Love this pedal

I built my solid state amplifier from the LM3886TF chip. I have a Baxandall passive pre-amp but it needed some boost and distortion. This GDI21 V-TONE pedal solves this issue and then some. It has all the tube models I was looking for. With mic placement and gain this pedal has so many tones in it I play with it for hours. The foot switch makes weird clicking sound when it pops back up. But that's the only con I have with it and I can live with that. All I can say is wow. Thank you to Sweetwater for fast shipping and service .

Guitar Amp Modeler and DI Box

I've been doing a lot of Open Mic and jamming kind of things. Cumbersome to haul a 45 pound amp around (original Bugera V22). Tried the acoustic thing a few times got spoiled right away. Just plug into the PA. I prefer electric so I got this gadget. When I was looking into this pedal everyone wanted to talk about the amp modeling and distortion. I just wanted a clean electric sound and some distortion, not distortion all the time. The more distortion you have dialed in the more hiss you get. Little out of my area of experience, this DI, stuff. Like I wondered what the foot switch was for, exactly. Usually foot switches shut the effect off and bypass everything, like a straight cord. With this when you shut the amp sims off you have a nice clean, quiet Direct Box. First I was using an old Epiphone Archtop with a floating humbucker. It sounded very nice, clean and quiet. I shut the Level control all the way off so I could use the amp sim section to change guitars. I only got to use my LPL (Les Paul Like) guitar for one song, "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." The DI mode had a nice clean sound. I set the Level up a little (be careful there is a LOT of gain available) and had some nice distortion for the solo and back off to the DI for the rest of the song. I'll be comfortable taking this box out with electric guitar and a couple of cords. (I used the Balanced output into a Mic channel)
Music background: I've been doing this for a while.

Don't hesitate, buy it!

I needed a DI for running a line to boards when playing out and for use in home recording. This little box absolutely floored me! The amp models are awesome and all the controls make it easy to dial up just about any sound you are looking for, from clean to overdriven to full-on distortion. This replaced a Digitech multi-effects pedal that I loved but was too time-consuming to make adjustments on the fly. This DI has solved that problem with quick, on-the-fly adjustments. For the price it cannot be beat. Solidly constructed, quiet, and easy to use, buy it. You won't regret it.


OK I got bittin by the DI BGI21-it just plan had the "IT Factor" Just had to see if lightning could strike twice in the same place? Went an bought the guitar unit DI GDI21. ( Besides bass, I play lead) Lightning stuck again! IT Factor number two. It dose everything it is said to do. Just nothing short of amazing, If you can't find your tone shape with this little gem. You just don't know what your looking for. It has everything from a fantastic twin tweed clean to in your face metal and everything in between. This sits on top of the amp. It says on full time. EQ on amp set flat. The pedal dose it all. Guess I'll get the DI ADI21 next and have the trio I'LL let you know how that works out.

Does what you want

If you like using stompboxes and want an amp modeling DI, this is one good, inexpensive option. I plugged it into my Focusrite interface and made a huge difference. You won't find anything that does what this pedal does for the anywhere near the price. This is going in my rig and staying there.
