The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

The Radial Tonebone PZ-Deluxe offers studio specification pre amplification for acoustic instruments, with a low noise front end capable of exceptional dynamics no matter what type of pickup system is used. For piezo transducers, a special PZB gain stage increases the input impedance to 10 meg-Ohms- eliminating the explosive peaks that are common in other systems. The PZ Deluxe eliminates the need for a separate preamp - important for those that do not want to cut a hole into their vintage guitar.

The control panel is featured with input gain, 3-band semi-parametric EQ with variable mid-frequency, a three position low frequency filter and 180 DEGREE polarity reverse switches, to help eliminate acoustic hot spots that can cause audio feedback. A guitar level output splits the sound to the artist's stage amp, with the built-in Radial direct box feeding the PA system. A separate tuner output provides further flexibility for signal routing in pedal board setups. A variable power booster with set & forget level switching gives you the control to punch through the mix when needed.

With a compact design the Radial PZ-Deluxe is easily transported and is built to withstand a life on the road - offering a high quality audio output and seriously flexible signal routing capability.
