Product Description

Whether you use it on stage or for recording the Behringer GDI21 Guitar Amp Modeler/Direct Recording Preamp/DI Box is the ultimate choice for musicians. Authentic V-TONE modeling technology recreates three of the most sought-after classic guitar amps, with three gain modes and three mic placements for a total of 27 possible configurations. You get a truckload of great amps in one convenient stomp box, allowing you to go from clean or crunch to super-fat distortion in a flash.
The GDI21 is extremely User-Friendly; operation is simple; just choose the type of amp, from the smooth Calif (Californian), the bright, punchy TWED (Tweed), or the BRIT (British) with its incredible sustain and aggressive mids. Then select the gain mode, CLN (clean), HOT or HI G (high gain). Lastly, choose the mic placement from the three available selections. This feature is a Behringer exclusive, allowing you to place the “virtual mic” in any of three positions:

(OFF X)—At the edge of the speaker cone, producing a smoother, softer sound with less midrange content

(CNTR)—Positioned at the center of the cone, for more upper mids and beefy low-end

(CLSIC)—Slightly in front of the cabinet, for high midrange content with tons of definition

Included in the GDI21 is a dedicated Drive control, for adjusting the amount of gain. This control effectively mimics the amount of push applied to the output stage of a tube amplifier, from a gentle nudge to full-out, tube-melting overdrive. Further tone shaping is provided by a highly musical 2-band EQ. The Behringer GDI21 Guitar Amp Modeler/Direct Recording Preamp/DI Box can be used for direct recording output, with speaker simulation or, when used in bypass mode, as a superb active DI box. A 1/4 inch output jack is provided for connecting to your amp and the gold-plated, balanced XLR connector will link you cleanly to the front of house console. Ground loop problems are nonexistent, thanks to the onboard ground lift switch.

If you are seeking an extremely versatile array of time-tested, classic tones, the Behringer GDI21 is for you. With the GDI21, you get the sound of three classic guitar amps and a superb DI box, all for the price of a single stomp box!

Not An Amp Modeler

Product Review

Think of this box as another distortion pedal. That is really all it is. It is NOT an amp modeler. The distortion sounds you'll get may approximate the ones from the amps it claims to represent but you will NOT hear or feel amp responsiveness or clarity, even on the "clean" setting. So, DON'T buy this to use in place of your amp. You won't like it. DO buy it if you would like a really dirty distortion sound.

Well worth the money

Product Review

When I play in my regular band I use a guitar amp. But I also do freelance gigs, including me as the only backing to a singer at nursing homes.. Less equipment is ideal. So I bring a PA head, one speaker, my guitar and pedals. Instead of playing thru an amp, I use this device direct into the PA head. The tweed setting, and the bottom settings on the other switches, and I’m good to go. Does it sound as good as a good guitar amp ? No, but it is suprisingly good, especially for $30 !

Nice tones

Product Review

For the price, you can’t complain. Really makes my Gretsch 5420T come alive. From clean to overdriven tones, it’s a very versatile pedal.

perfect for electric-guitar-in-board

Product Review

This is the perfect DI-plus-drive for playing straight into the PA. I don't snob-out about it being Behringer - it works and life's too short for cheap-drama. After years of effects playing, I only used a driven-setting and clean setting, which this does with a foot tap. The Cali, Brit & Tweed amp models (Mesa, Marshall & Fender, respectively) can be tweaked to just the right drive level - I like a rockabilly tweed. The effects-off has adjustable volume boost and super clean sound for almost acoustic sounds with my Gibson LPJ. Slap-bass settings are sufficient for direct-through-board with by Grabber bass, but not enough slap-pop. Easily fits in a guitar case. Mine was a darker color blue than the picture, and the plastic is thick and tough with no issues, unlike bendy tin-metal housing. Make sure to get the correct AC adapter for 9V & 50mV. The Behringer adapter has extra headroom with 100mV, but not so much that it will fry out this little guy.

the best

I have two and intend to get more as they are so inexpensive

Great but input "pops" when the battery gets old.

Your general opinion of this product.

I've had about 100 od/dist pedals and this is the only one that sounds just like a Marshall of Fender

It is heavier than you would expect

It has the real amp tone , it makes you want to play, not endlessly adjust

No scratches after several years

Simple and solid
