A Designs Audio REDDI All-Tube Direct Box v2

The same tone and sound from the REDDI - in a dual mono 2RU rack mount version
MFR# REDDI v2

Product Description

The number of A-Designs REDDIs in use on stages and studios all over the world is nothing short of staggering. Quite simply, there is no better sounding way to convert an instrument, or line level signal, to XLR.

 Designed with the help of top studio engineers and bass players, the A-Designs REDDI v2 has been widely praised by engineers and musicians all over the world as the best-sounding DI solution on the market today.

It is important to note that the REDDI-v2 is not a high-gain device! Its gain structure has been painstakingly engineered to avoid the slightest compromise in sound quality. Inspired by the glorious sound of the Ampeg B-15 tube bass amp, the REDDI-v2 6N1-P tube-driven amplifier feeds signal directly into a hefty custom output transformer by Cinemag – a key component to providing a harmonically rich tone. The REDDI-v2's extremely wide frequency range (20Hz to 60kHz) prevents in-band phase shift, resulting in outstanding detail and realism. Another major benefit of its wide bandwidth is the prevention of LF phase shift by maintaining a linear response extending below the audible bass range, insuring a full, natural sound.

The REDDI-v2's distinctive bright red steel chassis sports 2 front-panel Neutrik XLR/1/4” combo input jacks, 2 balanced XLR outputs, and 2 1/4” thru-puts, for sending signal to a bass amp – not only useful for live applications, but also for simultaneously recording direct and miked amp tracks in the studio.  A 0-16dB-Level control and a Red LED power indicator complete the front panel controls. The back panel contains a heavy-duty toggle switch for ground lift, along with the IEC power outlet.

The REDDI-v2 all-tube circuitry will enhance the character of any electrified instrument that runs through it -- not just bass -- but stereo keyboards, as well. Plug the pickup of an acoustic guitar through REDDI-v2 to add depth and fullness to its tone.  Capture and improve all the richness and life of an electric piano or analog synthesizer. Warm up sterile sounding digital keyboards or drum machines by strapping a REDDI-v2 across their outputs – for stereo!  The uses are endless.

I've been using the single channel Reddi DI for years. From the first time I heard one, I knew I had to add it to the studio. Not only is it amazing for bass, but I use it all the time on acoustic guitar DI, Wurly, Clav, and Moog synths. I really like the warmth and color it adds to a line level signal. When I found on A Designs was making a two channel rack mount version I jumped right on it. I pretty much dedicate the mono version to the bass, and use the stereo unit for all sorts of stuff. The price was right on point, it's been one of the biggest sonic improvements without breaking the bank.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
