Product Description

For an unplugged sound that's rich, loud and electrifying, step on the V-Tone Acoustic Driver DI ADI21. This amazing little box is essential for piezo-equipped guitars and will make your acoustic guitar sound come to life!

Features:

- Analog modeling acoustic guitar preamp/stompbox with DI recording output
- Authentic tube/microphone modeling circuitry provides the natural warmth and presence, as if your acoustic guitar was miked through a tube pre-amp
- Ultra-musical 3-band EQ with sweepable mids for accurate feedback control and to eliminate the harsh harmonics of piezos
- Super-high impedance to retain maximum signal integrity and dynamics
- Dual DI mode for either direct recording output with tube/microphone emulation or standard active direct injection box in bypass mode
- Output available on 1/4" TS or balanced, gold-plated XLR connectors
- Ground lift switch eliminates typical ground loop problems
- Runs on 9 V battery or the Behringer PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)
- High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
- Conceived and designed by Behringer Germany

Great Sound, Naturally

By their very nature, piezo pickups tend to be very bright, with somewhat reduced bass response and warmth. The ADI21 combines the features of an active DI (direct injection) box with the proprietary microphone/tube emulation. If you don't want to use the emulation feature, the ADI21 also functions as a superb active DI box. The Blend control allows you to mix the amount of modeled tone with your instrument's normal output. The resulting sound is more natural with smooth saturation, just as if your guitar were being miked.

EQ and More...

Armed with an onboard 3-band EQ, with sweepable mids to keep feedback under control, the ADI21 effectively eliminates the harsh harmonics of piezo pickups. The output is laid out on 1/4" TS or balanced gold-plated XLR connectors, which can be used to send a low-impedance signal to the mixing console or straight to tape. You also get a ground lift switch to eliminate annoying ground loop hum problems. You can power this little lifesaver with a 9 V battery or the PSU-SB DC power supply (not included).

Putting some acoustic glory into your recordings or live performances has never been this easy -- or incredible-sounding. Try the V-Tone Acoustic ADI21 and you will quickly discover just how affordable great acoustic sound can be.

Customer Reviews
2.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good sound at a good price."
Sound: Make my guitar sound great. Feature: I haven't had much use for the mid-frequency knob, pad switch, or ground switch. The level, blend, and equalizer knobs are pretty much set where I want them now. Ease of Use: It took some experimentation to get the settings right. Quality: It seems well made and durable. Only time will tell. Value: Compared to other pre-amp/DIs, this was a good value. The Wow Factor: If I hadn't needed a pre-amp for my passive pickup, I wouldn't have looked at it. Overall: I don't expect to need to replace it, unless it were lost or stolen.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worthless Warranty"
Overall: This item was defective shortly after receiving it. Returned it to the company at my expense for repair or replacement under the warranty. 5 months later it is clear they have no intention of doing either. Others have had a similar experience. Stay away from Behringer!!
