NORTHSTAR Modern Country Rock
RAD-R800 7017 00
  • Powerful overdrive with tone-shaping
  • True-Bypass switching retains your tone
  • Class-A Power Booster provides +24dB of clean gain
  • Built-in effects loop activates with booster

Designed for today’s new breed of rock-oriented country players, the North-Star is both an overdrive and a high-output power booster combined in one versatile and compact pedal.

The overdrive circuit in the North-Star is capable of providing an array of tones, varying from subtle chunk to singing distortion. The Drive and Level controls provide adjustments over the amount of distortion and the output to your amp, so you can balance how much drive you get from the pedal vs. breakup from your amp. Combined with a variable Class-A Booster capable of +24dB of clean gain, you can use the North-Star to dial in the perfect not-too-dirty, not-too-clean semi-broken up tone, or push your sound to the extreme. Used on its own, the Booster section can provide easy transitions from rhythm to lead, as the separate Boost footswitch automatically engages the built-in effects loop, bringing your favourite analog delay pedal into the signal chain.

 

The North-Star is built in a compact enclosure to save space on a busy pedalboard, and is powered via a standard 9V power supply or a multi-pedal power brick. 14-gauge steel construction and high-quality components ensure it will hold up against the rigors of the road, and true-bypass switching retains the pure tone of your instrument when not in use.

Texas Pro Blues Rock Revival
RAD-R800 7027 00
  • Versatile Overdrive with multiple tonal possibilities
  • High output Class-A power booster
  • Overdrive and Boost operate separately or in combination
  • Built-in effects loop activates with booster

The Texas-Pro is a compact but extremely powerful dual-function pedal, providing a versatile overdrive circuit as well as a high output signal booster. These two features can be used on their own or in combination, giving you a wide range of tonal options, with the power to cut through when soloing or hit the front end of your amp harder for natural sustain and harmonics.

The overdrive section is equipped with a three-position Range switch, which tailors the response to produce vintage, modern, and high-gain overdrive tones. This allows you to choose between bluesy textures similar to an Ibanez TS9®, a modern rock feel like a Fulltone OCD®, or aggressive in-your-face saturation. Individual Drive, Tone, and Level controls allow you to further dial in the settings that best suit your guitar and amp setup. The Overdrive is followed by a 100% discrete, pure Class-A Boost circuit with a variable level control that can provide up to +22dB of clean gain. This can be used to let your solos sing out or to push the front end of a smaller amp harder, causing it to prematurely break up. Both the Overdrive and the Boost utilize true-bypass switching, which ensures that you retain the pure tone of your guitar as if it were plugged directly into your amplifier. For additional functionality, a built-in effects loop provides the ability to connect delays or other pedals, activating them when the Boost footswitch is engaged. This makes transitioning from rhythm to lead quick and efficient, with just a single foot-stomp required.

The Texas-Pro is housed in a compact chassis that is small enough for any pedalboard, while still able to handle the rigors of the road with 14-gauge steel construction and heavy-duty footswitches and connectors. Standard 9V power supplies and multi-pedal power bricks can be used to power the Texas-Pro.

TS9 and OCD are registered trademarks of Ibanez® and Fulltone®. Radial is not associated with these companies and only uses their names to reference the type of sound created.

Tonebone PLEXITUBE Tube Distortion Pedal
RAD-R800 7025 00
* The best 'Marshall in a pedal' of all time!
* Delivers clean, rhythm and lead in one pedal
* True bypass clean for natural tone
* Insert loop on lead channel for effects

The Plexitube™ is a two channel tube distortion that combines the natural warmth and harmonic generation of a 12AX7 tube with the control and saturation of our unique multi-stage solid-state drive circuit. Combine this amazing front-end with our unique passive-interactive tone controls and the Plexitube is able to deliver four generations of over-the-top Marshall tones from a single pedal.
Designed to enhance on-stage functionality, the Plexitube features two distinct distortion channels for on-the-fly transitioning between rhythm and lead settings. Channel-1 has been optimized for rhythm with huge chunky rhythm tones and scooped out mids for a thunderous wall-of-sound and complete world domination. Channel-2 is optimized to produce razor-sharp cut for solos and sustaining mids that are so smooth, they can make a grown man cry. This is augmented with individual voicing and contour controls for each channel that let you dial in the optimal tone to suit your guitar and playing style.
When the Plexitube is switched off, true-bypass connectivity ensures the natural tone of your guitar goes directly to your amp without obstruction or a tone robbing load. And when activated, photocell switching assures smooth pop-free actuation even when used with high gain amps. There's even an effects loop that can automatically turn your delay on when you switch channels for leads. No tap dancing required!
The Radial Tonebone Plexitube takes metal guitar one step beyond anything you have experienced so far. God Save the Queen!

Hot British V9 Metal Maximum Gain
RAD-R800 7022 00
  • High gain Plexi-style distortion
  • Powerful tone-shaping EQ controls
  • Compact size saves pedalboard space
  • Standard 9V power supply operation

The Hot-British V9™ is an updated solid-state version of the venerable Tonebone Hot British™ tube distortion pedal. Packed into a pedalboard-friendly compact chassis, the Hot-British V9 retains the same soul and character of the original, with the ability to be powered by standard 9V pedalboard power supplies.

Under the hood, a Class-A buffering circuit gives you the feel of a true-bypass pedal with the added benefits of greater noise rejection and lower impedance, allowing you to drive pedal chains and longer cable runs efficiently. The Hot-British V9 also features multiple tone shaping stages to provide you with total control over your sound. The Drive control sets the overall distortion amount and input level, so you can apply a touch of grit and tube-like saturation, or crank it up for screaming lead tones. Next up, the Contour knob augments the character of the distortion, to vary it between warm, fat textures and brighter tones with more 'air'.

The post-distortion EQ controls provide a powerful way to shape your overall sound, allowing you to tailor the Hot-British V9 to best match your guitar and amplifier. Low and High EQ knobs are complemented by 3-position Top End and Mid Boost switches, so dialing in the perfect tone is a snap. Lastly, a Level control sets the output of the Hot-British V9 to your amplifier. The Hot-British V9 is compact and takes up little valuable pedalboard space, yet it is built extremely rugged, with heavy-duty components and a 14-gauge steel enclosure. One listen and you’ll be blown away by how a device this small can produce such huge tone.

Tonebone Bones Texas
RAD-R800 7110 00
* Vintage TS9, OCD and high gain settings in one!
* Two channels let you toggle from rhythm to lead
* Ultra compact form factor fits any pedalboard
* Super hot output for plenty of drive

The Texas is a power-packed overdrive pedal that has been meticulously designed to deliver three generations of overdrive to suit any style of play. This is enhanced with two channels that let you seamlessly switch between fat crunchy rhythm and powerful sustaining lead tones.
The design begins with a unique class-A buffering circuit that retains the natural feel and responsiveness of the guitar. This delivers the performance of 'true bypass' connectivity while lowering the impedance and susceptibility to noise. This enables the Texas to efficiently drive multiple pedals and longer cables when used on concert stages. A three position bite switch on each channel lets you set the character: In the bottom off position, the Texas delivers the tone of a vintage Ibanez TS9 conjuring up the bluesy signature sounds of players like Stevie Ray Vaughan. In the middle, the Texas adds excitement with the tone and dynamics of the popular Fulltone OCD for more of the Eddie Van Halen modern rock feel. Set to maximum, the Texas elevates your sound to a super high-gain modified TS9 for those who crave the ultimate metal tones of bands like Metallica.
For maximum on-stage efficiency, the Texas is configured for 'clean, rhythm & lead' playability whereby in bypass mode, you get the natural clean sound of your guitar. Turn it on and freely toggle between rhythm and lead. Each channel is equipped with its own tone and level control that lets you adjust the sound to your specific needs. For instance, you can set the rhythm tone with extra high end to cut through at lower volumes while the lead channel can be set with more bottom end to fatten up the tone for solos. To increase sustain, channel-2 is augmented with extra mid-range. The Texas employs Radial's most advanced EIS - Electronic Impulse Switching - for unmatched durability without the challenges posed by mechanical switches. This ensures quiet switching at all levels and delivers years of trouble-free performance.
The Texas overdrive... 3 generations of tone with the power of 2-channel stage control.
