Radial StageBug SB-2 Passive Compact DI Direct Box

Small enough to fit in your guitar case, the StageBug DI box sounds great on keyboards, bass, or acoustic guitar, thanks to the Eclipse ET-DB3 transformer.

Needed a new DI for bass after a 2 year hiatus and wanted passive for reliability on stages where I will or will not have control over the PA or power source, because my bass has a high output, and the amp I want has a post level/eq out. It was between the Radial Pro and this because I've had the J48 & JDI before, I really like the RNDI and the Telefunken, but didn't need to spend that much. The Pro is decent and some would think more low end, to me it sounded too full tone fake when I heard it. This sits in a mix well and isn't lacking in tone in the grand scheme of a live setting, or getting a good recording, and it fits in the case of my bass so I always have it. I use it with a QSC CP8 at home and will be getting another Orange head.I've played bass 32 years, played on some good sized stages, and recorded, I've heard bass through a $20 passive DI, an active Boss, the Radial's, an Avalon, I had the JDI into a DW Fearn hand wired tube mic preamp and that sounds glorious, but I don't regret getting this DI, and will be getting another for my guitar.
