Rupert Neve Designs RNDI by foldback
This is an excellent sounding direct box, hands down the best I've ever heard. Try it and you'll hear the difference, it sounds "sweet" in the high frequencies. I detest describing sound with words but this is as close as I could come.
The RNDI makes my Stratocaster sound like it's from another world, almost acoustic in tone, it's so transparent and musical.
I never thought a DI box could be so different but this one is amazing, very much worth the price.
The steel enclosure has a nice feel and provides additional shielding that you don't get from extruded aluminum.
The RNDI is capable of taking anything from musical instrument level input all the way up to the output from a power amplifier. A switch on the unit changes the input level.
My advice, try it! It's the best!
Good music to all!
