Alctron DI2600N Passive Re-Amping DI Box for Guitar Bass
I have just recently started reamping, initially with a DI box, with mixed results... some good, some bad. Realising the benefits, I decided I needed to get a proper reamp box. I did my research and decided for the (*)adial JCR, which is not the cheapest of them all, so dropping $260+ on a device that might or might not work for me was something I did not want to do... as a result the PRORMP seemed like the best option. When I proceeded to check out and I came across the Alctron DI2600N, at almos 1/3 the price of the JCR, on which this is clearly based on... so decided to go for the Alcron instead of the ($)adial product.... what can I say... it's a reamp box alright, its quiet, built like a tank, noise free... consistent result.. Is it as good as the product its based on? well, I don't know... as I don't have one to compare it against... but what I can tell you is this: I've recorded my guitar and FX direct to board (with a Torpedo CAB M)… and also the same raw guitar and reamped through the same FX chain and presets… and there's absolutely no difference to my ears. If there's any tone loss... well, is completely imperceptible . and when weighted against the cost saving benefits... the Alcron really is a keeper. Save your money and don't be a brand snub.
