The essence of Eden tone in a handy little direct box.

The WTDI World Tour Direct Box/Bass Preamp from Eden is something fans have been requesting for a while, and now Eden delivers! Much more than a direct box, the WTDI is like bringing a little Eden preamp to every stage and studio gig!

Keep one handy in your gig bag, case, or on your pedalboard and use it to Eden-ize that junk box of an amp they gave you for backline at the gig by going direct into the power amp section. Or use it to add a 2nd, 3rd, or solo/boost channel to your current rig. The WTDI also works extremely well with acoustic guitars/basses.

The rugged WTDI Direct Box/Bass Preamp is true bypass with both 1/4" and XLR (with ground lift) outputs. Besides 3 bands of tone control with bass boost and mid-shift functions, volume, and gain controls, Eden added variable compression and their legendary Enhance control.

All this comes in a compact box complete with universal power supply. Also runs on most 12-18 volt-capable pedalboards and power bricks.

Comments about Eden WTDI World Tour Direct Box and Bass Preamp:

My biggest complaint about this Eden box is that it doesn't have a peak-LED. That can be a problem if you're doing recordings. You may hear something peaking but you won't know if it's the Eden box, the recorder, the mixer, your FX or whatever you're plugging into. I was a little bothered that Eden, one of the best bass-amp companies in the world, forgot to put a little peak-LED on thier "World Tour" DI box.

Other than that, this DI box sounds VERY WARM for solid-state gear. You would never know it didn't have a pre-amp tube inside of it. I'm more of a Latin-rock player so I crave that warm tone with solid-state reliability/portability.

For sure, this Eden box sounds warmer than the SansAmp Tech 21 RBI rack.

The Eden "Enhance" feature does the SAME EXACT thing that the Markbass VPF does (variable pre-shape filter.) It basically turns up the lows and highs. To my ears, it muffles the mids quite a bit. So I don't use it much.

I like a bit of "twang" in my sound. So on this Eden box, I have to turn the mid up high. The mid-shift is fun to experiment with.

The bass boost is a little overwhelming. I have to turn the bass knob to the half-way point when I turn on the boost.

I'm not a big slap player so I don't use the compressor much.

In 20 years of playing music, the only bass amps I've eer owned were Fender, SWR, GK and Markbass. I've read/heard lots of good things about Eden but have never gotten around to purchasing. Plus, I heard somewhere that Eden and SWR were started by the same guy.

I will say that I am VERY impressed with the Eden tone. I now have my eyes & ears on the Eden Navigator amp head. . . . . .
