Comments about BBE Magnum DI Direct Box:

Got this through a Stupid Deal. Carefully tested with a Mackie Pro FX12 mixer and Mogami cables, with Numark headphones. First a Fender Pbass. Couldn't hear the difference between a direct connection to the board and the DI connection. I tried it over and over. Then I tried an electric guitar. It was very difficult to tell the difference, but the DI output seemed a tiny bit brighter and warmer. Not bad at all.

I plan on using this if the house can handle my bass, and I don't have my bass amp, which has a DI output. Or, as is often the case, a fellow guitarist is having trouble getting volume in the pa due to a poor impedance match etc. I will probably loan it out more than use it myself, with confidence that it does sound GOOD!

    Comments about BBE Magnum DI Direct Box:

    I like to use active DI's with Bass Guitars. I've been using Rolls ADB2's but wasn't satisfied with the bass tone coming through the Rolls. Picked up a couple of these BBE Magnum DI's on SDOTD at a great price. First impression: these are heavy (the weight comes from the steel case, there is no transformer inside). Second impression: the bass guitars have more low end definition, more punch. Our 2 bass guitarists, who have 25 years of live performance each, noticed the improvement in bass sound immediately. I've used the Radial active DI's and like their tone, but I've found that a guitar can easily overdrive and clip the input signal when our guitarists (Taylor T3, Taylor T5 and bass guitars) really play out hard...I have not witnessed the input being clipped on the BBE Magnum DI's. Perhaps the BBE's have higher supply voltage rails for the Op-Amps then the Radials do? The signal is also very clean, no buzzing or hash.

    Were BBE's marketing people Tom Selleck fans? It's funny too me that the model name of these remind me of the TV series he starred in.

          After trying 2 other DI boxes that added noise to my bass, this one finally gave me what I was looking for. Quite operation and a clean signal for recording.

              Comments about BBE Magnum DI Direct Box:

              I was hoping these would measure up to my Radial JDI Duplex or at least be better than my Behringer Ultra DI 100. Unfortunately that was not the case. The BBE DI sounds a bit flat and plasitcky, lacking in depth or detail. Even the Behringer sounds more musical. The BBE was tolerable, but bland on bass guitar, but when I tried it on my digital piano, it turned the sound into pure cheese, so I had to send it back. On a positive note they seem sturdy, sturdier than the Behringer boxes. In this price range I would forget about BBE and look at the similar priced Radial boxes, they are the industry standard. Or if you need to save money, the Behringer is truly a good bet, and performs quite adequately. The BBE is disappointing.
