Get That "Amp Feel" When You Plug into Other Gear!

It's bothered guitarists for a long time: whenever we plug into a piece of recording gear other than our trusty amp, we lose that "connection" between us and our sound! The ZBox fixes all that. When you plug into it, you'll feel as though you're jacked straight into a tube amp. Finally, you can play with the response and reaction you're used to. It's perfect in conjunction with the trainers and interfaces — anywhere you need to plug in your guitar that's not an amp, use the ZBox and restore the feel of your guitar!

Love It

This box does what it says. It can be subtle or not depending on the guitar or bass you plugin but it does bring back lost tone and you lose the icepick sound of digital highs.

MOTU Z Box

This is a must if you run your guitar straight into a tape echo . before your amp. The impedance correction is like night and day for your tone. No more mud, no loss of clarity. Try this thing anytime you experience tone sucking.. Good for correcting tonal problems with acoustic/electric guitars too.

MOTU Z Box

Awesome clarity in front of an outboard tape delay before the input jack. Balanced impedance is a must. My assigned sales rep. Matt was instrumental to my satisfaction. Thanks Matt.

Been having issues with line levels when recording directly with my guitar into my MBox. Greg Savino recommended giving this product a try. Wow, I can finally hear what Amplitude sounds like!. Greg is a great tech to help you out with issues.

This thing actually does make a difference

I was pretty skeptical of this thing, but I felt the price was not too high and I could always return it if it did not work, but it actually really does make a difference. I use a Sans Amp PSA1 and some regular pre-amps with DI and this thing really does add back some body and some harmonics to what I hear recorded. It really surprised me how improved the sound of the Sans Amp was too, which sounded good already. Very happily surprised. I have bought plenty of 40 dollar wonder things in the past and almost always been lete down, but this little guy is really working out well.

I finally decided to give this box a try since I play my guitar through an interface more than an amp anymore. Plugged it in and immediately heard a boost in the mids. I didn't realize what I was missing until I gained it. It gives you a better "amp-like" response, plus I find myself playing more.
