    I have been thinking about getting a countryman type 85. I finally ordered one today. I found a great deal on amazon.com for $89. Can't wait to plug it up. I know a lot of people like them, anyone care to share about theirs?
  2. Wow! Was that price for a new one?!?!

  3. My favorite for the past 15 years. Bulletproof, quiet and clean... exactly what a DI should be.

    The Countryman is the only DI i use on my bass. I never had any problems & it's rider friendly too.

    Great DI, whenever you have a chance try the Radial J48. You will be very pleasantly surprised.

    take care

    Don't forget that the Countryman is polarity inverting (pin 3 hot).

    I play it all. Whatever works for the gig. Q+
    I didnt know that.. Do you know why they do that.. The Alembic F1X also has an inverted Pin 3 hot.. and never knew why.

    I believe they both came out during a period in which Pin 3 hot was normal here, but other nations were switching to Pin 2 hot. The manufacturers elected to keep their products as they had always been.
