The Shotgun is a guitar-signal distribution amplifier that is able to drive up to four amps simultaneously without introducing the hum and buzz that is typically encountered due to ground loops.

Designed for Hi-Z instruments, the Shotgun may be set up for mono use with one input driving four outputs or in stereo with two inputs driving two pairs of outputs. Each output is individually buffered to lower the impedance and reduce susceptibility to noise. This also lets you drive the signal longer distances when performing on bigger concert stages. Output-1 is the default that provides a safety ground path to the guitar while outputs 2, 3 and 4 are transformer isolated to eliminate nasty ground loop hum that is almost always present when using multiple amplifiers on stage. This is supplemented with individual ground lift switches. When used dual as a 1 x 2 splitter, Radial’s innovative Constant Load Correction (CLC™) circuit steps in to ensure the impedance on the guitar and subsequent tone remains consistent.

Compact and made rugged for the road, the Shotgun employs a standard 9V power supply (not included) or connection from a pedalboard power brick.  Top mounted 180° polarity reverse switches ensure all amps play in phase. (MAP: $169.99 USD)
