  BRING Z-TONE TO YOUR PEDALBOARDAfter several decades of studying the entire guitar/bass signal chain, we learned that most inputs on mixers and audio interfaces leave a lot to be desired. Out of this realization, the Z-TONE DI was born. This premium active direct box is packed with unique features for both flexible routing and tone shaping, designed to preserve the natural tone of your instrument.
First, an active/passive pickup switch adapts to any instrument to keep your signal as clean as possible. Next, both PURE and JFET circuits give you more tonal options, from completely transparent and colorless to adding subtle midrange focus and warmth. It’s like having two preamps in one. At the maximum impedance, you’ll find your sound tighter, sharper and more precise. Increase the load and the sound becomes thicker and more bold.
 KEY FEATURES• Active/Passive pickup selector
• PURE channel for transparent sound
• JFET channel adds warmth & harmonics
• Z-TONE variable impedance control creates 
a wide range of tones
• 20 dB pad for extended operating range
• Balanced & unbalanced outputs
• Link out splits signal to amps & pedals
• Ground lift switch eliminates buzz & hum
• Rugged, stage-ready metal housing
