Yep, I'm happy as s**t from a discovery I made at a gig on Friday night. The DI on my GK 1001-RBII sounded like garbage, probably from me dropping it-oops. I've never had a problem with it before, but regardless-I needed an acceptable DI immediately. I already had my Tone Hammer in the effects loop for eq and overdrive, so I figured to see if that DI would be quieter and diagnose the problem. Sure enough, the Aguilar's DI was totally silent...problem solved. I went the rest of Friday and all of last night WITHOUT AN AMP OR CAB. I have in-ear monitors, so my rig now fits in a duffle bag!! Plus, the Hammer's eq sounds sooo good and undistored (mids are fantastic). I did add a bit of overdrive (the AGS) and it's one of the best tones I've ever had, and certainly the simplest setup. I just need to get a backup DI to what was my backup DI, and I'm set! Booyah!!
