MASS-DI

Online

The active Mass-DI features discrete JFET/BJT circuitry with a custom designed "mu-metal wrapped" Lundahl transformer, giving the source a natural sound with a fast and punchy transient response. It is designed for use with 1/4" unbalanced instruments (including those with piezoelectric transducers) and line level sources, with a balanced XLR microphone level output. It can also be used between an amplifier and speaker to sample amp tone directly!

Simple, elegant, responsive, and proudly hand-crafted in Canada.

i bought this just before tracking our album, and did numerous a/b tests with this in the signal chain on bass and guitar on six different preamps. without a doubt it improved the tonality, clarity, and depth in all instances! absolutely worth the small price!
