Powerful 5-Band EQ Tailors Your Tone

Ultra-Transparent Signal Path Preserves Pickup Detail
The Para DI's discrete, Class A FET input and ultrahigh input impedance provide an crystal-clear signal path that captures every nuance of your acoustic pickup's tone. Its adjustable gain control allows you to match levels for any pickup, active or passive and achieve up to +24dB of gain. The Para DI transmits your signal to the mixing board via balanced XLR and 1/4" outputs for pristine, studio-quality sound.
Essential Features for Live Performance
In addition to powerful tone shaping and an ultra-transparent signal path, the Para DI includes essential features for live performance. Its phase inversion switch helps eliminate feedback, while an effects loop allows you to easily integrate pedals. A low cut filter removes excess bass for a tight, controlled tone. With the Para DI, you have everything you need to amplify your acoustic guitar for an audience.
