ACME audio Motown D.I. WB-3 short review and demo

I have recently been lent the motown DI by Acme audio. I uses the same circuitry and components as the DI's used in the legendary motown studios. James Jameson being a famous bass player having played on many of those motown recordings would have plugged his bass into the unit at the time. Although he used a Ampeg B15 amp, most recordings were done via the DI unit.

It's a great and cool looking unit and really well built. You can either plug you guitar direct into the unit, or plug in from you speaker output. There isn't a huge difference in sound for that reason, In the video I conclude that for the cost of the unit, I wouldn't buy one over my standard music interface or DI unit for a live show. If you like boutique equipment, it's definitely worth while considering this unit.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments box below.
