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!

  • 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.

Perfect For Live & Studio Applications

The ZED 436's wide range of outputs and its streamlined design makes it perfect for a range of applications from live band performances to intimate studio sessions. The mixer itself features a range of premium quality components that results in a powerhouse of a mixing console, delivering studio-grade signal processing with support for Phantom Power and more. Taking inspiration from previous mixer models, Allen & Heath have developed the ZED 436 with both studio engineers and FOH engineers in mind. The mixer features 32 channels of mic and line inputs plus 2 dual stereo inputs, making it ideal for larger studio sessions and FOH use. Other features include a 4-band EQ, 4 sub-groups, 6 auxillary sends and a 7 x 2 matrix.

USB Connectivity

One of the most unique features of the ZED 436 is the built-in USB connection. Nowadays a common requirement for live sound and music production is the ability to send audio to and from a computer. With the ZED 436 this is easier than ever, simply connect a USB lead to your mixer with the other end connected to your device on your computer, select the USB routing on the mixer and you're ready to go. Recording CD quality audio from live performances is now easier than ever.


Taken from the highly successful PA series from Allen & Heath, the DuoPre pre-amps feature a two-stage design with controlled amounts of gain in each stage. The way the gain staging is evenly distributed results in better control of your signal level. A large amount of the gain comes from the first stage, minimising any unwanted noise. Line level signals are ran through the second stage of the pre-amp via the line input jack, resulting in less noise even with a higher input impedance.

MusiQ 4-Band EQ

The ZED-436 also features a premium-quality 4-band EQ , that was originally found in the renowned GL2220 mixer. The ZED-436 has incorporated this feature for optimising audio quality as well as the quality of the signal itself. The MusiQ EQ features an optimised slope (Q Factor) allowing you to equalise individual instruments with ease.
