The end result is a sonic masterpiece. Plug in a bass and the Juice Box delivers a sound that is silky smooth; all the unpleasant edges on top are eliminated and the bottom end is tightened up beautifully. It made my ’70 Fender Precision sound almost like a vintage model and worked absolute wonders on my Rickenbacker 4001, a difficult-to-record instrument that delivers a notoriously flabby, weak direct signal. The effect on keys is similar if not as striking, and the added roundness is most welcome on organs and synth pads. And if you’re looking for that super-clean, in-your-face, direct Strat-sound, this is definitely the box to reach for: All of your picking transients will come through with extraordinary clarity.”
The Juice Box has typical DI amenities (1/4” I/O, XLR balanced output, grown lift), but includes a +/-20 dB gain switch with variable adjustment control. This [allows] the user to feed a tape deck directly with a very hot signal or step down to microphone level for a console microphone input, providing preamp-style flexibility. In the studio, the Juice Box took the harsh edge off a Yamaha digital piano with a signal gain perfectly matched to the unity spot on the console’s input level control.
…I like these flexible and unique studio tools. They work well, appear to be durably well-build, and ought to gain wide acceptance by crossing over home/professional studio and MI lines.”
Wow! The Juice Box is truly the Juiciest!
