The Radial Firefly Tube DI

I love tube direct boxes, especially on bass. From the old Simon System (very rare these days) to the Evil Twin (also rare), tube DIs can just make a bass roar like nothing else. Now Radial Engineering, who make what might be the industry standard passive DIs in the excellent sounding JDI, has introduced their Firefly tube DI, which offers a number of unique features (like variable pickup loading).

Here's a video that Sound on Sound magazine shot at AES that gives you a pretty good idea of what the Firefly is all about. I'm really anxious to try it out myself. Beware that you have to sit through 30 seconds of a Focusrite commercial before it gets down to business.
