onboard footswitch, for further processing. Mix-Blender works great with guitar, keys, and bass, and Radial spec'd it with two Class A buffers for optimal fidelity. The buffers serve to lower impedance to drive your signal longer distances without noise. At Sweetwater, we're finding a myriad of sonic possibilities for the Radial Tonebone Mix-Blender. You will, too.

Radial Tonebone Mix-Blender at a Glance:
  • Will it blend? Definitely
  • The possibilities are endless
Will it blend? Definitely

Fitted with individual volume controls on each channel, the Radial Tonebone Mix-Blender lets you mix its two inputs to taste. Think of the possibilities: mix two different pickups on your acoustic guitar, run two pedals in parallel - say, a distortion pedal and a chorus, or set up two different instruments for quick changeovers onstage.

The possibilities are endless

A dry-wet blend control lets you introduce effects pedals into your signal with precision, while preserving the tonal integrity of your instrument. Imagine adding just a taste of overdrive to your bass - without compromising the low end. How about exciting your acoustic guitar by mixing in a hint of distortion? Bleeding in some phase shift or chorus to your Hammond organ patch? You get the idea. With the Radial Tonebone, the possibilities for new tonal textures are endless.

Radial Tonebone Mix-Blender Features:
  • Works great with guitar, keys, and bass
  • Mix 2 instruments or FX together
  • Lets you mix in FX while preserving the sound of your instrument
  • 2 Class A buffered inputs, each with individual level controls
  • Mixer-style FX loop activated with onboard footswitch
  • Blend control lets you mix in effects with precision
Create unique effects with the Radial Tonebone.

Required Equipment

If you own one of Gibson's stereo guitars such as the ES-345 stereo, you need this pedal if you dont want to use two amplifiers. The effects loop also allows you to use your mono effects pedals on BOTH of your pickups. This pedal should come with these guitars!

Works Very Well

I wanted to add a loop to my Fender Blues Jr; after much hassle trying and protect the sound of the amp (I wanted it to sound the same with a loop), we gave up. I did my research and I bought one of these. Having the Blend and Level options, this Loop gives me pretty much the same options as the loop on my '83 Fender Concert. It is powered, that's not an issue for me, my pedal board has free power to handle that. NOTE: if you don't have a lot of 9v power warts-blocks, buy one of theirs. I had to try out a few to find one that would power it up. It is interesting that even though your connecting all the pedals to the front end of the amp, somehow, the overdrives and such really act and sound the same as a true built in effects loop and the modulation effects still ring true, or at least true enough. Not sure how they get this done but it works like a proper effects loop. If you need a loop and you'd rather not have one installed into your amp, this is the way too go. As always Sales Rep. Ty Heimann called before and after to ensure that I was happy with the transaction.
