I am not a guitar player. However, I understand its complexity. I understand that while many people can get a guitar to sound good, few can get it perfect and fewer can get it perfect on record. That’s why, as a recording engineer DI Boxes and Re-amps are essential.
I have been wanting to do a piece on these two pieces of gear for a while. As it happened, I got hooked up with DIY Recording Equipment (DIYRE) out of Philadelphia in the States. They graciously offered to send me a Direct Input Box kit and a Re-amp kit for me to put together, test, and teach!
First, a little about each of the kits, the process of building them, the why & how to use them, with a bit about the quality at the end.
DIYRE sells itself as “Professional DIY Recording Equipment” and it definitely felt that was what I had received right from the beginning.
Upon opening the kits, the first thing that stood out was the professionalism. It showed through in many ways: the perfectly crafted cardboard boxes, the laser cut component housings, the black & white circuit boards…
I was excited to get to work building the gear and getting to the studio to test them out!
