Product Details

Behringer BDI21 V-Tone Bass Amp Modeler / DI Box

There are DI boxes...and then there's the V-TONE BASS BDI21—the feature-packed analog DI box built especially for bass.

Not Your Average DI Box
The BDI21 combines the features of an active DI (direct injection) box with our proprietary tube emulation circuitry. It’s like having a truckload of vintage tube amps right at your toes! The Blend control allows you to mix the amount of tube emulation you want with your direct bass signal. And if you don’t want to use the tube emulation feature, just step on the switch and the ADI21 functions as a superb active DI box.

So Easy to Use
With its dedicated DRIVE, TREBLE, BASS, LEVEL, and PRESENCE dials, the BDI21 DI box goes above and beyond, giving you vintage tube tones for some funked-up slap, gonzo overdrive and everything in-between. You can use the BDI21 as a recording output DI, with tube emulation, or as a standard active DI box, when running in bypass mode. The output is laid out on 1/4" TS or balanced, gold-plated XLR connectors. There's also a ground lift switch that eliminates typical ground loop hum problems. You can power this bad boy with a 9V battery or our PSU-SB DC power supply (not included).

When it comes to DI boxes, you can go with simple injection, or plug into the BDI21 to add some badass tube-like fuel injection to your bass.

Behringer BDI21 V-Tone Bass Amp Modeler / DI Box
Behringer BDI21 V-Tone Bass Amp Modeler / DI Box is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap backup for my Sansamp pedelI use a Tech21 Sansamp pedel for my live pre-amp and for recording. This is a great backup. The tonal variation is a little different control wise. But with some tweaking you can get it close. Hey it's $30. Still nothing beats the Sans for Bass Guitar tone.
