    Hello goodfellas,
    I am the proud owner of a all tube trace Elliot v4, and I see that it has a DI xlr output. Has somebody experienced with recording using the DI from this head?. Is the signal going through the preamp tubes and then to the DI output?

    if i were you, i'd ask in the trace threads. i'm guessing this isn't a super common issue.

    I have used mine for Demo's and live. I think it sounds nice. It has a pre/post eq switch as well. My advice would be regardless of whether it goes through tubes or not, if you like the sound use it if you don't, don't.

    However, you might be able to find info easier if you search for V-Type or V-Type preamp as that is what the DI is coming from on all those amps.
