The Tonebone Classic Trimode is Radial's most progressive pedal ever! Trimode gives you instant access to superb clean, rhythm and lead tones without tap dancing. And tone you will receive. Based on the heritage of America's finest tube amplifiers, the Trimode delivers five generations of tone from the slight overdrive of early rock & roll to blistering power tones of today's high gain amps.
Following the award-winning Tonebone Classic, the Trimode combines the warmth and even harmonics of a 12AX7 tube with Radial's unique dual-stage drive for the natural dynamics and response of a vintage tube amp.
As its name implies, The Trimode has three settings: 'True Bypass Clean Mode' for the natural tone of your guitar - direct to your amp; 'Rhythm Mode' with input drive, output gain and our unique Interstage drive to precision-tune the mayhem you are about to unleash; and 'Solo Mode' with its own input drive, output gain, and mid boost for days of sustain. Trimode goes even further with a built-in effects loop on the solo channel that lets you instantly engage a delay or pedal chain with a single foot action.
Trimode: 3 modes, huge tone and amazing dynamics - finally, a pedal that sounds and feels like a real tube amp!
The Radial Trimode offers an amazing combination of simplicity and functionality with innovative, well thought-out features accessible through intuitive controls and i/o options.
The two footswitches provide for easy toggling between modes and large LED indicators allow instant at-a-glance monitoring of the Trimode's status.
Separate drive, level and mid-boost control for each distortion channel gives the user the power to easily set up exactly the distortion sounds required, then toggle between them with no tap-dancing!
The overall TOP END and DRIVE GAIN switches together with variable HIGH and LOW EQ controls and the 'anti-presence' FILTER control will guide you to the perfect tone for your amp/guitar combination.
Effects can be connected via the INSERT ¼" send-receive TRS jack and are switched in when you press the 'Toggle' switch to select CH-2.
