Live electric bass rig

This setup is ideal for a live high-quality electric bass rig. The Z-TONE control will affect both the tone of the DI signal to the FOH (front of house) and the signal sent to your on-stage amplifier.

Live electric bass rig with pedalboard

Z-TONE Buffer Boost is the ideal first pedal on your pedalboard. It buffers your guitar signal to drive pedals and amps with the best integrity and purity of tone. Z-TONE control will open a new palette of tones from your guitar or bass and the boost switch will add that edge for solos–with maximum level and minimum possible noise. Here, Z-TONE DI is used to split the signal between FOH direct and to your amp.
