    I will be uploading blind clips tonight in no particular order. At first all I will be asking is "which one do you like the most".

    I will be using a 1975 Fender Jazz with brand new SS Fatbeams to appease @Dave Hill;) plus he is supplying the strings as well as the room, recording and computer to pull this off. By tonight.

    I will for each track/clip give examples of both plectrum and finger techniques.

    As to whenever this might simmer down with votes on favorites. I will then move on to which one whoever might think is what. Now if anybody can guess correctly which ones are which, I do have a prize that I will send to the winner at my charge:hyper:. Hopefully if there is a winner, he or she will be living in conus.Ha.

    After that I will release the order of the DI's.

    This should be very fun.

    I also wanna thank TB for making this possible and everybody here for their involvement and interests.

    The red one on the left is the REDDI, the black one next to it is the P15, the green one is the JDI, and the one on the far right is the Noble.

    I'll PM my address to you for my prize!

    Louder clips tend to sound to normalize the levels to level the playing field.

    Thanks for doing this. I have not had the pleasure of using a P15. But I've separately compared the Reddi to Jule Monique and the Jule Monique to the Noble. There were clear and distinct differences both on gigs and in my little home studio but I'd doubt my ability to pick correctly in a blind taste test, all flavors of really good.

    My guess is the big winner is the JDI, super inexpensive in comparison and sounds really good.

    I would add the BAE 1073DMP to the list: 1073DMP


    See what he looks for in a pre/DI:

    Playing a passage gives you a feel for how the unit sounds. It's also important to push the device to its limits and see how it reacts, where the limitations are. Limitations exist in all devices and it isn't a bad thing to know where they reside.

    I would like to hear single low note hit hard. Present the onset of the note and the decay. Listen for harmonics. Then play repeated fast low notes, really digging in. Low notes tax the power supply, it takes more energy to reproduce them cleanly. That helps determine how much the the power supply is sagging, or if the voltage dips too much and the sound farts out.

    A chord helps you determine how different frequencies blend together. Smearing or muddyness can indicate distortion in the output transformer.

    The bass control is +18 db, cornered at 80hz. The treble is + 20 db, cornered at 3.5khz. The low cut is - 6 db/ octave below 150hz. Boosting bass and treble gives a mid notch around 700hz. Flat is with both bass and treble all the way ccw.
    Just for reference from the manual.
    My settings vary depending on what I'm sending the signal to. Hard to get a bad tone out of it so far.

    Re: Noble... If you get the chance you might also want to try the low cut and increase the bass to about 1 o'clock or so. Seems to bring out the low mids. And TIA for doing this! Also, unity gain is around 11 - 12 'oclock on the volume knob.

    Really depends, of course, but gain/volume at 11:00 and treble/bass at 09:00 is "neutral" to me.
