The Texas 'Bone' is a high-performance overdrive pedal capable of generating everything from vintage 'TS9' style tones all the way to the latest ultra high-gain 'in-your-face' tones. Inside is a minimalist high-gain drive circuit that lets you add bluesy textures or when driven hard, will produce harmonically rich tones that are fatter than a Texas Longhorn and more fun than a rattlesnake neck tie.
The Texas overdrive effect pedal employs a unique high-performance buffering circuit with preset load correction that retains the performance of 'true bypass' connectivity while lowering the impedance and susceptibility to noise. This enables the Texas to efficiently drive the guitar signal when using longer cables and lets it employ Radial's own EIS - Electronic Impulse Switching for outstanding durability without the challenges of mechanical switches.
For maximum on-stage efficiency, the Radial Bones Texas pedal is configured for 'clean, rhythm & lead' playability whereby in bypass mode, you get the natural clean sound of your guitar. When the Texas is activated, you can choose between two channels using the toggle footswitch. Each channel is equipped with its own tone and level control that lets you adjust each sound to your specific needs. For instance, you can set the rhythm tone with extra high end to cut through at lower volumes while the pedal's lead channel can be set with more bottom end to fatten up the tone for solos. This is augmented with two 3-position 'bite' switches that let you assign each channel for vintage style overdrive, extra beef, or a more aggressive modern tonal structure. To increase sustain and cut for solos, channel-2 is augmented in the mid-range.
