A DI Optimized for All Instruments!

Radial's PZ-DI is a unique direct box that lets you precisely match the input impedance to your source to optimize frequency response, dynamics, and feel, so no matter what type of pickup is being used, you'll get smooth, musical results. A 3-position load switch lets you optimize for orchestral instruments with piezo pickups and acoustic, electric, and bass guitars with magnetic pickups, as well as older low-output instruments, while a variable highpass filter eliminates rumble and (in conjunction with an onboard polarity reverse) eliminates feedback. There's also a lowpass filter onboard the Radial PZ-DI.

Radial PZ-DI Direct Box Features at a Glance:

  • Optimized for orchestral instruments on a live stage

  • Adjustable load for piezo and magnetic pickups
  • Variable highpass filter to control bass resonance
  • Lowpass filter gently warms the top end of active instruments
  • 48V phantom powered, does not require batteries
You need a DI that does it all: the Radial PZ-DI!

A must have !!

This DI is amazing !! I use it along with my PRS P22 for the acoustic channel. It not only takes out the 'brittle-ness' of a piezo pickup sound, it 'warms up' the tone also. The output of this DI is crystal clear and does not add anything to your tone to muddy it up !! I highly recommend this DI to anyone who plays a piezo equipped instrument. A definite 'must-have' !!!

A DI for everyman

Cutting back the lower frequencies of guitars, violins and even mandolins with internal pick-ups, is a secret trick of sorts that really helps un-muddy the amplified sound of a full band. The PZ-DI is a well made, super flexible piece of gear that helps do that without having to resort to an external pre-amp (yay). Impedance matching, high cut, ground, and phase switches round out the features. No brainer for better sound.
