Adjusts the load on magnetic pickup for a natural sound
Warms up the tone of harsh sounding active buffers
Helps improve the sound of your wireless system
Compact and lightweight, can be used anywhere!
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.
When a guitar is connected to a guitar amplifier, the pickup and the amp join together to form a circuit. But as soon as you introduce a buffer in between the pickup and the amplifier, the natural relationship is lost. The pickup only 'sees' the buffer and the tone changes. This is the fundamental reason why guitarists hate the sound of wireless systems and non-true-bypass pedals. The Dragster solves the problem by restoring 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.
The Dragster is plug & play easy to use. You simply connect your guitar or bass to the Dragster using one of the ¼" inputs and then exit the Dragster using the other. Set the thumb wheel to the sound you like and you are set to go! The compact design makes it easy to fit on any pedalboard while the built-in mounting flanges make it a breeze to attach to a guitar strap. And its unobtrusive size and light weight won't slow you down. Few guitar accessories offer the tremendous 'bang-for-the buck' of a Dragster.
The Dragster – a load correction device that sounds so good, you will use it on everything
Using the Dragster on a wireless system
The buffer inside a wireless system is rarely optimized for a magnetic pickup. The Dragster lets you adjust the load on the pickup for a smoother more natural tone. Simply connect your guitar to the Dragster before you send the signal to the transmitter.
Recording with the Dragster
Connect your bass or electric to the Dragster and use it to get a more natural tone when recording. This can be particularly useful if you plan to Reamp at a later stage.
Warming up your pedal chain
The active buffers inside your pedals change the clean tone of your guitar going to your amp. The Dragster reintroduces the natural tone and feel as if connected directly to your amp by letting you adjust the load to compensate.
