PZ-Deluxe™ Specifications

The Radial PZ-Deluxe is a high performance preamp disguised as an effects pedal. One can quickly evaluate the performance by looking at the low noise design (about -120dB at all frequencies), the even order harmonics detailed in the FFT graph and of course the low distortion at the intended guitar and mic signal level range. These support the claim that the radial PZ-Pre will deliver the tone of the instrument with optimal signal transfer.
