This is one tool that should be in every acoustic player's rig! The EQ controls are fantastic, and I was able to dial in great tone on 3 vastly different guitars very quickly. The tuneable low mid and hi mid bands are extremely useful for isolating and removing unwanted boxy or muddy mid-range frequencies. The notch filter and phase inverter are also very effective in reducing feedback and for fine tuning. But this is only the beginning! The venue also has a tuner, a boost switch, an effects loop, and a full isolation DI so it is super quiet. Take full control of your acoustic performance with this all-in-one masterpiece!
The Venue DI is an acoustic preamp that combines a transformer-coupled DI output for maximum isolation, an EQ specifically tuned for acoustic instruments, a volume boost footswitch to complement your playing styles, and an easy to read chromatic tuner with a mute/tune footswitch. Combining the features from 3 stompboxes into 1, the Venue DI brings a new level of fidelity and usefulness to performing acoustic musicians. Assembled in the USA with 100% quality control testing.
