U5 Pure Class A Mono Instrument DI-Preamplifier Silver. On the gig, a good quality DI is good to have. In the studio, a great one is essential, and here it is.

They have found their way into the world's leading musicians rigs and recording sessions and been featured on thousands of the best selling (and sounding) albums and live performances.
