Open the door to explore new musical sounds and ideas.

The Radial X-Amp Active Reamplifier presents the engineer/producer/guitarist with an innovative and creative tool that allows a prerecorded track from a line level device to drive 2 guitar amplifiers or effect pedals simultaneously. The X-Amp employs a unique Class-A circuit design that has been optimized for use with guitars. Using the X-Amp is easy: One would, for instance, record a dry track using a high-quality direct box, then send this track from the recorder to the X-amp and then to either guitar amps, effect pedals or combinations thereof.

Recording using the X-Amp has many benefits: once the basic track has been recorded, replacing or adding tracks can be done well after the session player has gone home. This eliminates tiresome repetition and assures a fresh vibrant performance on the final recording. Furthermore, by driving 2 amps at the same time, new sounds and textures can be created allowing the engineer-producer to make artistic decisions as the recording progresses. Features include balanced line level input with LED peak indicator and level control, Class-A circuit topology for optimal reach and frequency response, direct and isolated guitar amplifier outputs, 180° polarity reverse to bring both amps into phase, and dual ground lift options for noise-free operation.

Built like a tank to provide years of trouble-free performance, the Radial X-Amp boasts a welded I-beam internal skeleton with a separate housing for maximum protection of the circuit board. 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 X-Amp from sliding around when placed on a vibrating amplifier while also providing electrical and mechanical isolation.

  • Great Guitar recording tool!

    As reviewed by guitoffee on 6/7/2010

    It's hard being Mr. recording engineer and Mr. guitar player at the same time. Especially when you are mic'ing your amp. As you are playing, you are always wondering if the tone coming form the amp is getting captured correctly or the way you want. This box allows you to be a guitar player and then tinker with your tone and mic placement for the recording later. This box was a life saver, as I recorded some tracks of my guitar direct late one night in my apartment. I then was simply able to "reamp" them in the studio later. This allowed me to keep the initial vibe of what I was playing and add the tone of my vintage amps later. These tracks ended up on the album my band released.... It's a very simple and flexible tool, built like a tank too.
