Guitar, Amp, & FX Signal Manager

The Radial JX44 V2 is a guitar, amplifier, and FX signal manager redesigned for today’s touring professional, with unique features such as an assignable stereo FX loop, the ability to connect to remote pedalboards without signal loss, and options for footswitch control including built-in MIDI functionality.

  • Switch between 4 instrument inputs and 4 amp outputs
  • Assignable stereo effects loop simplifies FX routing
  • Connect to a local or remote pedalboard with SGI-44
  • Remote switching control with optional JR-5 or MIDI
  • Gold-contact i/o connections, and premium Jensen transformers
  • Built-in 120/240V power supply for worldwide touring

Stress-Free Signal Management

Created to meet the needs of meticulous guitar techs and built to handle the rigors of concert touring, the JX44 V2 is the professional's choice for managing and switching guitar signals on stage. Four instruments or wireless receivers can be connected and activated simultaneously, with all inactive inputs automatically feeding a buffered Tuner output, streamlining instrument hand-offs and accommodating for silent tune-ups during a performance. Inputs and outputs feature large illuminated switches for instant visual feedback, and redundant front-panel input jacks accommodate for last minute changes on the fly. All switching is silent and immediate, for flawless transitions that enhance the performance without disruption.

FX Routing and Remote Control

The JX44 also handles complex effects routing with ease, with connections for a local stereo EFX loop and the ability to assign individual EFX channels to any amplifier for wet/dry/wet setups. Remote pedalboards can also be added without signal loss or degradation using the optional SGI-44, giving the artist control over pedal FX without sacrificing tone, even from 100 feet away. While the JX44 V2 works on its own as a complete guitar control center, it can also be controlled remotely, with dual inputs for Radial JR-5 remote footswitches to control either guitar or amp switching, and a MIDI 5-pin connection for operation via MIDI controllers and foot pedals.

Putting Tone and Quality Above All

Four unbalanced outputs are all isolated with premium Jensen transformers for optimal tone and signal quality, with ground lift and 180 polarity reverse switches, ensuring multi-amp setups playback without phase issues or ground loop noise including hum and buzz. Gold-contact connectors are used throughout, with Radial’s trusted build quality to survive any touring conditions with ease. A Radial DI box output is also included for when a direct feed from acoustic instruments to FOH is required, also Jensen-equipped. For use on world touring acts, the JX44 V2 features an internal 120/240V switching power supply with an IEC cable that can easily be swapped out when travelling internationally.

APPLICATIONS

Switch between four guitars and four amps

Instrument and amp changeovers on stage are seamless and noise-free with the JX44. Use the front panel controls or connect the optional JR-5 remote footswitch to select guitars or amps.

Route effects to multiple amplifiers

A local stereo effects loop on the JX44 allows you to connect rackmount or pedal effects and easily assign them to each of the amplifier outputs, making various wet/dry setups a breeze.

Connect a remote pedalboard with the SGI-44

With the optional SGI-44 remote effects loop, you can connect a pedalboard from up to 300 feet away without signal loss or added noise, keeping the artist in control of their sound while the JX44 is off stage.

Control guitar & amp switching via MIDI

The JX44 has a built-in MIDI input that allows all switching features to be controlled using a MIDI controller or pedalboard, so you can program all changes ahead of time for a stress-free gig.

FEATURES

  • Front Inputs: Buffered gold-contact inputs for unbalanced instruments such as guitars and basses. The front panel jacks take priority over the rear panel instrument inputs.
  • Input On/Off: Large switches with green LED indicators turn each instrument input on/off. Multiple inputs can be on simultaneously.
  • EFX Assign: Selects whether the left or right EFX Loop returns feed the corresponding amplifier output. When ‘dry’ is selected, the EFX Loop will not feed the amp output.
  • 180°: Reverses signal polarity at the corresponding amplifier output to help correct phase issues when using multiple amps simultaneously.
  • Lift: Disconnects chassis ground on the corresponding amplifier output to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops.
  • Output On/Off: Large switches with amber LED indicators turn each amplifier output on/off. Multiple outputs can be on simultaneously.
  • Mute: Switch with red LED indicator cuts signal to all amplifier outputs.
  • IEC Power: Connection for standard IEC power cable (included). 120/240V operation for international use.
  • MIDI In: Standard 5-pin MIDI connector allows MIDI controllers to activate the inputs and outputs of the JX44 V2. Eight dip switches configure channel, program, and control changes. Can be used in conjunction with JR-5 remote footswitches.
  • Remote Footswitch: XLR connections for optional JR-5 remote footswitches, which can control either the instrument inputs or the amplifier outputs. Two JR-5 footswitches can be used simultaneously.
  • Tuner Out: Buffered unbalanced output to feed a separate tuner. This output is fed by all inactive instrument inputs, and will always be active even if the Mute switch is engaged.
  • EFX Loop Remote: 1/4” TS jack for connection to standard momentary footswiches to turn on/off the EFX Loop remotely.
  • Outputs: Transformer isolated and buffered gold-contact outputs for feeding up to four stage amplifiers.
  • Stereo EFX Loop: 1/4” TS send and receive connections for local effects pedal chains.
  • Direct Output: Balanced XLR output to feed a mixer or recording interface. Lift switch disconnects pin-1 to eliminate hum and buzz. Assign switch selects whether the Direct Out is fed a pre or post-EFX signal, or instrument input 4 exclusively.
  • SGI RX/TX: Balanced SGI loop works with the optional SGI-44 to drive long cable runs to and from a remote pedalboard. Includes ground lift switch and SGI on/off switch.
  • Back Inputs: Connections for unbalanced instruments such as guitars and basses. Wired in parallel with front panel connectors.

    CPS Extended Warranty

    Warranty Information

    PROTECT YOUR PRODUCT WITH AN EXTENDED WARRANTY

    • Full Coverage from Date of Purchase
    • 100% Parts and Labor Coverage
    • Includes Accidental Damage
    • Includes Free Shipping
    • Up to 5 Years of Total Coverage

    Bananas has partnered with Consumer Priority Service (CPS) to offer extended warranties for your instruments. Simply add the CPS extended warranty by selecting the option on our product pages.

    Warranty FAQ

    DO I NEED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY?

    Most manufacturers limit their warranty periods to keep their product costs competitive. It should come as no surprise that most problems occur after the manufacturer’s warranty is over. If you are like most consumers, you don't want to deal with the inevitable problems surrounding repairs. Who do you call for service? Are they reliable? Is a handyman capable of performing a long lasting, reliable repair on your instrument?

    Ranked #1 Extended Warranty

    CPS provides top notch warranty protection for your purchases to ensure life and longevity. This means that they care about you and your product long after your purchase has been made. This warranty offers reliable, hassle-free, comprehensive parts and labor protection for your product.

    You Need to Prepare for These Issues Today

    Bananas is an Authorized Consumer Priority Service Dealer. This means that they care about you and your products long after the purchase date. You can easily extend your manufacturer's warranty for a possible total of 5 years from the date of purchase.

    CPS Warranties Offer Reliable Protection for Your Product

    By purchasing a CPS accidental damage plan, you’re guaranteed years of worry free operation from your new product.

    Is a CPS Warranty just an extension of the existing manufacturer’s warranty?

    Actually, it’s an upgrade to your existing manufacturer’s warranty. A CPS Warranty offers benefits that aren’t offered by manufacturers like accidental damage & free shipping to and from the repair facility.

    What’s the difference between a Replacement Plan and Repair Plan?

    A Replacement Plan is available for products under $150. If the product fails, you will receive a replacement through Bananas.

    A Repair Plan is for products over $150 and offers free repair coverage for your product any time during the life of your warranty. If we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it!

    How am I covered?

    For the Replacement Plan, your coverage provides for a one-time replacement of the covered product.

    For the Repair Plan, you are covered for a period of up to five years (depending on which plan you purchase). Benefits include parts and labor for required repairs on your product.

    When does my warranty coverage start?

    Coverage begins on the 31st calendar day from when you purchased your product.

    Can I transfer the Protection Plan to a new owner?

    Yes! CPS Warranties are transferable between owners.

    What if I Need to Return my Product?

    If you return your product, Bananas returns the money you paid for the product protection plan. Depending on how much time has passed since your purchase, CPS may issue a prorated refund.

    Is my product covered if it’s stolen or if I lose it?

    Unfortunately the CPS Warranty does not cover lost or stolen products.

    Is there a service fee?

    Zero dollar service fee for the Replacement Plans and the Repair Plans.

    HOW DO I FILE A CLAIM?
