The Cherry Picker gives you the ability to connect to multiple devices in the studio and instantly A/B between them without any time-consuming cable swapping or re-patching. Now you can test your vocal mic through four different preamps without ever stopping playback. It also works with line-level signals, so you can connect the output of a single mic preamp into four compressors or effects units. The Cherry Picker helps you make quick decisions with the confidence that comes from an immediate A/B comparison. When paired with the Radial Gold Digger™ you can choose between four sources and destinations and select any combination instantly, giving you the freedom to explore endless sonic possibilities.

The Cherry Picker is a ‘straight wire’ switcher that lets you compare up to four preamps using a single microphone. This balanced interface employs high-performance gold contact sealed relays and is void of any buffering whatsoever. This results in distortion levels that are below measurement, zero phase shift at all audio frequencies and a linear performance that is equivalent to a solid piece of wire. The external power supply is used to control the relays, power the LEDs and generate 48V phantom power.
