    Hey all,

    I'm looking for a 2 channel bass DI to make switching back and forth from acoustic to electric bass a bit more smooth, for me AND the sound person.
    Does anyone have a fave? I hear EBS has a good one, but it's rather expensive..

    Thanks, those are both great units. The VT seems cool, but does more than I would need (amp modeling). I think something with just a bit of tone shaping would be good.
    I really appreciate the input. I play lots but know nothing about gear! :rolleyes:

    Are you looking for two different EQ's or just the ability to leave both plugged in and switch with the press of a button?

    Well, the more I think about it the more I realize I should have two different EQ's. might have to go with the EBS.
  7. Radial Tonebone does that but the EBS is good too, I expect.

    What about just a 2 channel bass switcher DI, no EQ function. Mute switch would be great.

    The only ones I know of are surprisingly expensive. The less-expensive route is to get an A/B switch box and a separate DI box.

    Find a used Rane AP13. It will do electric, acoustic, take mice, has graphic EQ, hi pass filter to kill subsonics etc. Love it and love mine.
