Product Description

The Behringer BDI21 Bass Amp Modeler Direct Recording Preamp DI Box 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.

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 inch 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. Try the V-TONE BASS BDI21 at your local BEHRINGER dealer and find out just how great your bass can sound.

A must have for old basses!
What is your opinion of this product?
I would recommend it to anyone who regularly plays an older bass that doesn't have built in electronics. It gives your sound all new dimensions that an amp. alone just can't deliver.

A Must-Have Processor for Bass
What is your opinion of this product?
This unit makes a decent bass sound much better, and makes a higher end bass glow. It adds musical tone control without noise, and can add a tube-like quality to the sound that adds tons of richness. The tone controls are centered where they add to (rather than ruin) the sound. At its most basic use, it is a very respectable direct box. You won't be able to touch what it can do without spending A LOT more money. Behringer really got this one right. It belongs on every bassist's pedalboard, and is the effect to own if you only have one pedal. I also have the acoustic version of this pedal, which serves my upright basses equally well.

Adds a new dimension of sound!
What is your opinion of this product?
Adds a whole new character to the sound of a bass. I had always been a purist, and never used any processing with my bass. But I picked up an acoustic/electric bass that is all passive, and it needed a boast when amplified. I couldn't be happier with this device!

The Most Bang for Your Buck
Your general opinion of this product.
This product may be the best bang for the buck ever. It gives me all the bite and growl I was looking for while truly making my tone sound simply awesome! Since I have started using this at practice, my fellow band mates have commented on how bad a$$ I sound now. I love this pedal plain and simple.
