REDDi on acoustic direct.

Hi all, wondering if anyone has feedback on using the awesome REDDi on acoustic guitar, direct?

I do a lot of mobile recording (live shows) and often struggle with the acoustic recorded through a normal direct box and good pre. Thin and unmusical. Doing a singer songwriter live album tmw night.

Love the REDDi on bass btw.

Thanks for any help.

Definitely fattens things up. The DI sounds I get I find is related much more to the quality of the pickup in the instrument than the DI itself.

I generally steer to my old trusty Demeter tube DI for acoustic guitar as the transient response is a bit faster and the sound slightly more transparent. The REDDI is my go-to for bass, though.. a great and versatile DI.

In the end, the question is really more of- what kind of sound are you looking for?

Thanks Ben, I appreciate the response. Will have to judge the sound once at the gig, but want it to be nice and full. Not sure what kind of acoustic the client will be using yet. Thanks again, much REDDi love here on bass too!

That DI is the best sounding I have ever heard for an acoustic.
