Jam-packing a full array of features into a compact pedal for live stage use, the Tonebone PZ-Deluxe from Radial Engineering is a studio-quality instrument preamp that begins with a low-noise front-end capable of exceptional dynamics, allowing for adaptiation to all instruments, including acoustic guitar, upright bass, as well as violin and mandolin, no matter what type of pickup system is implemented. For piezo transducers, a special PZB gain stage can be engaged, increasing the input impedance to 10 meg-Ohms which eliminates "squawk" and explosive peaks that are common with other systems. This likewise eliminates the need for a separate preamp - of particular importance for those that don't really want to cut a hole in their vintage guitar.

NOTE: This is a RESTOCK item that has had its box opened or has been repackaged. It may have minor cosmetic flaws and may have been sold to a customer and returned. Please contact your Sales Pro for more information on this and other products.

The well-appointed control panel has input gain, 3-band semi-parametric EQ with variable mid-frequency, 3-position low-frequency resonance filter, and 180 DEGREE polarity reverse switches to eliminate acoustic hot spots that may cause runaway resonant feedback. A guitar-level output delivers the signal to the artist's stage amp while the onboard Radial direct box feeds the PA system. This balanced low-impedance output lets the PZ-Deluxe drive long cable runs of over 100 meters (300 feet) with no noise. Also featured is a separate tuner output that enables quiet on-stage adjustments by depressing the mute switch. And for solos, included is a variable power booster with set-and-forget level control which let you punch through the mix when needed.

Compact for easy transportation, made tough to handle the road, the Radial PZ-Deluxe is plug-and-play, easy to use, and delivers remarkable studio-quality audio wherever you are.
