[NAMM] A-designs presents the Reddi v2

A-Designs has presented the Reddi V2, a rack-mountable version of their Reddi all-tube DI unit.

A dual-mono-channel, 19-inch, 2U model, the Reddi V2 is said to bring the original Reddi's capacity to "enhance the character of any electrified instrument that runs through it" in a bright red steel chassis with 2 front-panel Neutrik XLR/1/4” combo input jacks, 2 balanced XLR outputs, and 2 1/4” thru-puts. Although said to be inspired by the Ampeg B-15 bass amp, it can of course be used with all sorts of instruments.
