Powerful Control in a Box
The Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre™ is a powerful acoustic instrument preamplifier. The magic lies in the combination of high performance 100% discrete class-A PZB piezo boosters, an ultra-quiet preamp circuit that will adapt to any pickup system and a host of connectivity options that will put you in total control. The PZ-Pre is equipped with two inputs for quick instrument changes on stage, or, for blending two pickups together. Powerful semi-parametric EQ and feedback eliminating controls allow the user to fine-tune their sound while eliminating troublesome frequencies. Offering both pre and post EQ direct box outputs, the PZ-Pre can be used send a dry signal to the house and performer tailored sound to monitors.
Using two acoustic guitars on stage
The PZ-Pre is the perfect stage partner for switching between two acoustics. You can have one for backup, alternate tuning or switch from 6-string to 12-string with ease.
Using upright and electric acoustic
Switch between contrabass and electric or acoustic bass with a simple foot stomp! The PZ-Pre's input is easily optimized to work with finicky piezo pickups for a deeper, more natural tone.
Using the PZ-Pre on violin and mandolin
Using the PZ-Pre with a piezo transducer will give you more gain before feedback than a microphone. You will be surprised at how good a piezo can sound when connected to a PZ-Pre!
