Radial Bassbone OD reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the October issue of the magazine features a review of the Bassbone OD bass guitar effect pedal from Radial. The product was delivered for review by Radial distributor in Poland, Lauda Audio.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“Here we have one of the most powerful bass preamps that ever entered the music stage. And I’m not talking rackmount units, but a floor-based mothership that offers much more than just one signal path with a gain circuit.”

“Radial’s preamp lets us use just one bass, an instrument with both magnetic and piezo pickups or even two different basses. Apart from that, it has a separate tuner output with a footswitch assigned that mutes all other outputs.”

“The versatility of this effect can be overwhelming, but I think that everyone who even tries it out, will have to bear the expense of which it’s fully worthy.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
