The London 'Bone' is a solid-state version of the popular Tonebone Hot British distortion pedal. The 'magic' inside is a multi-stage drive circuit that produces rich, fat tones reminiscent of the latest high-gain Plexi-style tube amplifiers. This unique circuitry retains note clarity even when driven to extremes. Features include: variable drive that lets you dial-in the perfect amount of distortion, a powerful dual-band equalizer with Radial's distinctive passive-interactive tone circuit, a 3-position 'Kick' switch to add extra mid-range drive or fatten up single coil pickups, plus a 3-position 'Bite' control that can compensate for overly bright amps or add extra cut and sizzle to your tone.
The London 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 London to efficiently drive the guitar signal when using longer cables and enables it to employ our latest EIS – Electronic Impulse Switching – for unmatched durability without the challenges posed by mechanical switches.
