The LaChapell audio 500 TDI is a 500 series valve DI box using the same TrueTube technology as the stunning 583S mic preamp.
The LaChapell Audio 500 TDI houses a 12DW7 tube to provide rich valve harmonics and incredible detail. Using a two knob architecture (Tube Drive and Level), this 500 Di box offers an extremely wide range of tones from clean to distorted. Its TrueTube technology ensures that the valve receives the proper operating voltage for optimum performance.
