Radial JX62 Guitar Selector w/ 6 Inputs
Concert Touring Guitar and Amplifier Switcher
The JX62™ is a guitar and amp switcher designed for both wired and wireless guitars in a live concert touring environment, with the ability to switch between up to six instruments and two amplifiers with ease.
A guitar technician's best friend
The JX62 can help tame even the most complex guitar rigs, routing multiple inputs and outputs while also providing a stage tech with a headphone output and PFL switches to silently tune instruments and monitor any input without disrupting the performance. All six instrument inputs have adjustable trim controls to balance their relative levels, while channels 5 and 6 also feature direct outputs to feed the PA system, eliminating the need for external direct boxes. Dual amplifier outputs can be selected locally or with a remote JR-2 footswitch, with transformer isolation and ground lift switches to ensure noise free operation.
Using the JX62 with a guitar rig
The JX62 is the ultimate instrument and amp selector for a busy rock star! Connect four wireless guitars and then switch between two amps using the optional JR2 footswitch. Add a couple of acoustics with direct outs to the PA system.
Using the JX62 with a bass setup
Use the JX62 to switch between your favorite electrics and an upright. Channels 5 and 6 have direct outs to feed the PA system, eliminating the need for external direct boxes. Use the optional JR2 to mute the basses when tuning or switching instruments.
Using the JX62 with a multi-instrumentalist
With six inputs, the JX62 makes it easy to switch between six instruments on stage. Individual trim controls let you match the signals for the perfect balance. Use the direct outs with some Radial DI boxes if you have channels to spare!
- Select between 6 guitars and 2 amps
- PFL switches and headphone output for system checks
- Two Radial DI outputs for acoustic guitars
- Transformer isolated to eliminate ground loops
Turns on the channel and routes the signal to amp outputs.
Lets you adjust the load on the pickup to optimize the tone.
Sends the input signal to the headphones and tuner.
Provides quick visual reference of critical functions.
Sets the input levels so that all channels produce the same relative output.
Direct Out Gnd
Lifts pin-1 on XLR to eliminate ground loops.
Direct Out On
Sends signal to balanced XLR direct box output.
Direct Out Pol
Reverses the phase to eliminates resonance.
Amp A/B Gnd
Lifts the ground on 1/4" output to help eliminate ground loops.
Amp A/B On
Turns on amp outputs to bypass AB select.
Amp A/B Sel
Manual control over A and B amp outputs.
Amp A/B Pol
Used to set the two amplifiers in phase.
Mutes all outputs except the tuner and headphone.
Sets the headphone level for the PFL and rear tuner output.
¼" output for guitar tuner, wedge monitor or stage amp.
TRS headphone output for PFL and main outs.
Locking connection for the external power supply.
On rear panel for rack tuners - takes signal from PFL.
For optional JR2 footswitch, controls A/B select and mute function. Choice of XLR or ¼" TRS.
JR2 Remote On
Activates JR2 footswitch to allow remote control.
Lifts pi-1 on XLR to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops.
Reverses pin-2 and 3 on the XLR to solve phase issues.
Balanced A/B Output
Lo-Z XLR output sends signal from the active channel to mixer or modeling amp.
Unbalanced A/B Output
Hi-Z output used to feed on-stage guitar amps.
Used to insert effects pedals into the signal chain.
DI Box Out
Balanced lo-Z direct box output on channels 5 and 6 to feed acoustic guitar or bass to the PA system.
¼" guitar input – used to connect instrument or wireless system.
¼" direct thru-put used to feed a dedicated guitar amp or direct box.
Glass filled nylon connectors provide 100% isolation and excellent durability.
Road proven Radial switches feature extra durable metal outer casing. Rated at over 20,000 cycles.
Great sounding ET-DB2 direct box transformers deliver mic level output on channels 5 and 6.
Steel body, rated at over 20,000 cycles for years of trouble-free performance.
Military grade relays with gold contacts are rated to last years without degradation.
High performance JT-11-YMPC output transformers deliver great tone without noise.
Double-sided military spec for greater durability and full ground plane to reduce radio frequency interference.
Dual Gang Potentiometers
Double up solder points for greater durability. Steel casing with steel shaft and retention nut will not bend when under stress.
CH-5/6 DI Out Switch
Recessed ‘set-and-forget’ switch allows you to turn the direct box outputs on and off using the channel ON switches. When this switch is set to OFF, the direct outputs can be turned on and off independently. When set to ON, the direct outputs will turn on and off with the channel ON switch.
When set to OFF, the direct box outputs remains active while the amp bus outputs are muted. When set to ON, the mute function will turn off the direct box outputs along with the A/B amp bus outputs.
