Product Description

Save your back! The unique Radial JDX Direct-Drive is a powerful device that simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box. The JDX Direct-Drive produces a much more realistic sound than a direct box which only transfers your sound to the PA. In other words, with the Direct Drive on your pedalboard, you can do a gig without carrying an amp to the club.

Radial JDX Direct-Drive Guitar Amp Simulator DI Pedal Features

  • Guitar amp simulator for pedalboards
  • Eliminates need to bring an amp to the gig
  • 4 x 12 half-stack and open back combo tones
  • Employs Radial’s popular JDX tone shaping 
The design begins with a traditional 1/4” guitar input and passive thru-put to feed a stage amp. This is then followed by a dedicated tuner output that is buffered in order to eliminate loading on the pickup or noise from the quartz clock. The guitar signal is then passed through a series of carefully sculpted filters to create Radial’s signature JDX tone. This is modelled after the sound of a Shure SM57 in front of a Marshall 4-12 cabinet.

The Direct-Drive goes further with two more voicing settings: The first adds a vintage Marshall tube head character to the signal path while the second delivers a tone reminiscent of an early Fender Twin. The two amp tones can be further tailored using a presence switch for extra sparkle.

The guitar signal exits the Direct-Drive via either a 1/4” guitar-level output or via a balanced XLR to feed the PA. The direct box output is outfitted with a 180º polarity reverse switch to help phase-align monitors with the stage amp along with a ground lift switch to help eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops.

The Direct-Drive may be powered using a standard 9V power supply or typical pedalboard power brick.

As with all Radial products, the Direct-Drive is made to handle the rigors of professional touring with 14 gauge steel throughout. This not only helps prevent damage to the internal PCB, it also reduces susceptibility to noise from external magnetic fields.

Product Review

This product does what it says it does. I bought it because I run sound for a small trio that needs low stage volume. It sounds like an amp.

Great little box of tone

Product Review

It works perfectly for practicing and learning songs. When using it live (XLR out to board) with my Fender Deluxe (no mike) is time consuming. When I get pedals and amp sounding good the XLR out doesn’t sound like the amp and pedals through the PA. Extra time spent tweaking the board EQ IS A MUST and some with the pedals to get them close. Next time I’ll try Ming the amp and use the XLR out from the box.

Awesome solution when using an amp on stage is impractical.

Product Review

There are a lot of venues where using an amp on stage is impractical or not allowed this is like having two amps and an emulated cabinet at your disposal. Withoit this thing, my pedalboard sounded pretty bad but now it sounds awesome going directly to the house. It also solves the problem of no DI on the Marshall when I am able to use my amp on stage. Pick u one of these. Your pedals will thank you for it.

Lots of Tonal Potential

Product Review

I went on a short run for one leg of a tour for a local musician. I was asked to consider plugging directly into the PA for my sound. I decided on the JDX Direct Drive because of the multiple options on voicing that I hoped would give me the flexibility to find the tone closest to my regular amp set up. What I found was that it was usable for the most part but not very inspiring to play through. That was until one night on tour we had a sound engineer that actually took the time to tweak settings and EQ on the PA channel. In the end, he was able to dial up a tone that really made a difference. So the moral of the story is that if you decide to use the JDX as an alternative to playing through an mic'ed amp, I recommend you speak to the sound engineer and work together to EQ the sound to the acoustics of the room. It can have a difference that will impact and inspire your playing.

It works!

Product Review

Had my reservations about this, but it performed flawlessly. A bit upsetting when I consider the time and money I've spent modifying my amps. Out front in the mix it sounds like me. No real perceivable difference. If you want to go direct using your pedals, this is it.
