Phantom-powered DI Just for Guitar Amps

The Radial JDX 48 phantom powered guitar amp direct box takes your amp's true sound all the way to the PA. Using Class A circuitry, multi-stage filtering, and effective cabinet emulation, the JDX 48 produces a realistic amp sound in a direct feed onstage or for recording. You get a more manageable, consistent sound onstage - use it alone when miking your amp isn't an option or feedback is an issue. For a mix engineer's dream-come-true, combine a line signal with a miked one and Radial's JDX 48 power and versatility will delight with its convenience and tone.

Power Options Keep You Rocking

The JDX 48 lets you take advantage of your mixer's phantom power to eliminate the need for an external power supply giving you a cleaner-looking stage and a trusted, consistent power source that keeps your tone intact. But as we at Sweetwater know, you don't always know if phantom power will be available when you have to use a venue's PA or borrow one from someone else to do the gig. So to make sure you're never without great sound, the JDX 48 does include a power supply.

  • 48-volt phantom-powered guitar amplifier direct box with reactive load

Problem solver

A very well made and well designed piece of gear. While intended to eliminate the need for close mikes, I use the JDX48 to generate a line level signal from a favorite combo amp without a DI or FX loop. Inserted between the amp and the speaker, it gives me the full sound of the amps power section in a line level signal that feeds my stereo effects. I then send the stereo outputs to a power amp and speaker cabs. The effect is startling with the dry combo amp and the stereo effects amplified separately. The ground lift and phase switches are all pluses that make the JDX even more useful. I'm sure it functions very well as a DI for live sound too. Great box.

Limited use

This product could easily have included a variable phase in it that would enable you to simultaneously mic the amp instead of buying a seperate phaser. The highs are not able to sparkle even with eq and therefore require a mic or even better radial should have a seperate direct out to run a mic cab sim like my two notes cab sim. Radial has there own cab sim and could also couple it with their own cab sim.. An extra direct output for a variable amp cabinet sim would make this product 5 stars!
