Out. At least that’s what I assume you’re asking. I’m having to EQ before I get to the DI box
So from the DI are you going to a board or to the pa? I’m guessing either should have EQ controls. When I’ve used a DI I’ve gone to a mixing board then out to FOH. We use the board to cut or EQ anything needed from the guitar. My OMJM has no volume or tone control on it, just straight out from the piezo so I’m very dependent on a board for Amy EQ needed.
Spell out the signal path. Guitar-----> ?
What are you using for a DI now?
I’m not sure- whatever the house already has.
Then what they have sucks. Probably something cheap like Behringer or Rolls.
Get the Type 85. Send to the board and allows you to send to an amp. Do both.
So are you saying I should get an acoustic amp too?
No. Use your DR clone as a monitor for you and mic it. It'll sound huge.
I’m pretty sure I owe you some audio of Nate D playing.
I have a Baggs I-Beam in my D28. I use the Baggs Para DI. Had it for about 20 years now. Best $150 I ever spent.
You need to check and see what the house is using. In my case , I needed eq before the board. The D28 is way boomy without the Para DI. It's basically a 4 band parametric EQ. So I can just drop the lows without much affecting the mids.
When I ran straight into the board when I had the I-Beam installed, yes I had to cut the bass on the board, but the sound was just thin and lifeless.
Not so with the Para DI. Sound is great now.
Plus, with the any of the Baggs units, you'll have more control over your sound, no matter what venue. More gain too.
