Meet the Z-TONE DI
Z-TONE DI is a premium active direct box packed with unique tone-shaping features. Whether you want more flexible routing on-stage or superior tone shaping in the studio, Z-TONE DI borrows the input circuits from IK Multimedia’s award-winning AXE I/O interface to let you do a whole lot more, and sound better doing it.
Z-TONE DI preserves the natural tone of your instrument with exceptional headroom and transient response. Whether it’s for long cable runs on stage, or to capture DI tracks in the studio, Z-TONE DI ensures every nuance and detail is carefully maintained. And Z-TONE DI is made in IK’s Modena factory and packed in a rugged metal housing for years of reliable performance.
What makes Z-TONE DI truly unique is the powerful sound-shaping options it offers.
First, an active/passive pickup switch adapts to any instrument, with adjustable input gain to easily dial in exactly the right level for your axe. PURE and JFET input channels give you more tonal options, from transparent to warm.
Z-TONE DI also offers a patent-pending variable impedance control, letting you dial shape your sound In unique ways. 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.
Z-TONE DI offers a range of output options, including balanced XLR output (with a switchable ground lift, to eliminate noise and hum), an unbalanced ¼” output, and a Link out mirroring the input signal. An optional 20 dB pad extends the useful range of the unit.
Z-TONE DI runs off a 9V battery or +48v phantom power and is made in Italy for years of reliable performance.
