    Just finished watching yesterday's session and like the suggestion that was made for future session on this topic. In particular the use of DI boxes such as the LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI when running through a PA such as the Bose S-1 Pro.

    DI boxes seem to be popular (or is it just hype?) and I'm wondering if this might be a good future rabbit hole for GAS after acquiring all the overdrive pedals one could possibly ever use?

    My Seagull S6 (the one I had in Memphis on the rooftop) sounds much better through the DI than mic'd so I don't think it's hype. I have the Fishman Aura Spectrum but almost bought the Baggs. It'd probably be a good topic.

    Great topic, I'm currently trying to get a 12 string acoustic piece recorded, and although I can get a somewhat satisfactory sound with my cheap condenser mic's, I'd definitely like to learn about DI boxes and pretty much anything else that might bring me closer to the way real guitarists sound on real albums lol.
