Radial Engineering Tonebone PZ-PRE V2

Preamp / DI for acoustic and electric instrumentsThe Tonebone PZ-PRE 2 Acousticpreamp pedal is probably the most complete piece that has ever been built for the acoustics that have been treated by a large number of pioneers. The PZ-Pre 2 is a gain for all weight classes of the acoustic instruments - from mandolin to double bass.

Two gain-adjustable inputs allow the connection of two instruments. A 3-band EQ with a controllable center frequency allows effective sound shaping; With the dual notch filter, the feedback- or dulm-dangerous frequencies can be picked up - an effect path is also available as well as a boost function, with which one can make itself with loud passages or solos audible. A tuner out with mute allows silent voices in all situations.

you need this pedal

Patrick2807, 30.01.2016
if you have a good guitar and a good pick up installed in your guitar this is a no brainer ... excellent piece of kit ... maybe not the cheapest but with radial you pay for get quality ...

This PZ Pre Di box cleans up the sound of your guitar..it does this straight out of the box setting everything to 12 o clock .. from there you can then fine-tune your sound by moving the dials slightly to the left / right ... This DI really improves the sound of your guitar .. and if you have just spent a lot on a guitar , Amp PA etc this is the quality link needed between the two ... most definitely recommend this ... when you see studio owners and professional musicians from Nashville using these .. this speaks for itself .. also guitarist like Jerry Douglas Piere Bensusan James taylor etc ... these boys don't mess around and demand quality ..and so should you :)
