2DI4 Pentode Direct Box


2DI4 is a dream come true for bass players, as well as guitarists who record direct and use an amp simultaneously. It can also be used to yield character to any string instrument with a pickup (like pedal steel!), to make keyboards sound warmer, even to improve the sound of music players.
And because it has both line and mic level balanced outputs, which can be used at the same time, it can drive a variety of inputs.

As with the Creamer, a single pentode is the only gain stage. The high and low frequency boost circuits use high quality capacitors and inductors to impart fatness or top end to your signal in a very musical way.

A buffered “thru” output enables a long cable connection with your amp, without a high end roll-off.
A special DI transformer brings the output down to mic level, to drive consoles. A balanced line level output is also there for direct recording.
