Behringer BDI21 overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer V-Tone Bass BDI21 is a versatile stomp box designed to enhance performance with bass guitar in both live and studio settings. With an effective EQ, Tube/Microphone Emulation, and a Ground Lift Switch to combat unwanted hum, the BDI21 offers greater control over a range of sounds - from vintage to funk to modern overdrive - and all points between.

Tube/Microphone Emulation
Authentic tube/microphone modeling circuitry effectively emulates a bass miked through a tube preamp, capable of dialing up a range of sounds - from vintage to funk to modern overdrive - and all points between.
Two Band EQ With Presence Control
The BDI21's EQ controls allow for greater flexibility of tone, while Presence can be adjusted to boost the upper harmonics for a smoother high-end and a more aggressive attack.
Bassists can add tube overdrive to get that vintage crunch.
Direct Injection Output
A dual Direct Injection (DI) mode is controlled by a durable footswitch, enabling the player to alternate between tube/microphone emulation and standard DI in bypass mode.
Super-High Impedance
The input and outputs are wired to retain maximum signal integrity and dynamics.
Ground Lift Switch
This switch helps to combat typical ground loop problems, such as 50/60 kHz hum.
Other Uses
The BDI21, while designed with the bass guitar in mind, is a versatile component that can be used with other instruments to create new sounds. It can also be connected directly to the microphone input or auxiliary send/return of a mixing console for live or studio applications respectively.

    Behringer BDI21 reviews

    V-Tone Bass BDI21 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I needed it to do I plug my bass (fender Jazz) directly into the mixer so I needed something to amplify and model the tone, exactly as this does. I love the sound (which I was able to preview on Behringer's corporate site, and even copied one of the settings there for mine). The only reason I gave 4 instead of five stars is that it can get slgithly noisy if you turn it up too much, as I like to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexible tone Nice distortion when used lightly. Exactly the type I had been looking for. Not saying it's bad if used heavily, I just prefer a little. I also needed a DI that was before all my tone controls and effects. This unit is warmer/smoother sounding that Behringers BOD400 Bass Overdrive Good price, good tone. I like it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT VALUE !!! I use this box to run my passive bass direct to the PA using the XLR out along with a 1/4 cable into a small on stage amp as a monitor. It provides great tone control. I use the SVT sample in a modern worship rock setting. Sounds as good as similar units priced much higher. The only reason I gave 4 stars is the plastic construction. This is my second one of these. I gave the first one to my son and it's still going strong after a couple years of regular use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Power - Better Sound I bought the BDI21 because my jazz bass with passive pickups did not have the signal strength needed for the DI sound systems I play through at two regular gigs. Informed by an article in Bass Player magazine, I started looking at pre-amps. The BDI21 has the same functions as some priced ten times higher. The signal shaping is not what I hear in the sound tracks on Behringer's web site, but it does make a difference and the signal is plenty strong, giving excellent results with the DI sound system. The plastic case is ok for me, I'm careful with my equipment. Just one hitch: unplugging the input is supposed to turn off the power, but in 8 hours use plus 6 days unplugged on the shelf the battery went dead. A malfunction? I also bought the Behringer 9V power supply; that should help. I'd like an opportunity to compare with the other more expensive preamps. For now its good. I'm glad I have it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tone boost I use this to boost the output from a Hofner Beatle bass into a pair of Kustom 50 watt mini pa cabinets each with two 5 inch speakers. The tone output from four 5 inch speakers is unbelievable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beringer V- Tone Bass BD121 Large power in a small box.Lots of different tones.You can slap, plucked.or picked. Whether you are using an adapter or a 9v battery, Awesome power.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much value! Build quality aside, this thing sounds great.� Don't mistreat it like you would a steel stompbox and you've got an amazing sounding pedal!
