A-Designs Audio REDDI Tube Direct Box
A-Designs Audio REDDI Tube Direct Box is an all tube analog DI that produces a sound and character unique to itself. Think of the Ampeg B15 era; that's this DI. It delivers thick, round, solid bass that fits perfectly in the mix. It's also great for guitars, synths, any instruments, and vocals.
The REDDI has a tube-based amplifier using the 6N1P output tube feeding an A Designs custom-wound output transformer which provides the circuit path for your guitar or bass giving you a sound that you can't get through any other device.
One of the key factors with any tube gear is transformers; both audio and power supply transformers. A Designs Audio custom-builds their own unique audio output transformer to produce the specific sound they're after. To keep the REDDI at its lowest noise level A Designs employs a special toroid transformer in the onboard power supply.
Used by bassists Reggie Hamilton and Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and producer/engineers Tony Shepperd, Ted Perlman, and Dylan Dresdow.
