The Direct Drive™ is a combination amp emulator and direct box that lets you perform live or record without a guitar amplifier. It features a Voicing Control with three amp simulation EQs starting with a traditional Radial JDX™ 4x12 tone; next - a beefy sounding Marshall™ Half-Stack for rock and metal; and finally - a clean FenderTwin™ tone for blues and country picking. A bright switch acts like the presence on your amp. Connect your guitar to your pedals, the pedals to the Direct Drive and the XLR output to the PA. Easy! You can even send a signal to your amp and tuner! Finally, a great sounding stage amp that won’t break your back!
