I use it as a DI box for acoustic equipped with K&K Pure Mini pickup. Compared to the K&K's own Pure Preamp, it has more brilliant high end, cleaner sound and many more options (ground lift, jack and XLR ins and outs, phantom power, can be used with mic), and much cheaper too! It's quiet and fun to use on stage. It needs no or very little EQ-ing on the mixer. Amazing!
