Whether you're recording or on stage, you need a reliable DI box to get your guitar sound to the console with full dynamics and power - and without noise. Engineered for electric guitar, our GI100 features a switchable speaker simulation designed by Juergen Rath that so realistically emulates a 4 x 12 cabinet you may never need to mic your speakers again. The GI100 may be powered by battery or phantom power, and allows for direct connection of amplifier outputs with ratings of up to 3,000 watts. Other features include switchable input attenuation for input levels of up to +48dBu, a ground lift switch and rugged, road-proof aluminum construction.

Solid Value
Your general opinion of this product.
It works as advertised. I use it with the Boss GT-8 for live gigs. I run the GT-8 with the output set to "Combo Return" out of the "Phones" output into a Traynor YCS50 combo power amp in. The main outs run through 2 Ultra-Gs stereo to the PA for spread. Works perfect. The Ultra-G cab sim smooths the sound out and makes it slightly more natural than the GT-8 digital cab sims. I have demoed the Palmer DI, and while better than the GT-8, just could not deal with the price. This box has alot of versatility I am also going to try it off the DI output of my combo amp as the built in DI / cab sim is not great.

just what i was looking for!
Your general opinion of this product.
excellent as a speaker simulator! while the speaker sim only has an on/off switch and isnt able to replicate the nuances of pointing a mic at various parts of the speaker cone, its PERFECT for taking that stale fuzzy edge off of your distorted guitars when recording direct. i was really impressed with this thing. listening to the playback, i wouldnt have been able to say "see here boys and girls, this was recorded direct." had i not plugged it up myself. a 4 in reliability cause in a non-phantom power scenario, well... batteris can and will crap out on you when you need them most. my only wish is that it had a power cable :) my band is getting another one for the other guitarist. cheaper than most DI boxes ive seen which might be good for other aplications, but if your looking to run a distorted guitar direct without that ugly direct sound, this baby is the ticket!

guitar+amp+GI100+mixing board=COOL
Your general opinion of this product.
wait until you hear your guitar through this thing. it'll even make a cheap guitar sound great. i am using my signal processors less than i ever have. i run the guitar into my tube amp and then into this DI box and then into the mixer. Hey, don't forget to connect a speaker to protect your amp. Yeah, then bump in the 4 - 10" speaker simulation for a really nice touch.

Highly effective
Your general opinion of this product.
The Ultra G can be a bit confusing at first, and its battery operated nature annoys me greatly. The cabinet simulation is effective, but leaves a bit to be desired. Nontheless, this box is a necessity if you're looking to get a clean signal to your console or amp. For its surprisingly small price, this box is packed with more than sufficient capabilities.

Did I just get two bad ones?
Your general opinion of this product.
I have had two of these fail in a very short time. I have the DI version which I would buy again.

Excellent value.
Your general opinion of this product.
Despite the prior review, I've found no noise at all in the standard operation, and just a little bit of hiss when using the cab emulator. However in a live situation, no one is going to hear the hiss. I've heard (and used without anyone complaining) louder with some amp modelers. I've found the quality of sound in the GI100 to be louder, punchier and more pleasing with the cab emulator off while using my American Strat, however I'm sure I will find occasions (i.e. different board and speaker combinations, or room acoustics) where the cab emulator is useful. It's an extra feature that doesn't cost extra. I don't know why anyone would get Behringer's DI100 model since it seems to be the same unit as the GI100 and at the same price but without the cab emulator. I currently use the GI100 to plug my electric guitars directly in the boards at various open-mike nights. I would also not hesitate to use it to plug into my own board at a gig if my amp blew out. I also have a Behringer mixing bo
