Radial Headload Prodigy – Load Box and DI


The Headload Prodigy is a combination load box and DI that lets you drive a guitar amp at a higher output in order to maximize the tone, yet produce a lower stage volume when needed. The Prodigy may be used in three different ways: First, it may be used as a simple direct box connection via the built-in Radial JDX Reactor. This combines a resistive load with a proprietary filter bank to emulate the tone of a 4×12 half stack. The second is as a load box where you can attenuate the output 100%, 50% or 25% for use on quiet stages. Third, the Prodigy can be used without a cabinet for completely silent recording.

Like the original Headload, the Prodigy employs custom made cement-encrusted resister coils to convert the excessive power from the amplifier to heat and is able to withstand up to 100 watts RMS. The balanced JDX output is isolated to eliminate hum and used to feed the monitors, recording system or PA and is equipped with high and low EQ for fine tuning.
