The Radial PZ-Deluxe begins with a choice of direct input for acoustic guitars with built-in electronics for magnetic pickups. A second PZB booster stage can be turned on that changes the input gain structure and introduces an ultra high impedance to better match piezo transducers. The result is a smoother response without the usual peaks that plague most piezo systems. This makes the PZ-Deluxe ideal for upright bass, violin and other acoustic instruments.

A four band semi-parametric EQ provides voicing while a 3 position high-pass filter eliminates resonance that is the primary cause of on-stage feedback. The PZ-Deluxe is outfitted with a stage amp output for the artist plus a balanced Radial DI output to feed the PA system. These are equipped with a 180 deg polarity reverse to help eliminate frequency bumps when both the PA and stage amp are on. A ground lift switch on the XLR helps eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops. A third tuner out works with an on-board footswitch to mute for tuning while a second footswitch engages a variable power booster for solos both of which should help bring a more polished show to the stage.

And as with all Radial product, the PZ-Deluxe is made from heavy duty 14 gauge steel and baked enamel finish for maximum durability. All switches and knobs employ metal casings for longer life.
