Port Coquitlam, British Columbia (June 2, 2005)–Those erstwhile proponents of the Southern California vibe, The Eagles, are back on tour, spreading peaceful, easy feelings across the land. Helping make that happen onstage every night are a slew of Radial JDI direct boxes, used as a key component in their sound.
Technical equipment guru Bill Lanham chose Radial DIs reportedly because of “their natural sound, simplicity and their ability to withstand abuse on the road,” according to the company.
Purchased through Apex Audio in Southern California, the band purchased 16 JDI direct boxes. The Radial JDI is primarily aimed for use with guitars, keyboards and bass, largely due to its 10Hz to 40kHz linear response; the company reports that the Dis can handle “extreme” transients before saturation and virtually zero phase distortion, resulting in “a more natural sound that is both easier to mix and sounds much better, especially when used with personal monitoring.”
