Great natural sound
26.01.2016
Great sounding DI box, let's the sound of your guitar come through.
I've tried this out through a smaller portable PA mixer system and at a full gig set up (3k rig with stage monitors and engineer). Using my Martin D28 with AER Ak15 pickup through the portable system I was able to do a direct comparison with my friends AER compact 60 which is a stunning sounding acoustic amp. To my ears the Stagebug had a much more open and natural sound. More dynamic response, a sweeter treble and a nice thump to the bass when digging in. Using this system I used the phase reverse switch and 10db pad.
Through the house PA at my local rock venue I wasn't pleased with the sound coming through the monitors. I had the pad engaged but didn't need to use the other 2 features. However, upon hearing a recording taken on the night, I was extremely pleased with the overall tone. Again, a very natural sound which I feel up until now I have never managed to quite nail with the AER pickup.
The compact size of the unit is a real bonus and I just might buy another to live in my Takemine 12 strings case as well.

Very Robust di. Has the option for flipping polarity on the di which can help with feedback onstage for any smaller setup's where a polarity flip isn't available on small mixers.

Decent sound quality, have never had any issues with any acoustic guitars put through it.
