Title: New Tonebone PZ-DI pedal looks promising
Post by: Noodler on June 11, 2010, 11:29:48 PM
Here's a video of Dave Martone hocking the new Tonebone PZ-DI:

This pedal provides selection of Mag/Piezo output and a few more features along with the ability to use a TRS cable.

I have a few Tonebone pedals and they are top-notch quality stuff.

I know Paul's custom switchboxes are similar in function, but thought some of you might be interested.

Thanks for posting that. Looks like a great product for all TRS magpu/piezo guitars.

They take my 1flyBOB-D concept much further by adding on/off switches for the mag & piezo pickups, the hi cut/low cut switches and the phase switch. Not bad for $250, I guess.

Oh well, it was just a matter of time before someone came out with something like that. Too bad I can only dream of actually getting my ideas out into the market place. Being poor stinks. [:(!]

Well, you did make a 2FlyBOB-DI with a Tuner loop.  Thank you.

But of course.  The tiny form factor of the 1FlyBOB is perfect and the 2Fly works great on those occasions I'm using two Flys/Niteflys.

Cool, glad those things are still working well for you. [8D]

Has anyone here used the Tone Bone PZ Select?  I saw Dave Martone's review here: http://www.tonebone.com/pzselect.php

I have a '96 Fly Deluxe (Majik Blue), a '07 Nitefly M (Tangerine Orange), and a '07 Nitefly (I put in G&L Z-coils and a custom pickguard).  I run the mags through a Fender Cyber Twin Deluxe and the peizos through a Fender Jazz King using the standard y-cable.  The cable is showing wear and I thought about just purchasing a new y-cable, but then started looking at ABY boxes and stumbled across the PZ Select.  A more expensive option to be sure, but I am already heavily invested in Parkers and have no intention of changing that.  The PZ Select seems to be specifically designed for Parker guitars (& other 'hybrids').

Hey showmeproof (are you from Missouri too?  ;)), I have often had GAS for that pedal.  Lack of funds (or more accurately, having a worse case of GAS for other items) has always limited me from buying it, but I'd love to add it to my rig someday.

Yes, I am in Missouri.  I work in STL and live about a half hour south.   I went ahead and purchased the pedal and expect it later this week.  I'll provide a review after using it a bit.

Just out of the box, but wow.  I will give a more detailed review later, but  I need to spend more time with it to understand how exactly it has effected and improved the tone.  I am left with the question, are y-cables that bad, or is this pedal that good.  The right answer is probably somewhere between the two.   Straight away improvement.

Casey, you should look up the new AX8 from Fractal. Do away with the myriad stuff and dual paths for your mag/piezo set up.  I'm a beta tester for it.  Sounds awesome!

I will Pat, thanks.  Right now, I'm really into Source Audio's stuff (especially the "One Series" pedals).  I love the idea of simple, easy to use pedals that are plug and play but have MIDI capability and controls, as well as being able to do some SERIOUSLY deep editing on the pedal via an app.  To me, it's the best of both worlds (once their MIDI control pedal comes out, along with the overdrive pedal this summer).
