The Hazelrigg Industries VDI is a single channel, all-triode vacuum tube DI (direct box) for recording electric or electronic instruments. The input is designed to provide the proper load impedance for all instruments that have a ¼-inch phone jack output. Tube circuitry provides the very high impedance necessary to capture all the details of these instruments.
The outputs of the VDI are mic level (150 ohm source impedance at a nominal -30dBV).
The VDI is designed to operate into a high-quality microphone preamplifier like our VT-1 and VT-2 Vacuum Tube Microphone Preamplifiers
The operation is very simple: plug the instrument into the ¼-inch front panel jack and take the output from the XLR connector. A second ¼-inch provides an output to feed a guitar amplifier when necessary. A ground-lift switch helps eliminate ground loop buzz.
“The VDI all-tube DI is reassuringly built and very robust sounding.” – Wes “Wesonator” Maebe, Producer/Engineer (Sting, Chaka Khan, UB40 (ft. Ali Campbell & Astro), Specimen, Suzi Quattro, New Model Army, Carly Simon)
“The Hazelrigg Industries VDI has been my go to DI since I first played my bass through it. It goes with me to every session and it’s ALWAYS welcome. The tone just makes everything cozy, comfortable and relaxed. I LOVE IT!”.” – Derek Jones, Bass, Cirque Du Soleil: Ka
