I found a way to power the Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre by using the cable with a 2.1mm right angle and 2.5mm (red) right angle barrel connector and reverse (center positive) polarity designed to power Line 6 DL4/MM4 digital modeling pedals, Eventide Factor, some Electro-Harmonix and Voodoo Lab Pedal Switcher and Control Switcher. You have to run it through the L6 connector on the Voodoo Lab which changes it from regulated 9V to unregulated. I tried it and it worked great and the cable is only $3.50 (it also comes with the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus). You can also purchase a stagebug made by Radial for $99 and run two 9V outputs into the stagebug. As long as there is no danger in damaging your PZ-Pre I see no reason not to use the red chord. I can't find any info online that says it's safe though.

It is untested, and therefore, not recommended to use the L6 output to power the PZ-Pre.

I hope that helps!

Its a potential voltage mismatch that we cannot guarantee will be safe for the pedal, therefore we don't recommend plugging it in that way to err to the safe side.

If you want send me your PZ-Pre and it's original power supply to test out, I can probably give you a better answer. ;)
