"I believe in getting the source 'right' before it gets to me. Once that is achieved I can then look at the signal path. By far the best off the shelf DIs I've tried are the Radial JDI and J48. Too my ears, they bring out the instrument's true character."
"Radial JDIs and J48s have been on my rider's input list without exception for a few years now... that is until I tried the PZ-DI. On piezo style pickups the PZ-DI takes away that brashness and supplies a more natural, rounded high end, and produces a tighter sounding low, low-mid region too. I'll still have the other two on the spec but the PZ-DIs are firmly stamped on too."
