« Cheap DI »Published on 02/06/12 at 15:03
Intuitive: you plug the guitar (or keyboard) jack on the base, and an XLR microphone cable with symmetrical signal and lowered impedance (microphone level) is fed to the console.
A second Jack socket in parallel allows the guitarist to plug in his amp.
-1 ground lift, as usual.
-1 Switch to toggle btw inst/line level or speaker level input
Possibility of parallel connection too the speaker of a guitar amp.
The pattern is printed on the canister solid (necessary because this accessory is still lying on the ground and walk on it easily).
Conclusion: Simple and sufficient.
Sound quality sufficient for most needs.
No need to put more expensive for the majority of uses, especially for a guitar or keyboard.
Well, if you want the ultimate in terms of its fidelity, an active box would be better because I do not guarantee the quality of small internal transformer.
I've never tried it on a bass guitar because I have better Di-Box that I reserve for difficult cases such as low.
But in most cases, it should.
Di-box economic doing its job.
