The Headload Prodigy Compact Guitar Amp Load Box from Radial Engineering combines a load box with a DI to enable you to drive a guitar amp at a higher output to maximize tone, yet produce a lower output volume when needed. As a load box, the Prodigy can attenuate the output from 20% down to 1% for use on quiet stages or studio. As a DI, the Prodigy features a built-in JDX Reactor amplifier DI that combines a reactive load with a proprietary filter bank that emulates the tone of a 4 x 12 half-stack with a Shure SM-57 microphone. The unit can also be used without a cabinet for completely silent recording via the JDX output. To optimize the playing experience with in-ear monitor systems and stage wedge monitors, the Prodigy includes a dual-band EQ on the front panel. It also features a built-in headphone amplifier, making it a perfect quiet-practice companion.
