  • Can be used either as a direct recording preamp with speaker simulation or as an active standard DI box

  • Ground lift switch

Great little DI
Nifty1, 11.05.2017
I?ve always been a little disappointed with my bass tone when recording at home. It just never quite had the punch I wanted it to.

I?m a guitar player, not a bass player, so I don?t have any great bass gear to play with.

I spotted the Sansamp, but for the amount of bass playing I need, I didn?t want to spend all that money to get a decent DI tone.

Then I spotted this Vtone on Thomann when I was browsing and I thought it can?t be any good for the silly low price ? but what have I got to lose.
I ordered it and it arrived within a couple of days, excellent service from Thomann again.

I have to say, for the price, I am extremely happy with it ? it does exactly what I wanted it to do.
It makes a DI bass have much more body and punch and helps me sit it perfectly in my mixes.

The drive doesn?t really seem to do a huge amount when turned to near the top end, for me anyway, but I can easily put a fuzz VST on the track if I need to.

So although not a Sansamp copy it certainly is an excellent DI modeller for recording, especially at the silly low price.

A bass player friend wants to borrow it sometime to try it through his live setup ? that will be interesting ?

It's Got To Be 5 Stars
30.12.2014
For a good while now I've been hearing about D.I boxes.
Mostly about a certain American one but slowly and surely the BDI21 was getting mentioned.
When I saw how cheap it is my first thought was " Can't be that good."
Boy was I wrong.As I say it kept getting mentioned on various bass player sites
so I saved it in a wish list for " sometime "

At the start of the month I was ordering for Thomann and it was added as an afterthought.Very good decision.Not being the main item I ordered it remained in the box until tonight.

Why didn't I try this earlier ? It brings so much to the party ! One simple little box and so simple to use. To start I just copied the examples that were in the instructions. Good decent tones all of them.Some experimenting can only reveal more.

If your bass was a 20w bulb in a dark room using the BDI21 turns it into a 100w bulb.It just lifts your bass tone to a better level.Coupled with the fact if your amp packs in this can save the day DI'd into the PA or save your back from lugging amps upstairs.

Seriously before thinking of changing pickups or basses try one of these first,it could save you a fortune.If you're concerned about reliability well here's the easy answer Buy 2.

For the same price some strings cost it's an amazing bit of kit.

Try one I'm glad I did.
