Subject: "Using the Peavey EDI to 'Mike' Your Amp"

Here's a good article I just ran across, thought I'd post it to the list.

"Using the Peavey EDI to 'Mike' Your Amp"
Are you aware of the PEAVEY EDI (Equalized Direct Interface)? Don't feel bad
if you haven't.....even a lot of Peavey dealers do not realize what a neat
little item it is for the musician who is 'miking' their amp through the PA
System.
What is this EDI...you may ask?? It is little box which looks like many other
DI's (Direct Boxes, Direct Interfaces), however it is different in that it
goes between the amplifier output and the speaker. [Regular Direct Boxes
(DI's) are used to connect amps, etc. to the Sound Mixer, & are plugged
directly out of the instrument into the mixer, bypassing any amp & speaker
tonal qualities]. These units (EDI's) are also known under other brand names
as a 'Speaker Director, however the Peavey EDI is designed to work with most
guitar amps, where the player wants to amplify the sound coming from the amp
speaker.
NOTE: This method gives the warmth produced by the speaker, with the same
results as miking your amp!....compared with taking a direct line out of the
back of your amp chassis which usually ends up very harsh sounding.
ADVANTAGES:
COST: App. $80.00 CAD ~ $59.00 USD, versus $100 to $250 for a good mic &
stand. NO BLEEDING: Since the EDI takes a direct signal, there is no open mic
picking up other sounds. Although most of its application is for live
performance, this can be great in the studio as well.
CONVENIENCE: Since the EDI mounts in the back of your amp, you simply plug in
the Lo Z mic cord to connect it to your PA mixer. No extra mic stand to
clutter up the stage, etc.
VERSATILITY: The EDI comes with a 'Timbre' adjustment, (a small internal pot
tuned with a small slot screwdriver), to adjust the response to match you
particular amp. It comes preset for most Peavey amps, however one may want to
experiment to optimize the sound for your particular amp.
USAGE:
The EDI comes with two 1/4" jacks ("From Amp - To Speaker), plus an XLR Lo Z
mic jack. At present** the EDI does not have any mounting bracket, so some
players simply let it sit loose in the back of their amp. I don't like to take
a chance on it damaging the speaker, etc. in transit, so I attach an aluminum
strip to the back plate with two holes for mounting screws, & mount it on the
inside (side wall) of the amp. NOTE: Mount it on the opposite side away from
the power transformer.
SUMMARY:
The Peavey EDI is one of the best kept secrets if you have the need to mic
your amp. contact your local Peavey Dealer.Remember, insist on the EDI....Not
just another Direct Box, as there is a vast difference.
