Gives you up to 8dB of added gain for solos. Works with boost footswitch.
3 Band EQ
With bass, semi-parametric mid range and high frequency controls.
Sets the center frequency for the notch filter. Used to eliminate feedback.
Level 1 & 2
Sets the input volume level on each channel.
Reverse used to correct the phase relationship of the instrument output to reduce on stage feedback.
Used to set the Boost footswitch for boost, effects loop or both.
Selects normal or extra deep notch. Works with notch frequency control.
3 position filter reduces low frequency rumble and resonance that can cause feedback or muddy the sound.
Footswitch turns off all outputs except the tuner out. Used for quiet on-stage tuning.
Footswitch activates booster or effects-loop. Works with Boost Assign footswitch.
Footswitch lets you select between ch-1 and ch-2. LEDs indicate active input.
Recessed switch turns on class-A booster and increases impedance to 10meg Ohms for piezo equipped instruments.
Loop Send / Return
Inserts effects into the signal path. Activated with boost footswitch.
Balanced direct box XLR output used to send dry signal (without EQ) to PA system.
Disconnects pin-1 ground at the XLR output to help eliminate hum & buzz caused by ground loops.
Recessed switch reverses pins 2 and 3 at the XLR output. Used to help eliminate feedback.
Balanced direct box XLR output used to send wet signal (with EQ) to the PA system or monitors.
Always on buffered output is used with the mute footswitch for quiet on-stage tuning.
15VDC Power Supply
Delivers more head-room than a typical 9V supply for added clarity and dynamics.
Recessed switch forces the effects loop to remain on all the time
1/4” jack instrument level for on-stage amplifier.
This 1/4” jack is used to connect the main acoustic instrument to the PZ-Pre.
Recessed switch adds class-A booster circuit and incresed impedance for piezo-electric element to ch-1.
Mix / Blend
Recessed switch defeats the toggle switch, turns both channels on to blend.
This 1/4” jack is used to connect the second acoustic instrument to the PZ-Pre.
Ensures optimal signal flow and the most natural tone.
Double up solder points for greater durability. Steel casing with steel shaft and retention nut will not bend when under stress.
Extra Durable switches with metal outer casing are rated at over 20,000 cycles.
Glass filled nylon housing is tougher than steel and provides isolation for reduced noise. Nickel-silver contacts will not tarnish.
