Radial Dragster Guitar Wireless Load Correction Device
Super-Compact Load Correction Device
The Radial Dragster is a super-compact load correction device that lets you adjust the load on your electric guitar pickup to replicate the sound as if connected directly to a tube guitar amp. The Dragster is extremely compact at less than 1" high, 2" wide and less than 2" deep. It has a perforated bottom plate that allows the unit to be fixed to a guitar strap or screwed down into a pedal board, and is made from aluminum and steel.
Allows adjustable impedance loading between pickup and wireless transmitter
Restore the full rich tone you lose when you plug your guitar into a wireless transmitter or other types of buffered inputs such as effects pedals, mixing consoles, sound cards or all-in-one recording systems. Simply connect your guitar or bass to the Dragster using one of the 1/4" inputs and then exit the Dragster using the other. Set the thumbwheel to the sound you like and you are set to go!
The design begins with two separate channels:
The first is dedicated for electric guitar - the second is optimized for acoustic. Two easy access footswitches allow the artist to effortlessly select between pickups for a seamless performance on stage. The magnetic-electric pickup channel features Radial's award winning class-A buffer for absolute signal integrity. This is augmented with Drag Control (TM) load correction to counter the effect of the buffer for a more natural tone. The piezo-acoustic channel features an ultra-high 10meg-Ohm impedance that at once broadens the frequency response while smoothing out the peaks and edginess that often plagues these transducers. A built-in 3-position high-pass (low cut) filter helps eliminate excessive bottom end which could cause the sound to be muddy and indistinct. When used with an acoustic instrument, the filter works with the 180 deg polarity reverse to help eliminate resonant feedback. A low-pass (high-cut) filter has been included to help warm the sound of active piezo systems that can often sound harsh.
There are two outputs to choose from:
A standard ¼" output to feed a stage amp and a built-in Radial DI box to deliver the piezo-acoustic tone direct to the PA system via a low-Z balanced XLR out. A dedicated effects loop on the piezo channel lets you connect a series of pedals to feed both outputs. Selecting channels is simply a matter of depressing the associated footswitch. Bright full-sized LEDs provide visual clarity under stage lights to show the selected channel. Even when off, the signal from both pickups are combined and sent to the dedicated tuner out for quiet on stage adjustments.
