A Good Pre-amp/Direct box
« on: July 22, 2010, 06:58:10 PM »

Hello mga sirs!

Ask ko lang kung meron pa kayo ibang alam na Pre-amp direct box aside from Sansamp Para Driver DI. Yung non-programmable lang din. Or any electric guitar direct box na may pre-amp or amp simulator w/ balanced xlr out and parallel out.

thanks in advance!

@spankyrigor, nandun pa pala yun? oooow... Matagal ko nang pinagiipunan yun, hanggang ngaun pinagi-ipunan ko pa rin. Kaso masyado nang malaki para dalhin sa gig tsaka hindi din lahat ng bar amps ok para pagsaksakan ko. Kung may makita lang akong tiny terror. hehe...

@bryanarzaga, ok sana yung artec, kaso DI box lang talaga sya and walang pre-amp.


to give you an idea sirs, i plan on using it on a PC for home pratice use then as a pre-amp during gigs. Kaya i need a small enough pedal to bring during gigs and capable of being used on it's own at home.

thanks sa mga replies sirs! i appreciate the suggestions! keep 'em coming!

i think the Sansamp is as good as it gets for electric guitar preamp/DI.

Suggestion ko bro if you need a versatile na pedal na pre-amp na kahit anong gamitin mong amp eh di ka na kakabahan kasi gumaganda ang tunog ng amp is

1) Xotic BB Preamp- i personally own one and i can say na laki ng nagagawa niya for me...lalo na kapag tinatamad akong mag dala ng buong effects ko, pag practice namin yon nalang dala dala ko....plus bakit ko siya nasabing nakakaganda ng tunog ng amp is ginamit ko na kasi siya sa isang rage amp na i think 15 watts lang pero nung ginamit ko siya na clean boost (meaning yung drive niya was set to 0) napatunog niya yung amp na sobrang fatter talaga na parang naka fender...well di naman solid pero laki talaga nung ginanda ng amp knowing na rage amp lang siya tpos 15 watts lang.... another benefit na maganda sa Xotic BB Preamp is pwede mo siya gamitin pang PC recording although di mo pwede lagyan ng drive kasi sasabog yung tunog pero kung clean na guitara lang irerecord mo...ok siya kaysa irecta mo yung guitara sa PC.....




2nd pedal na masusuggest ko sir is...

2) Sans Amp Classic by Tech21- Ok to sir lalo na kung gusto mo ng preamp kasi eto mas matapang ng drive pedal...mas madaming gain dito and basta ok siya talaga tumunog....isa to sa gusto ko mag karoon na pedal...nway maganda rin to sir kasi napapaganda niya rin yng tunog ng mga panget na amp....tapos mas ok to sa recording kasi kahit tapakan mo yung drive na merong gain di sabog yung tunog talagang parang naka drive ka talaga.....nway yon lang

For low ballers, bilhin ko kaya mga gamit niyo ng sobrang mura gusto niyo?

the thing with using pedal preamps is that they have no balanced XLR output.  if the TS wants a simle pedal preamp, he shouldn't have mentioned the DI part.  :-)

@jeromemusika, thanks po ng madami sa suggestions!

@all, pasensya kung nabigyan ko pa kayo ng sakit sa ulo. hehe... My main purpose for asking is mainly to see other alternatives to the Sansamp Para Driver DI. I just wanted to know if meron pang ibang alternatives for the main reason of being unique. 1st choice ko na talaga is Sansamp Para Driver DI. My 2nd choice would be to get a Hartke vxl (which is masyado na malaki para sa akin). 3rd choice would be yung Behringer GI100 (kaso i'm skeptical about the speaker/amp simulator nya). Then last resort ko is to go separate ways and get good preamp and a cheap DI box (which is masmasyadong magte-takeup ng space).

Then yung purpose ko for getting a Pre-amp/DI box pedal combo w/ balanced out is for the ability to plug-in to any soundsytem, may it be an amp, pc, speaker or mixer. Then, there's the portability issue kasi medyo madami akong gamit na bitbit during gigs.


Thanks again sa mga opinions mga sirs! i'm considering all of them. :)
