Get the Sound You Want from Your Onstage Instrument!Radial's Tonebone PZ-Pre 2-channel instrument preamp is a feature-loaded onstage essential! Featuring a 3-band EQ, variable notch filter, and filter, the Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre helps you kill feedback quickly and easily, and separate piezo boosters on each channel give your pickup-equipped acoustic instrument some real punch. Also included are separate pre- and post-EQ DI outs for monitoring and FOH connections, as well as a tuner out with footswitch mute. A power booster for soloing is also onboard the Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre.
Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre 2-channel Instrument Preamp at a Glance:
EQ and filters fit for the stage
Knowing you're in control of your sound onstage helps you to perform your best. If you've ever had to plug your pickup-equipped acoustic guitar into a DI box onstage and leave the sound you hear in your monitors to the mercy of the FOH engineer, you know how powerless you can feel about controlling your instrument's tone and volume. Radial comes to the rescue with the Tonebone PZ-Pre, giving you a 3-band EQ with a semi-parametric mid control to shape your tone before it even leaves the stage. This versatile pedal's notch filter helps you fight feedback effectively, while a highpass filter removes rumble and other low-frequency noise that might effect your sound. If your pickup's output level needs a pick-me-up, the Tonebone PZ-Pre also includes a piezo booster on each of its two channels, so your volume and tone will always be robust and clear.
Great connection options
Connections are plentiful on the Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre. You get a pre-EQ balanced DI out for the front-of-house mix, a post EQ and effects loop balanced DI out for in-ear monitoring or on-stage wedges, a separate tuner out, and a personal guitar amp out. The Tonebone PZ-Pre has everything you need to stay connected onstage!
Radail not only packed a ton of functionality into the Tonebone PZ-Pre, they made sure you can easily access what you need when you need it. Want to tune up quickly? Just hit the mute button and you and your tuner are the only ones who'll know. Toggle between the PZ-Pre's two channels for tonal flexibility. Solo time? Hit the boost switch and you'll get increased volume that's sure to cut through the mix.

by Mark McDowell from Orlando, FLI only have 2 regrets about it: That I waited so long to get it, and that I only have 1! It's every thing that it promises to be, and more. I've had it 2 weeks, and have already used it in several d... read more [+]ifferent applications. It greatly improves the tone of acoustic-simulating piezo pickups in electric guitars. Used in on gigs to combine both my electric's piezo channel and either my steel or nylon string acoustic. Currently using it in a pit-orchestra, with an archtop on one channel and a banjo on the other. It's great for killing noise. An audio tech pointed out to me the other day that while some might consider it expensive, well, everybody knows how good Radial products are, and this is like 4 of them combined into one! (Two DI's, a switcher and a preamp) so it's actually a real bargain. But I must say this: EVERY other box I've ever put in front of my Taylor 714 has made it sound worse. This actually made it sound better. close [-]

LOVE this pedal
by Mark from Ctrl FLCan't believe I waited so long to get this. Made my piezo-bridge electric guitar sound more "acoustic-y" than ever, was easy to tweak the right freq's in and out. Usually acoustic processors (even g... read more [+]ood ones) weaken the original tone, but this actually improved, if not preserved it.

Most impressed by the boost...I found that noon was perfect, but you can crank it to 5' oclock, and it is still CLEAN clean. close [-]
Great preamp foracoustic guitar
by from Powell River, BCThis is a fine unit - rugged, flexible and super easy to use. The combined boost and external loop feature is a great bonus - allows me to kick in external effects on my acoustic with no perceive los... read more [+]s of punch or tone. Love the low pass and notch filters. Would be nice to have two independent eqs to make use of the A-B switching capability with having to add a separate eq for a second guitar, but great to have both pre and post eq low impedance line outs. Excellent piece of gear. close [-]

A Great Product Live and Studio
by Oscar A Sanchez from Mamaroneck,N.Y.I play a Taylor 514ce that I've had for over 12yrs .I used to plug into a Trace 30 acoustic amp .With some tweaking I could make it sound very good . I sold that amp and was temporarily using my JBL P... read more [+]A w the 15 inch speakers. It sounded passable but mostly brittle and not naturally pleasant. Once I connected the PZ-pre the" Magic " began to happen . I've been playing for 50 yrs and have never heard an amplified acoustic sound so beautiful and natural . On top of that you get so many options for live and studio applications that I just love to play through this pedal for any acoustic performance. Thanks Matt this was a great buy , a true joy to have such a musical tool . close [-]
