D R AG S T ER™ LOAD CORRECTION Tonebone Smar t S h e e t The Dragster is a load correction device designed to restore the full, rich tone you lose when you plug your guitar into a buffered input such as a wireless system. Dragster makes passive pickups “think” (and sound like) they’re connected directly to an ampliﬁer by simulating the impedance of an ampliﬁer by allowing you to adjust the load on the pickup. Guitar ampliﬁers are typically high impedance inputs and pickups sound their best when connected to an amp. Buffered inputs are typically low impedance and pickups can sound “thin, weak and brittle” when connected directly to them. Examples of buffered inputs are wireless transmitters, digital effects, mixers, sound cards and recorders. Dragster is inserted between the guitar and the buffered input. The thumb wheel lets you dial-in the perfect impedance for the most natural sound. Result? Your guitar tone regains it’s warmth – it feels ‘right’ again and your performance sounds great! Dragster is a compact, passive device featuring 1/4” connectors, lightweight aluminum construction and a single ‘thumb wheel’ control. The Dragster may be sewn onto a guitar strap for use with a wireless transmitter, or be hidden away on a pedalboard. Features 1/4” input and output jacks for easy hook-up. • Load correction for guitar pickups • Emulates the impedance of an amp Made in Canada for Boneheads. • Easy-to-use thumb wheel adjusts Drag™ control • Completely passive - no power required!

Time goes by and effect pedals and wireless systems get inserted between the guitar and amp. Player enjoys the new tones from the pedals but misses the pure tone of a direct connection to the amp. In order Dragster Dragster to get back that tone, some players swear off pedals and wireless entirely while others invest in “bypass” Mixing Consoles Buffered Effects boxes.
