The Ultimate Sonic Turd Polisher

Makes anything sound better into anything.

Fantastic for acoustic guitar

I love Tech 21 stuff - I've owned various amps and pedals over the years and it's always been top notch, bulletproof stuff. I hate the sound of piezo pickups (generally speaking) and decided to give this thing a try. It's expensive, but not the most expensive of the tone-shaping DI boxes. Build quality is great. I put the Blend knob up all the way and it does a good job of removing the piezo quack. Very versatile tone controls. The mid shift is a nice feature and makes it extremely handy. I've been using this for a few months now in an acoustic duo and I want from hating my live acoustic tone to being pretty well satisfied. If they made this box with a built in compressor I'd buy one ASAP.

Do it all tone machine

This DI works great whether you play bass, acoustic, or electric guitar. Works just like the front end of most amps you would plug into. Very quiet and reliable. I have this on the end of my signal chain so I can play a gig without a backline if necessary.

Para Driver V2 DI

This box has accomplished what I wanted it to. I have the RPM in my rack setup and wanted a pedal to mirror what I get from my rack setup, and this one does just that. I like having control over the mids. Had the PBDDI and it was very nice but not what I was looking for, that one mirrors the RBI. Now I can get my tone in my rack setup or my pedal board setup for those gigs going right to the board.

A lot more versatile than previous version

This unit is so versatile that I still haven't being able of figure out what it can't doMy bass is a complete new instrument, I use it when I mix bands live and in studio and can't wait to use it on drums
