About this item



Elevate your sound to the power of Z

All of the clean gain & Vari-Z control of the Cloud Microphones CL-Zi in an active DI for bass, guitar, & keyboard players!

Variable Impedance Control

Shape the tone of your mic or instrument with the Vari-Z knob. In Mic Mode, the impedance values range from 150-15k Ohms. In DI Mode the range is roughly 100x, or about 15k-1.5Meg.

Variable High-Pass Filtering

Continuously variable high-pass filtering @ -6dB per octave works in tandem with the variable impedance control for even greater tonal shaping.
