Radial Cherry Picker 4-Channel Preamp Selector
The Cherry Picker is a unique switcher that allows you to compare up to four preamps while sharing a single microphone.
Hear more options in less time
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 even 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.
Comparing preamps using one mic

Comparing compressors when recording bass
Optimize the sound of the bass by comparing compressors. Connect the bass to the JDV-pre instrument preamp and use the Cherry Picker to listen to various compressors.
