    Recently I was filling in for a church. I was told not to bring an amp, that I would run a DI and use IEMs.

    Well, long story short, I ran straight into a countryman box from my '62 reissue fender jazz and was completely unhappy with my tone. I didn't have my usual preamp with me (an aguilar db924), but randomly I had a pocket pod.

    I would say that I was able to dial in a usable tone, but it really brought it to my attention how usable something like that designed for bass would be.

    Preferably it would be in a more rugged enclosure than the pocket pod, have an DI out. A footswitch engage would be awesome too.

    Basically, what I'm thinking here is a sansamp BDDI killer.

    I should mention that the sound guy I was dealing with was the worst sound guy ever.

    Great idea. I'd definitely buy one, especially if the amp simulation could be turned off.
  4. There was some discussion about this toward the end of this thread.

    I'm going to reiterate my belief that that a small box with; a M9 style interface to choose amp models and settings, a separate cab model knob (multi-position switch with no cab option), a XLR balanced out (with ground lift and separate volume out, or DB pad), a bypass switch, and a beer cozy would be the coolest DI box ever.

    So long as it sounded good and was sturdy enough for proper abuse.

    (Beer cozy optional)
