Super piece of kit. I never gig without it. I use it in all sorts of venues, small and large. I pair it with my Markbass CMD121p and New York extension cab. The dual channels is great for quickly switching tones when you need to slap for a bit or even boost your volume. I don't use the boost switch I have it set to mute which is great for tuning.

I've gone through multiple different DI boxes and this is the one I've settled on as the tone I get out if it is perfect for me.

Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.

Almost perfect, especially for the use of two instruments.

Maxer, 27.06.2018
For my kind of use I found it perfect! I use it for over a month connecting the bass (active) to input 2 (the 3 pre-shape curves are good for macro adjustments, then with the bass controls you end the fine adjustments). The contrabass or bass fretless instead connect them to input 1 by selecting the "piezo" mode, with all the advantages of the excellent equalization available on this channel.
The Boost and Mute functions change them according to the needs. The quality and cleanliness of DI fully justifies the reputation enjoyed by the Radial DI: always at the top of the range; but beyond all sound is the best part of this Pre and its greatest strength. It is clear that we enter a field made of personal tastes, but in my opinion the sound is one of the Bassbone's greatest strengths; I find that it has an extremely natural, clean and very respectful tone of the instrument used; much less intrusive than the Sansamp, much less colorful than the VT Bass and all in all even less artificial than the EBS Microbass (all similar Pre that I used with satisfaction for several years in the past).
I add only that since I own the Bassbone I no longer have any fear to present myself on stage without my amplification and to enter directly into the MIX from the DI of the Bassbone. I bring my instruments, the Bassbone, a good pair of headphones and with a well-adjusted spy I can calmly leave at home head and crates without any regrets.
The only real flaw that this equipment (... given the cost, I find it a completely unforgivable lack! ...) is the absence of a built-in tuner. Unfortunately, having the tuner in line is an essential requirement for me, so in addition to the bass I'm forced to always carry around a mini pedal board with Bassbone and tuner; if Radial had even included only a small but efficient tuner, it would have been the perfect Stand-Alone Pre-amplifier!
