The Para Acoustic DI is a direct box plus dynamite preamp for acoustic electric instruments.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have owned an earlier version of this preamp, but the addition of the "GAIN" feature puts it over the top. The older model was perfect for a passive pickup, but it was too hot for an active preamp pickup. This newer model works equally well either way.

Just What I Was Loooking For !!
Your general opinion of this product.
I have never really thought about a DI box having these features of providing such shaping tones for my acoustic. When I discovered it and read the reviews it was the best choice for me in what I needed.

Want your acoustic(s) to sound good.
Your general opinion of this product.
No matter which of my acoustics I plug into this thing, I always seem to be able to tweek in that sweet spot which gives me the ability to give all my guitars that same basic flavor before I send it for processing. I always have the gain knob all the way down though, kinda wish it had a little more attenuation, All my guitars do got active pre-amps which I think probably isn't the exact intended use - but try it that way and you won't be quite as satisfied with that plain vanilla direct box anymore.
