Brings the exact character of the original 1960’s Motown DI box., Acme Audio Motown DI WB-3

"I had an opportunity to record a throwback Motown-style band, and we grabbed all of our DIs (we have quite a few), plus a couple of preamps that had instrument inputs just to be thorough. The best of the bunch didn't come remotely close to producing the unmistakably vintage and "Motown-y" sound that we were looking for. You can add the WB-3 to the list of gear that has "it.""
