    Great box for basses

    I love the sound I get out of this little box! Using my fretless electric and my upright through it, I don't have to use an amp! Straight into the board and it always sounds great, regardless of which bass I am playing at the time.

    Works well for what it says it does

    This Di/Preamp, does exactly what it claims to, and does it very well.
    I'm using an upright and an electric with it onstage and it sounds very good

    Throw the bass a bone

    I expected better from Radial. My biggest complaint is this pedal will not work with batteries, or phantom power. It uses a very uncommon voltage (15v). There is no way to get the wall wart out of the picture. Also the power cable for the unit is very short and wimpy (invest in an extension cord) I don't understand why it couldn't work on phantom power like a good active DI should. I play about 100 shows a year and have used this pedal in a multitude of settings over the last three years. I still take it out if I need to play upright and bass guitar on the same show and can only take one (or no) amp. Issues aside it works well as a DI (especially with passive and acoustic basses). However it will seriously color (and compress) your sound.
