Its nearly here people. The 'Z' cable, the last piece of the puzzle.
In all our endless hours of testing pedals and signal chains, a certain few things have come to our attention. Things that we've found to make a huge impact on your tone and the way your guitar interacts with your amp.
It may come as no surprise that the output from your guitar is very different than the output that comes from an FX pedal or any piece of gear that has a standard buffered output. Your guitar pickup has so many cool things going on and seems to connect in such a musical way when you plug straight into a nice amp. I'm sure you know yourself its when we put buffers, pedals, racks in the way of that signal it can have a less than wonderful affect on that magic guitar to amp connection.
So how does the 'Z' cable help?
The 'Z' cable gets placed at the very end of your guitar chain, the last thing on your pedal board. It receives all the signals from your pedals, buffers, anything that's put into it, then sends your amplifier and signal that is almost identical to the signal that comes from your guitar.
It tricks the amp into thinking it's receiving a signal direct from your guitar.
You can fine tune this process as well so if your normal guitar tone is warm and round or bright and sharp you can dial it in with the 'REACTANCE' control. You can even decide the length of cable that you want the 'Z' cable to sound like. Long, medium, short, even an active output if you want the cable to disappear altogether.
The 'Z' cable can also be incredibly long with NO AUDIO LOSS. What appears at the start of the cable is EXACTLY what appears at the end of the cable. We have 2 standard sizes.
Stage - 4 metres, and Stadium, which is 8 metres.
