zZounds Expert Review
Bass players know how important a DI is. The Ampeg SCR-DI allows you to get the growly Ampeg bass tone, without carrying a 8x10 rig. It has the signature Ampeg "Ultra Hi" and "Ultra Lo" buttons for that scooped-mid tone. It also has the Ampeg "Scrambler" overdrive built in. The Ampeg SCR-DI is a great way to get some dirty Ampeg overdrive -- perfect for someone trying to a huge Ampeg sound out of any PA or studio setup.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A Worthy Investment."
Sound: Using just as a D.I., your sound is clean and clear with no degradation of tone. When you engage the amp modeling side, you can dial in everything from a fat, chunky Motown B15 warmth (dial in a little scrambler to create the tube break-up), or dial in the clean and bright sounds that lend an ear to a Marcus Milleresk tone. The scrambler side goes from a subtle buzz of tubes breaking up to the full on fuzz of Geezer Butler doing the bass intro of N.I.B. Feature: I found the aux plugs fascinating. You can plug your iPhone direct into the pedal and play along with songs you are working on, a feature on the bulky and expensive multi effects processor. Match that with the headphones jack, and you have the ultimate in practice machines. Ease of Use: This D.I. is well labeled, easy to read, and very intuitive. If you can operate the most basic amp plate, this will be a breeze. It will operate on batteries (9V). I would recommend getting a 9V power cable with plug. It will chew up a regular battery in 4 hrs. of use. Quality: This pedal is solid and sturdy. Switches have great snap. The pedal could use a guard, or barrier for the knobs. I could see where you might accidentally bump one during the excitement of a gig. Value: For the features, tone, adaptability to any board, style, environment I don't know of anything close to this pedal. Quality from start to finish. Even if you don't think you need a D.I. or a pedal...you need this. Manufacturer Support: It's Ampeg, They have come a long way from 6 years ago, when they didn't care about their customer, but the value of their name. The R&D department nailed it with this D.I. I called them, just to see, and they were very helpful. As far as Zzounds, they are awesome. No complaints on either front. The Wow Factor: Completely blown away. My band mates were stunned, and understood my elation. I don't know that I have ever been this satisfied with any other piece of gear. And that's making a statement, as I love all my equipment. Overall: I needed a D.I. box, but I wanted something with character. It takes me years of research to buy something, I'm careful with my investments. When these hit NAMM this year, they created such a buzz and caught my attention. I am a professional, and have friends that are very in demand players. After consulting with them, as they had hands on with the Scrambler D.I., I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger. Was I ever glad. The features are insane, the sound and functionality left me giddy. Seriously, one of the best investments ever.
