Be Prepared

Just listen to teacher
I know it sounds sordid but you’ll be rewarded
When at last I am given my dues!
And in justice deliciously squared
Be prepared!

WTDI Preamp/DI

WTDI Preamp/DI

I recently played a show with a hired backline. Even though I specifically reserved my favored Eden gear, what arrived at the venue was an Ampeg SVT-4PRO head and a SVT-410HE cab. The SVT-4PRO is an excellent head, and I owned one for many years. However, for me, there is something in the upper mids which is a bit of a pet peeve and I could never adequately EQ it out. Luckily, I brought my Eden WTDI with me in case this happened. I put the WTDI between my bass and the amp, viola! My Eden tone was back, the Ampeg’s upper mids weirdness was gone and things were back to normal. This is not the first time the WTDI has bailed me out. I always take it with me to rehearsal spaces or studios. I’ve been using Eden for the last 15+ years and it is such a big part of my sound that I cannot imagine going without, especially since I can throw the WTDI in a gig bag.

While we’re discussing things you should never be without… another excellent bit of kit which I always have with me is the Stewart MacDonald Guitar Tech Screwdriver set. This is the most well thought out, and well built, set I have seen.
