The essence of Eden tone in a handy little direct box.

The WTDI World Tour Direct Box/Bass Preamp from Eden is something fans have been requesting for a while, and now Eden delivers! Much more than a direct box, the WTDI is like bringing a little Eden preamp to every stage and studio gig!

Keep one handy in your gig bag, case, or on your pedalboard and use it to Eden-ize that junk box of an amp they gave you for backline at the gig by going direct into the power amp section. Or use it to add a 2nd, 3rd, or solo/boost channel to your current rig. The WTDI also works extremely well with acoustic guitars/basses.

The rugged WTDI Direct Box/Bass Preamp is true bypass with both 1/4" and XLR (with ground lift) outputs. Besides 3 bands of tone control with bass boost and mid-shift functions, volume, and gain controls, Eden added variable compression and their legendary Enhance control.

All this comes in a compact box complete with universal power supply. Also runs on most 12-18 volt-capable pedalboards and power bricks.

Features
  • Eden tone in a compact direct box/preamp
  • Bass, Mid, Treble, Volume, Gain, Master, Enhance, and Compressor knobs
  • Mid-shift and bass boost functions
  • 1/4" and XLR (with ground lift) outputs

Eden tone that's supremely portable and affordable. Order now!

    Eden WTDI: Great 'stomp box' DI!

    I am a guitar player and I bought this unit for my wife who is a bass player. I ordered this unit 5 days ago and recevived the unit 2 days ago and just couldn't wait till Christmas. She's digging it. Great rock and metal tones. I can't speak for funk or other styles.

    My only gripe would be that I cannot get any kind of distroted tone out of it but again, not really my style.

    I even hooked this up to my old Martin Acoustic and was blown away by the tonal possiblities offered by this little unit.

    I may have to buy another to preserve our marital bliss.
    3 EQ Pots and 2 Switches: Low, Mid, and High pots and Low Boost Switch and Mid Boost Switch. Turn like silk with zero noise and scream quality. The switches seem a little overkill to me on my wife's little 1x15 bass combo however they may have great punch for a larger rig or a PA with adequate subs.

    Gain pot: I was not able to coax out a decent distroted tone but I play clean. Anything much past 2/10 and the signal gets muddy.

    Enhance: This is your tone shaper right here. There's awesome multifaceted tones all along the range of this pot.

    Compression: VERY good, elminates the need for a seperate compressor. Sustaine till the cows come home.

    Level: Volume, level, you get it. This unit is a beast, I would start around 4-6/10 and work your way up.

    True bypass which is nice just to check out your amps previous tone and again wonder why it took so long to buy this unit.

    Indicator light: Brighter than a million exploding suns. Eden, tone down the blue LED, there's already plenty of great tone going on here. The durned thing is absolutly blinding which I dimmed down with a sharpie.
    Solid. Metal construction. Could make for an excellent industrial door stop for a missle silo or useful for braining the undead come the zombie apocalypse and I am confident it would still be able to perform like new.
    for the price and you get a DI, EQ, and Comp. Saves pedal board space. No brainer.

    Bad Choice For Stomp Box Use...

    Tried to use this pedal as a stomp box and found it not to work along with my other pedals in line. I tried it in various positions and it had issues in all positions. I used the ac adapter that it came with and placed it right after my tuner and then 3 other pedals after it. It worked when turned on, but when I stomped it into bypass, I would have no sound at all. If I placed it after all my pedals, it sounded horrible. The only way I got it to work right- is on its own. It wouldn't even work with just the tuner connected before or after it.

    However, when I used it on its own, it sounded good and I liked the deep bass option. But I must also say that it does not sound as good as when I have played through an Eden WT800 or 1205 amp.

    Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

    Sale is ON!!!! Getting my second one FINALLY! Everyone should have several of these! My first one is become an extension of my bass, and is dedicated there. These are NEVER on sale! I wish I could afford 3 more! I gig twice a week. This box is THE shizzle! I use it live and recording. It works on MANDOLINS even! Try it on your banjo! We all know how HARD it is to get that thing RIGHT!
    This box also works like the front end of an amp. I can easily generate gain overdrive with the box itself using a passive bass. The output will easily push my V4B into crunch. We all know you only get one volume out of those old boys when they drive. You have to go for tone and then mic up to push power anyway if you want to keep some hearing.
    Tone is where it is at. Buy a Buck-twenty nine Rogue bass, and this pedal and watch people come up to you after the gig and say " HOW DO YOU GET THAT SOUND, MAN?" Says something when they are bass players too, playin thru 3 grand worth of stuff! Buy 2 while they are on sale!!!!
    Tape a drink umbrella on the back over the blue LED and it reflects down awesomely to illuminate the knobs! I only turn the master volume anyway once it is set. Start with ALL knobs straight up and back off stuff from there. you will be dialed in after 30 seconds!

    Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

    Eden's WTDI Is a great preamp/DI box, excellent construction, responsive controls, I love the Bass boost switch as well as the Mid-shift select button, and to top it off, comes with a built in compressor, to sum it all up.. You've got Total Tonal control ! The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating.. when actuating the bypass button, you hear that audible "pop" through your speakers (I think Eden could have produced a quieter switch for this unit)

      Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

      I have had the pleasure of using many preamps and DI's over time such as Sansamp Bass Driver, MXR M-80, and Sansamp Para Driver. I have yet to play through a bass DI that compares to the Eden WTDI in pure musical quality. This preamp truly captures the "Eden tone." To my ears, the Eden tone is a tight bottom end, punchy low-mids that will cut through any mix, and a slight zing on the high-mids/treble side. The zing that you hear in the highs when playing solo/practicing will disappear in the mix leaving you with an incredibly tight, punchy, incredible tone across the board. If you have ever worried about getting lost in a mix, look no further than the Eden WTDI. Also, the balanced and unbalanced outputs will allow you to send a direct signal to the board and a signal to your stage amp. This is the ultimate in bass tone my friends!

        Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

        I purchased this to use mainly as a DI and to keep on hand in case of an amp failure. The signal this unit sent (without any padding mind you) was SO HOT we could do nothing with it in the PA. We then tried removing the unbalanced out from my amp and went straight from PA to balanced out to bass. No difference, and this is how it would be run in case of an amp failure at a gig.

        From reading the reviews, it seems as if this unit works nicely for some. The DI signal was way too strong and the sound shaping ability of the preamp was not good enough to constitute keeping it as a stompbox...for me it was useless

          Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

          Before purchasing, I read all the reviews... The WTDI is one of the best purchases I have made to add quality sound to my bass rig!
          I have not used the DI yet, but the pre-amp, magic control and compresser are all excellent. I am suggesting these settings as a starting point: input gain at 9-10 o'clock, output gain set at 2 o'clock, bass, mids and treble set "flat" and compression at 12 o'clock or higher. Once you get the sound you like, use the "magic knob", this is where the awesome sound kicks in!
          Just remember this is a pre-amp, so if you have too much gain, turn down the input level, and increase the output level as needed.... The compresser does a great job without changing the sound quality.
          I suggest you don't buy it, because this gives me the edge over you! The only complain I read was the blue bright LED, well Eden must read the reviews, because they changed it to a nice not so bright red LED!

            Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

            I have to agree with what other people are saying about this pedal. It sounds fantastic and is easy to dial in great bass sounds at a live gig. This pedal will make a marginal bass sound great. With the dual outputs you send the XLR out to the house PA and the 1/4" out to your amp. You may have to pad/buffer the signal going to your amp if you're sending a hot signal to the board as both output signals are identical. This is money well spent,...no more headache trying to get a good sound out of a marginal amp or guitar. I haven't used the enhance knob yet when playing live because to me it sounds like a midrange cut and I don't personally care for that but I see it would suit certain styles of playing. The compressor set at 10:00 - 12:00 does a great job without squashing too much. I used it at a gig last night and had two people compliment me on my bass sound.

            Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

            This pedal is well made and sports controls that provide wide ranging effects. However, the result, for my tastes, are a bit cold sounding. It does give a very high fidelity result but is in no way providing a tube-like character. The compressor works well for a "single knobber", the Enhance control is quite interesting (cranking up the hi-fi aspect). This unit takes a lot of time and tweaking to give a balanced sound that is not boomy or exaggerated. Overall, not bad, probably best in use as a DI (which I did not need). If you are looking for a smooth analogue tube sound you should look elsewhere. And the LED would be blinding on a dim stage.

              This box is amazing. I record throught it 100% now! It will give a good bass or good amp just a little more of just what you want, a warm full yet punchy tone. What it really can do is replace a bass amp thru a P.A. or fix a marginal guitar or amp. No Kidding! Try it with every instrument or amp you have! Not just Bass. Your friends will all want it, you will have a hard time getting it back!
