Switch Between Four Instruments On Stage With Tonebone Bumper


You can progressively advance through each input using a sequential footswitch, with the sequence determined by the input connections. However, if only two instruments are plugged in, the footswitch will only toggle between the ones that are connected. Each input features Radial’s award-winning Class-A buffer for absolute ­fidelity while enabling longer cable runs without signal degradation. This is augmented with Drag control load correction that lets you adjust the load on each instrument for optimal signal transfer, natural tone and feel.


Drag works equally well on single coil or humbucking pickups – on both electric guitar and bass. A selector switch for each input changes the Drag control to a Trim to balance louder sources such as an active bass or acoustic guitar with passive counterparts. This lets you quickly switch instruments without having to readjust levels on the stage amp. In addition to the ¼” stage amp output, the Bumper is equipped with a separately buffered tuner output. This is always on to allow on-the-fly tuning while eliminating any clocking noise or loading caused by the tuner.
