The Headlight is a unity gain guitar amp selector designed to easily integrate on a pedalboard and allow the artist to seamlessly switch between as many as four amps using a single footswitch. The magic behind the compact design is the combination of switching output jacks and an innovative sequential footswitch that advances through the connected outputs depending on how many amps are connected. You merely stomp on the footswitch to go from one output to the next. This enables the Headlight to be used with one, two, three or even four amps. High visibility LEDs provide instant output status on busy stages.

• Four output guitar amp selector with sequential switching
• Class-A input buffer with Drag Control load correction
• Isolated outputs to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops
• Mute switch and tuner out for quiet on-stage tuning

The design begins with Radials legendary Class-A input buffer for optimal signal transfer and minimal distortion without artefact. Drag Control load correction is used to replicate the tone and feel as if connected directly to an amplifier. The signal is then sent to the four outputs, three of which are transformer isolated to prevent hum and buzz caused by ground loops. Each output is augmented with a ground lift switch to further aid in reducing nose. To ensure all amplifiers play in phase, 180 polarity reverse switches may be set as needed. A mute footswitch works double duty as either a mute that turns off all the outputs except for the dedicated tuner out or as an "all-on" switch if driving multiple amps at the same time is desired.

The Headlight follows Radial's pedigree for exceptional build quality with 14-gauge steel construction throughout. This not only protects the sensitive inner workings from outside stress, it also helps prevent noise from nearby magnetic fields from polluting the inner workings. To accommodate pedalboards, the Headlight is powered by a standard 9V supply for easy integration with a multi-pedal power brick.

The Headlight delivers the perfect balance between compact size, easy functionality and great tone.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
