Cheapest reamp box around, and just as good as the others
The heading says it all really. The famous names in reamping charge 2 or 3 times as much for their boxes, and they're really no better.
The level control has a decent range on it, there's a +4/-10 switch, and a ground lift. What more do you need? It's tiny, really well built, and bright yellow (which is surprisingly useful in a dark studio).
I've run white noise through it and null tested the before and after signals - there's a very slight loss of high end, but no more than you'd expect running audio through a transformer, and no more than other reamp boxes.
All-in-all, a great product. If you record electric guitar/bass, you should have one of these in your tool kit.
With limited budget and space in my small home studio I bought this Daccapo reamping box to help expand my recording options and it has been very useful in two main ways.
Firstly, in the more common use for these boxes, I've used it successfully for re-recording guitar tracks using a DI signal. The output seems clean and the level control knob allows for matching and even further driving if desired. As the unit accepts balanced a input signal, it can also be placed suitably far from the recording interface.
Secondly, this can also be used in a live recording situation to minimise equipment needed. I have DI-ed a guitar to the interface for recording and outputted the signal through the Daccapo to the amp to provide a live sound. The DI and Daccapo may then also be used to re-record the track later. Though you may need to check interface latency for this.
Both of these applications allow for maximum use with a minimal amount of microphones. It's not just guitars you can use it for either. Reamping snares is also common as this is essentially an impedance matching device.
With its low price I'm very happy with this little box. The only downside is that now I've got one I wish it had two channels so I could do even more with it, though I suppose I should just buy another! It also looks cool and is pretty small with a very solid build. I'm very pleased with this device, especially for its price.
