The Radial Loopbone Dual Effects Loop is a powerful effects loop controller for pedal boards that allows the guitar player to insert 2 separate pedal effects chains and remove them when not in use. This is particularly advantageous when using older effects pedals that tend to add noise and cause loading problems in the signal chain. The Radial Loopbone incorporates a superb post-effects variable-gain power booster that allows straight signal boosting or post loop-1 or loop-2 boost for soloing.
To ensure that the natural tone of the instrument is maintained, the Loopbone features Radial's unique Drag Control pickup load correction circuit that allows the guitarist to properly match the impedance load of any pedal board configuration with any guitar for optimum performance. Furthermore, there are no signal degrading op-amps or chips in the signal path, only 100% discrete components and Radial's highly acclaimed Class-A circuit for natural tone and exceptional dynamics.
Besides FX-loop switching, load matching, and signal boost, the Loopbone brings even more to your pedal board: a separate "always-on" tuner-out circuit allows on-the-fly tuning without adding noise or load to your instrument signal and, perhaps the most innovative feature of all, Slingshot. Slingshot is Radial's unique remote switching system that allows the Loopbone to simultaneously switch amplifier channels, other amp features, or even another Slingshot-equipped device.

Haven't had it for very long but based on my initial experience it's exactly what I was looking for! After a lively jam with friends during which we covered a LOT of different music I was desperate to find a solution to the "tap dancing" that was necessary to activate a particular combination of pedals (or sometimes just one pedal) during different songs. Enter the Loopbone! With two separately-selectable loops I was able to separate my MC-404 wah (leaving it "on" and kicking it in with the first loop) and my Pigtronix Philosopher's Rock with my MXR M77 Overdrive on a second loop. Voila! No more tap dancing! The built-in buffer (they call it the "Drag Control" and it's adjustable!) and switchable boost (clean and sweet, does a great job pushing my Orange Jim Root Terror amp into saturation heaven) make an already great pedal that much better. And for the incredible price I paid for it used from GC, I could not possibly be happier!
Picked this up used from GC for a ridiculously good price. I now can kick on my MXR MC-404 wah with the pedal set where I want it, and bring in my Pigtronix Philosopher's Rock Compressor and/or MXR M-77 Modified OD for screaming leads without looking like I'm rehearsing for Riverdance! The 2 separate FX loops - with the "drag" control for matching gain from the guitar to the amp - are super quiet and convenient, and the built-in boost is clean and effective. The box is built like a tank and the included power supply is hum-free. Great addition to my pedal board! Will add the 5th star once I've had it long enough to rate dependability.
Works exactly as advertised. Taking other pedals out of the loop and bringing them in when needed predictably enhanced my tone. My guitars have never sounded better. The slingshot is an extra added benefit. Great pedal very well made.
