      Radial Engineering Tonebone Bassbone (153907)

Passive to active and back again with no hassle.

The Radial Tonebone Bassbone is a smart EQ/DI pedal that manages your bass signal with 2 separate channels and a powerful EQ that overrides the preamp's tone settings. The Tonebone allows switching between a traditional passive bass and a modern active bass during a gig without lengthy and awkward adjustments to the preamp, EQ, amp, and instrument level. This EQ and DI Box can also be used with a single bass to provide 2 separate signals finessed by its incredible enhancement capabilities. The integrated boost, variable gain, and effects loop can be used individually or together. A balanced XLR out sends the complete signal direct to the board for PA-only gigs and studio time. Added heft and punch to your tone is like a secret weapon. The Radial Tonebone Bassbone is powered by a 15VDC power supply.

Radial Engineering Tonebone Bassbone Features:

  • 2 channels for easy bass switching or signal enhancement
    Powerful 3-band EQ
    Boost and gain controls
    Effects loop
    2 - 1/4" ins
    Balanced XLR out

    1/4" TRS jack for FX loop
    1/4" tuner jack
    Powered by 15VDC power supply

  • Bassbone - the doubler's dream machine

    As reviewed by James Giles on 5/15/2009

    I play a good bit of pit work, and so have to quickly switch between electric and double bass. I've played the N.Y. touring companies for Secret Garden, Grease, and Spamalot this year alone, and this pedal is a dream come true. I simply set the 1 channel for electric bass, then e.q. the 2 channel for double bass, and line out to the sound guy. I also like that I can keep a tuner in the chain without sound interference. This is the quitest and quickest device I've ever used. I have become such a fan that I had all my accessories pockets refitted to hold the pedal in the electric cases. I use Fender, Warwick, Ibanez, and a turn of the century double bass by Baranyi - they all love this thing! I simply won't play amplified without it.

  • Bassbone is a plus for ANY bass player!

    As reviewed by Donnie Castleman on 7/8/2009

    I needed a step up from a bare-bones switcher to use multiple basses on my showroom gig in Vegas, and the Bassbone more than fits the bill! You have EQ settings on one channel (VERY usable) and 2 preset EQ settings on the other channel, and between the two you can get equal settings volume-wise, also the switches are completely silent. Also, I read before purchasing that there were complaints of the bassbone sapping your volume. I don't have an issue with this as the volume knobs are completely passive, meaning that the loudest setting on the volume knob is the volume you put into the box. There is a boost knob that provides extra volume but I don't use the boost knob and opt to have the 2 volume knobs close to maxed out. I'm very happy with my purchase and will be using this unit for years to come.

  • Great tool for live application

    As reviewed by The Stoke on 3/23/2009

    Just set it and forget it. Never worry about switching basses on stage again. I can use my active and passive basses without worrying about changing my settings on my amp when I switch between the two. Great sound from this pedal. My only complaint would be that there is not much flexibility on channel 1 due to the preset eq options, but that is no problem really. The boost is a great new world for me as well. When I need to pop out front in the mix I can, and then drop back out when my work is done. I am not a pedal guy, but I love this onee. Seems a bit pricy, until you own it... Trust me it is worth every penny.
