    Sweet sounding DI can't go wrong with this one and the price is too good to pass up.

    Is this as good in front of an amp to color the sound as it is as a DI?

    I think most players and studios use the Avalon primarily to enhance the sound. For me, the DI function was a bonus.

    Oh yes. With a passive Fender the first three tone positions are like Hit Bass Sound 1, Hit Bass Sound 2, Hit Bass Sound 3... I use the hi cut as well. Sit in the mix or build a mix around it... your choice.

    Yep. I’m a fan... also digging the classy black cosmetics... makes my silver U5 look gaudy ;-)

    Amazing DI... and the black anniversary models don’t come up used very often
    Very fair price
