The Tonebone Series Classic V9 from Radial Engineering is a distortion pedal intended for use with electric guitar. It provides an FET circuit and aims to deliver the responsiveness and tone of the original Tonebone Classic, but without the use of a tube. Indeed, when you turn down the volume control on your electric guitar, the pedal will respond in kind, giving you a cleaner tone in a similar vein as a tube amplifier.

With dual gain stages, an adjustable drive knob, and a three-position gain-range toggle switch, the pedal can give you anything from subtle overdrive to crunchy tones to full-on high-gain lead timbres. The Classic V9 also provides a post-distortion EQ circuit with controls over highs and lows, as well as toggle switches for midrange boost. You’ll also find a three-position switch for your high end, which is useful for compensating for bright amplifiers or juicing up amps that sound too dark. The pedal is durable, constructed out of 14-gauge steel with a powder-coated finish. You can power the Classic V9 from any pedalboard using 9 VDC power, or with a compatible power adapter (available separately).

Controls at a Glance
LEVEL Knob: This knob sets the overall output volume level.

HIGH Knob: This control shapes the high-frequency timbre of the signal; it operates post distortion.

LOW Knob: This control shapes the low-frequency timbre of the signal; it operates post distortion.

DRIVE Knob: This knob adjusts the overall amount of distortion introduced in the overdrive circuit.

HIGH Toggle Switch: This switch compensates the top end for overly bright amps, or amps that may sound too dark.

MID Toggle Switch: This 3-position mid-boost switch has settings for flat, +7 dB, and +12 dB settings. When introduced into the signal, the boost is at 500 Hz. Use it to accentuate the midrange further in solos, or to fatten up the tone of a single-coil pickup.

RANGE Toggle Switch: This 3-position switch sets the gain setting, giving you different intensities of distortion.

DRIVE Footswitch: This switch engages and bypasses the Classic V9 distortion.
