Source Audio ZIO Analog Front End + Boost

The ZIO is Source Audio’s first all-analog pedal, and includes a choice of 4 distinct preamp circuits, each with up to 20dB of additional output boost.

It's designed to take a guitar’s high impedance signal, sweeten the tone with any of its four preamp circuits, and output a strong, low impedance signal that won’t be altered by the buffered dry tones of effects pedals further down the signal chain.

The ZIO will “Make Everything Sound Better!”
