Subject: Re: "Using the Peavey EDI to 'Mike' Your Amp"... has anybody here used this?

Hi guys,

CrossCutt wrote about the Peavy EDI... has anybody here got any experience
with this? Just picked up a little Champ and it seems like this might be
really helpful.

>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.
