"In 2008 I was on the verge of giving up trying to amplify my Australian acoustic made instruments for live gigging. By chance, I read that James Taylor was using a Tonebone PZ-Pre so I figured that this preamp might be the solution to my problems. Boy was I right. This preamp solved every one of the problems for my nylon-string, steel-string and mandocello. I couldn't possibly conceive of doing a gig without it."
