    direct box

    This probably doesn't technically belong here, but I value the opinions more here in the analog forum. So.... could anyone recommend a good direct box for recording bass?

    I was at guitar center yesterday and they had a couple of crappy looking ones, and a decent looking dbx. I imagine the dbx would be a fine one to use, but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a better option (possibly used) on Ebay or something. Thanks.

    I'm partial to Radial's product line...their JDI model. Not cheap tho' as far as DI's go.

    so those are comparable in price... $200 on ebay it looks like. Good deal.

    Peck, you talking about the Radial JDI?

    If so, I recommend getting it from somewhere like Full Compass or Sweetwater if the price is comparable (which it is if you're saying its $200 on eBay)...Sweetwater has them for $199 free ship.

    We've used one for years and it has been rock solid whereas the lesser varieties have died or gotten busted up. The build and sound quality is top-notch.

    Yeah, sweetbeats, they both look like good recommendations.. and to be honest, they would probably both be fine for my recordings I imagine.

    I was originally responding to the first response, but I guess you responded at the same time I did...

    So.. free shipping is nice vs. paying for it on Ebay... maybe some of them on Ebay are free shipping... I don't know. But thanks for the resources... I buy all of my gear on Ebay usually. I just like live on the site... it's sad. Just kidding.

    oh and I'm kind of jealous that you have that massive 440-8. That thing is really cool.

    Cool, but a huge project...figuratively and literally.

    Other things to do with a 440-8:

    • Use it as a battering ram
    • Use it in your own home production version of 2001 Space Odyssey
    • Use it to slice vegetables (using the fan on the back of the capstan motor...watch those fingers!!)
    • Art deco bar seating...careful where you sit
    • Hook a belt up to a reel clamper and drive your stationary farm implements
