Small guitar amp with DI

Recommended Posts

So I play guitar in a acoustic duo.
Recently been thinking about using electric guitar for a few numbers.
Doesn't need to be loud, as I would like to DI from it into our PA.
I know I could mic it, but wanted to see what small amps have a DI?
Any recommendations? Or any advice?
Thanks in advance

A secondhand [color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Tech 21 Trademark 10 might do nicely. [/size][/font][/color]

The Tech 21 doesn't have a DI though does it?
Rhys, I played through my dads Roland cube, and that sounded great. Would be ideal, but I'd prefer not to mic

I think it does. It's on the underside of the chassis.

They can go for under £100, as well.

Why not just use a multi effects type thing with an amp sim on it like the Zoom G3 or Vox Tonelab. Just go straight into the PA. Easier to lug around too.

Hughes & Kettner Tubemeisters have "redbox" DI output, which also simulates the speaker..... sounds great! Also has built-in attenuator for quiet stage volume.... but unless you want to drive a cab onstage, a decent multi-FX / modeller should do the same job nicely, at lower cost + less gear-lugging.

Here's a thought. It's a bit different, but...

[url="http://www.dvmark.it/?/products/59/dv_little_jazz"]http://www.dvmark.it/?/products/59/dv_little_jazz[/url]

Made by the people who produce Markbass, and about the same size as a MicroMark. Plenty loud enough on it's own, but with a balanced line out just in case...

I use a tubemiester 18 in my dual rig and I'm nothing but impressed. Three channels, built in hotplate and redbox. Great for rehearsing, recording and gigging. Even sounds good with bass!

Blackstar and Hughes and Kettner amps have a DI or line out, as does the Fender Super Champ.

H&K Red Box equipped amps are brilliant. I have a Tube 50 combo with one fitted. There is very little difference IMO between the DI output and the sound of the speaker mic'd up with an SM57.
