Bo Hansen DI Challenge
« on: January 27, 2020, 07:14:16 PM »
I posted this over in the Bo Hansen thread in "The Lab" subforum, but I don't know if anyone is seeing it there. I figured this would be an appropriate place also. User Whoops asked me to do this, so I had some time last night and I did it.

This is my Avalon Jacques Stotzem Signature Model guitar played through 4 different Bo Hansen DI's, with 4 different transformer flavors, and one wildcard DI. They are simply labeled 1-5. There is no compression or processing of any kind. I just edited the clips to clean up the front and back, and exported and normalized.

Signal path is Guitar>DI>SSL 9000 500 Series Preamp>Tascam DA-3000

It has a Fishman pickup system in it, and this might be the first time I have ever used it. I always just play it as an acoustic, so I didn't fool around with the settings too much.

DM me here after you've listened and want to know which was which.

Lemme look.

 And while I'm looking, I haven't looked at this thread in months. Did some Mod delete a bunch of posts from here?

 That was the passive DI with the Lundahl LL1530.

4 of the 5 samples were done with active Bo Hansen's with different transformers, and there was a 5th passive wildcard.

Not sure if that info was posted on the Soundcloud page.

That’s two different guys, Bo Hansén is a technician in Gothenburg and the one who came up with this famous (at least here) DI-box. Bo Hansson was a composer and organ player from Stockholm who in 1969/70 wrote music inspired by the Lord of the Rings books.
Hmm... in which direction do the electrons actually go?

Funny (or not), notice the accent mark over the e in Bo Hansén's name...  Recently while trying to ship a package to Sweden using USPS website, it kept rejecting the package address with no explanation why... on my third try I manually typed over the  é and replaced it with an unaccented  e.... Then the address was accepted... cut and paste is accurate, but apparently too accurate for USPS.  ::)
