Red Box 5 Speaker Simulator description:

The Hughes and Kettner Red Box 5 Speaker Simulator is the ultimate tool for capturing the sound of guitar amps, without using microphones. The Red Box series has been around since the late 80's is a is a great solution for recording, when micing an amp just isn't practical.    

The Red Box is essentially a DI box that goes between your amp head and speaker cab, and allows for a direct out to a mixing desk. This eliminates cross talk that can occur with other instruments and the need of experimenting with different mic placements. For recording it allows you to get some great sounding guitar tracks. With it you can double track a miced up speaker cabinet and Red box, or the pure Red Box signal is run through microphone and/or room emulating plug ins. This allows for the perfect mix or direct attack and ambience.

When it comes to controls, there is a ground lift switch and a pad switch to adjust input gain. There are also three sliding switches that provide some unusual but subtle sound shaping features. These can really help you get the sound of your favourite cab, or just EQ'ing for your environment.

The Red Box is can be powered by either Phantom power, a 9V battery or an optional 9V power supply. This tiny device can fit in the palm of your hand and comes with its own velvet carrying pouch.

Review:
Well you might be able to buy cheaper DI boxes but you won't buy a better one.

You can pad the input to your desk by -26db and the unit has a number of selectors that noticeably alter your tone so you can quickly and easily dial in what you want by changing the switches.

Metal construction so I would imagine it will be very robust.

Have tried on my 100W 1963 JCM 800, an Orange Tiny amp and a AVT 150 and get great results with all

Works equally well from battery or phantom power.

This is a must have for anyone with a valve amp or an amp that provides a hot signal to get that glorious tone to the desk and through the PA
