The HDI Studio Grade 1-channel Active Instrument Direct Box was designed by Radial to be their most impressive direct box yet. Equipped with top-notch components and a set of powerful controls, it's easy to capture great tones with minimal tweaking. The Color control is especially useful because it blends the transparent clean tone with amp-like distortion. It has a custom output meter that makes it easy to monitor your level with a single glance. The HDI has mic and line-level outputs that give it even more versatility. When used onstage, you can send your direct signal to the FOH engineer, eliminating the need to mic up your amp.
