With a very effective EQ, rugged construction, and features like the body contour control that will help you manage the most harrowing feedback and garbage-PA situations, the compact Acouswitch IQ DI a powerful, performance tool.

If you play enough gigs with an acoustic guitar—even if it’s just a part of your set—it won’t take long to understand the merits of a DI. Even a very basic one can be a bit like having your own little sound engineer in a box. A good one gives you the means to handle the excruciating variables of playing a coffeehouse one night and a rock box the next, and optimize the sound of your instrument for either situation.

The German-built Acouswitch IQ DI from Ruppert Musical Instruments falls into the very good category. It’s built as solid as an old Mercedes, has a very effective EQ, and boasts features like the body contour control that will help you manage the most harrowing feedback and garbage-PA situations. But it can be a lot more than a tool for acoustic-crisis management. It’s built to open up performance possibilities too. This ability to expand your acoustic sound palate and help you avert disaster makes the Acouswitch IQ DI a pretty powerful tool.
