The Shotgun is a compact guitar-level signal buffer designed to drive up to four amplifiers simultaneously and fit nicely on any pedalboard. It features two inputs with a switching jack on input-2 that - when connected - changes the architecture from a 1x4 mono distribution system to a 2x2 stereo setup. The Shotgun is equipped with CLC Radial's unique Consistent Load Compensation circuit that retains a stable input impedance to ensure the character of the signal remains unchanged, no matter if you use one or two sources.

• Configurable for 1x4 mono or 2x2 stereo
• Isolated outputs eliminate ground loops
• Buffered outputs drive extra long cables
• CLC Consistent Load Compensation circuit

Inside, a carefully designed low noise buffer circuit with a full-surface ground plane delivers your tone further up to 15 meters (50') without noise. This is augmented with isolation transformers on outputs 2, 3 and 4 to help eliminate the nasty buzz and hum caused by ground loops when multiple amps are connected together. And like all Radial products, the Shotgun is made tough to handle the rigors of professional touring. Powering is done using standard 9V supply or multi-pedal power brick.

When used in the 1x4 mono-mode, the Shotgun will effortlessly drive multiple amplifiers, direct box outputs and modeling amplifiers at the same time. In 2x2 stereo-mode, you can connect the output from your stereo chorus to the Shotgun and drive two or four amps in stereo, in phase, without noise.

The Shotgun delivers more boom, less smoke and bullet-proof performance!

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StorePickering, Ontario
I run smaller low wattage 15w tube amps. When playing live, adding up to 3 or 4 15w lighter combo amps is more convenient, as each stage area can have a little amp at desired level instead of clogging up the vocal monitors with guitar signal. or one big loud amp. Multi purpose guitar signal distribution and isolation with corrective buffered load to each guitar amp. Can be used for applications when you need phase correct multi amps which is good for recording micing different amps Pros - Small Radial knows there stuff, you get what you pay for Cons:- Didn't come with a 9VDC power supply Could use some bypass slider switches for the outputs or for A/B or test purposes.
