Complete Control

Featuring dedicated Drive, Treble, Bass, Level and Presence dials, the Behringer BDI21 V-Tone provides you with versatile sound-shaping capabilities. Whether you're on stage or in the studio, you can create vintage tube tones for funky-slap, gonzo overdrive and everything in between. The BDI21 can be used as a recording output DI with tube emulation, or as a standard active DI box when operating in bypass mode. Additionally, the integrated ground lift switch allows you to eliminate typical ground loop hum problems.
