Get more out of your guitar with T4RS

Guitar amp settings that sound great with a bridge pickup don't necessarily sound great with a neck pickup. The T4RS jack, when installed in an instrument, sends all pickup signals through a single cable to a breakout box, where each signal can be routed to a seperate amplifier or recording input. In recording situations with T4RS-equipped instruments, engineers will be provided with all of these unique-sounding signals as options toward building a composite tone by layering one or more sounds. With simultaneous discrete access to the sound of each pickup (and pickup combination), guitarists can unlock the tonal possibilities inherent in their guitars by dialing in multiple amp settings that flatter the unique voice of each pickup in their instrument, and then record or perform with all of those sounds at once; a modern spin on a classic studio production workflow.

The T4RS kit includes a jack, cable, and breakout box and, once installed, is fully backward-compatible with regular instrument cables. Installation is simple: replace the output jack on your instrument with a T4RS jack and, when a T4RS cable is plugged in, all pickups signals in your instrument can be routed individually through the outputs of the T4RS breakout box. No routing, splicing, or irreversible changes are made to the instrument; just swap out your output jack for a T4RS. And, in situations where you don't need multiple signals, plugging your guitar directly into an amp with a regular instrument cable will function just as it always did.

The T4RS allows up to six different signals from your guitar to be sent from your guitar simultaneously to the T4RS breaout box. T4RS works with two-pickup or three-pickup guitars.

For a three-pickup instrument, the breakout box provides the following individual unbalanced 1/4" outputs:

1) The pickup signal selected from your existing toggle
2) The neck pickup by itself
3) The middle pickup by itself
4) The bridge pickup by itself
5) The neck and middle pickups summed
6) The middle and bridge pickups summed
7) The neck and bridge pickups summed

For a two-pickup instrument, the breakout box provides the following individual unbalanced 1/4" outputs:

1) The pickup signal selected from your existing toggle
2) The neck pickup by itself
3) The bridge pickup by itself
4) The neck and bridge pickups summed

The T4RS jack uses passive analog circuitry, so your signal is uncolored direct from the pickups. For the summed pickup signals, an optional active buffer is used by supplying power into the guitar from the breakout box (no batteries needed) through the T4RS cable; each discrete (non-summed) pickup is routed to the breakout box without hitting this buffer. As an added feature: the power supplied into the guitar from the T4RS breakout box can also be tapped to supply power to your active pickups, so you never have to use a battery for your pickups again!
