    I'm in the markert for a tube DI, small enough to fit on my pedalboard. I have heard good things about both the Aguilar DB900 and the Ampeg SVTDI. I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions.

    thanks

    Small is a relative term.

    Both of these DI's are kinda hefty, with a footprint a little bit larger than a Crybaby.

    I haven't gotten to play with either of them, but liek you, I've heard greta reviews on both. If you can find a local dealer, test them Otherwise, I would think you'd be happy with either one.

    I'd check out the PreSonus TubePre. It's a lot cheaper, smaller, and sounds awesome.
