Yes, this is probably the best option. The fact that it can either be used between amp and cab, or without amp (with line-level or instrument-level signal) makes it a very versatile device.I use a Palmer PDI-09 its a passive box and very quiet, I only use it for getting my amp to the board but can be used the way you are asking!
This is a direct box with no speaker sim... don't think this will help the matter.
This is actually very good advice, but considering that I sadly have played so many places with such lousy soundmen that either won't mic the amp, make me play the house amp or even worse, just hand me a DI to plug my pedalboard and use my amp as monitor.I know you said you wanted to avoid amps but a tube amp is really the other half of your instrument. An electric guitar may use a cable that looks like a keyboard patch cable, but it sends a completely different type of signal. I would heavily consider buying an inexpensive small tube amp before dumping coin into DI. I always play small gigs and I love my Blues Jr.
I make my living as a soundman, and that's three of the worst cardinal sins right there! who are these idiots and who's paying them to be soundmen?considering that I sadly have played so many places with such lousy soundmen that either won't mic the amp, make me play the house amp or even worse, just hand me a DI to plug my pedalboard and use my amp as monitor.
I should have not called them soundmen, now that I think about it, it's probably an insult to the fine people like yourself that know how to work properly with the band, these guys are just ridiculous, I mean what's the point of having a nice guitar amp as a house amp when it's gonna be used as a monitor only? these people give a new meaning to set-and-forget/plug-and-play approach.I make my living as a soundman, and that's three of the worst cardinal sins right there! who are these idiots and who's paying them to be soundmen?
The Palmer PDI-09 is not a rack unit; it's a stomp-box sized gizmo that can be used either between the amp and cab, or direct from a pedal-board.The problem with the Palmer is you have to bring your amp to the gig, and then a rack to hold the palmer.
Although he did not specify, my guess is the original poster is looking for an easier way out, meaning not have to bring your entire rig to a gig, maybe for lack of space on stage, or the pay being to low, etc, etc.
So just the pedal board, and a guitar, and straight to the board...
