The hollywood 'Bone' is a solid-state version of the popular Tonebone Classic distortion pedal. The 'magic' inside is a dual-stage drive circuit that produces sweet yet distinctive tones reminiscent of the best American tube amps from the last half century, while delivering real-amp dynamics. This means that when you turn your guitar down, the Hollywood will clean up like a real tube amp. 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 'gain' switch that lets you adjust the drive range from slight grit to extreme overdrive, plus a 3-position 'cut' switch that lets you add extra mid-range drive or fatten up single coil pickups.
The Hollywood 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 Hollywood 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.
