Radial J48

The Radial J48 gives you a high-performance, phantom-powered, active direct box; perfect for live concert touring as well as professional studio applications. Offering the ability to handle extreme transients without any distortion, all while delivering the natural sound of your instrument.

Higher Rail Voltage, Higher Headroom

Given the fact that most battery-powered guitars and basses produce up to 7 volts at maximum volume. It’s typical for them to easily overload your average Direct Box that can only handle about 3 Volts. With the J48, Radial uses a unique switching power supply that raises the internal rail voltage. Allowing it to handle up to an incredible 9 Volts of power, so you’re getting improved signal handling and greater headroom.

Having the additional headroom means distortion of all types is significantly reduced. Allowing the natural tone and character of your instrument to shine through.

J48 Applications

J48 for Live Touring

Direct Boxes are ideal for sending an instrument signal from the stage to your mixing desk and PA system. Thanks to the J48, you can enjoy a natural tone at exceptionally long distances. All without adding distortion or colouring in any way.

J48 in the Studio

When you’re recording direct, the quality of the direct box ensures a pure signal going to the track. So the J48 is particularly well suited for recording bass or capturing a direct track from your guitar.

Reamping with the J48

Finally, the J48 allows you to reamp by sending the dry track from your recorder back to your pedals and amps. A trick used for years by industry professionals; the J48 is ideally suited to capture the sound of the instrument for later reamping.

  • Exceptional headroom & dynamic range
  • Retains the natural sound of the instrument
  • Merge switch sums stereo instruments to mono
  • Powered by 48V phantom, no batteries required
