[Musikmesse] Radial Headload Prodigy
Radial has just launched its HeadLoad and they are now introducing the Prodigy version that combines load box and DI.
The Headload Prodigy, unlike the Headload attenuator, gives you the ability to boost the guitar amp output level, but it can also attenuate the volume if needed.
Both models can handle up to 100W RMS. According to your need, you can use the Headload Prodigy either as a direct box via the built-in JFX Reaktor, which includes a proprietary filter bank that emulates the sound of a 4x12 half stack miked with a Shure SM57, or as a load box to attenuate the amp level from 20% to 1% and you can use the box without speaker for silent recording. Radial adds that in all modes, the JDX transformer-isolated output is available and completed with ground lift and polarity reverse switches.
The Headload Prodigy also includes a 2-band EQ on the front panel, two additional 1/4” outputs, one of which post-EQ and the other pre-EQ and pre-JDX. They can be used if you need to power other amps, effect racks and recording systems and feature a level control, which also serves for the built-in headphone amp level.
The Radial Headload Prodigy can be rack mounted with an optional tool kit. Radial provides the external 15 V DC power supply.
This new HeadLoad Prodigy will be available in May for the US street price of $399.
