Boost

Gives you up to 8dB of added gain for solos. Works with boost footswitch.

1

3 Band EQ

With bass, semi-parametric mid range and high frequency controls.

2

Notch

Sets the center frequency for the notch filter. Used to eliminate feedback.

3

Level 1 & 2

Sets the input volume level on each channel.

4

Phase

Reverse used to correct the phase relationship of the instrument output to reduce on stage feedback.

5

Footswitch Assign

Used to set the Boost footswitch for boost, effects loop or both.

6

Notch-Q

Selects normal or extra deep notch. Works with notch frequency control.

7

Lo-Cut

3 position filter reduces low frequency rumble and resonance that can cause feedback or muddy the sound.

8

Mute

Footswitch turns off all outputs except the tuner out. Used for quiet on-stage tuning.

9

Boost

Footswitch activates booster or effects-loop. Works with Boost Assign footswitch.

10

Toggle

Footswitch lets you select between ch-1 and ch-2. LEDs indicate active input.

PZB-2

Recessed switch turns on class-A booster and increases impedance to 10meg Ohms for piezo equipped instruments.

1

Loop Send / Return

Inserts effects into the signal path. Activated with boost footswitch.

2

Pre-EQ Output

Balanced direct box XLR output used to send dry signal (without EQ) to PA system.

3

Lift

Disconnects pin-1 ground at the XLR output to help eliminate hum & buzz caused by ground loops.

4

180°

Recessed switch reverses pins 2 and 3 at the XLR output. Used to help eliminate feedback.

5

Post-EQ Output

Balanced direct box XLR output used to send wet signal (with EQ) to the PA system or monitors.

6

Tuner

Always on buffered output is used with the mute footswitch for quiet on-stage tuning.

7

15VDC Power Supply

Delivers more head-room than a typical 9V supply for added clarity and dynamics.

Input-1

This 1/4” jack is used to connect the main acoustic instrument to the PZ-Pre.

1

PZB-1

Recessed switch adds class-A booster circuit and incresed impedance for piezo-electric element to ch-1.

2

Mix / Blend

Recessed switch defeats the toggle switch, turns both channels on to blend.

3

Input-2

This 1/4” jack is used to connect the second acoustic instrument to the PZ-Pre.

Class-A Circuitry

Ensures optimal signal flow and the most natural tone.

1

Potentiometers

Double up solder points for greater durability. Steel casing with steel shaft and retention nut will not bend when under stress.

2

Switches

Extra Durable switches with metal outer casing are rated at over 20,000 cycles.

3

Connectors

Glass filled nylon housing is tougher than steel and provides isolation for reduced noise. Nickel-silver contacts will not tarnish.
