Eden WTDI

Recommended Posts

Has anybody ever used the Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Guitar DI Preamp? I have been looking at getting one for quite a while now but just needed to check if anyone has used one before and what experiences you have had..

I have one. I bought it at the bass show in March.
The input control is very sensitive. From what I can ascertain, it is a common thing.
The output is v loud, but it sounds amazingly cool.

How is the bypass? I've read somewhere that gain and master controls still work in bypass mode.

Have you compared it to a big Eden head? Some people claim it pretty much nails the tone, some say that it sounds really poor.
I've played WT-500 and I'm in love. I'd like to have a part of Eden sound in my rig

I just got hold of one of these (£94 new) and used it for the first time at a gig on Sunday. I didn't have time to look at it properly and, when I switched it on, it sounded 'kin terrible so I ditched it for the night.

Last night I got the pedal out at home and tried it as a DI into my audio interface. After a little time spent tweaking it, it sounded 'kin fantastic. The knobs are really sensitive so you don't have to move them very far to make a difference but, after a few minutes of adjusting things, my Wal sounded really rich and even and lost that overly transparent sound you often get when you plug into a audio interface. Think valves instead of transistors :) Happy bunny.

Yep, as I've mentioned on other threads, I use one every week to DI into the PA so I don't have to lug or risk inebriated idiots punters resting / spilling drinks on top of my amp.

As Bilbo says, it's sensitive & takes a little fine-tuning, but sounds ace once you've tweaked it to suit.

Also works very well with the Eden Glowplug pedal, which has a 12AX7 valve to 'warm up' the tone. ( @lozkerr has one of these too).

Recommended :)

I use one of these every weekend at least as a DI into my PA. 

Never had an issue with it, does exactly what I need in terms of giving me a tone I like.  

I'd thoroughly recommend.
