Sonic Nuance has introduced the TDI Mk2, a direct box that combines tuner and DI functions. The new pedal retains the signal path from the Mk1 version but has a more accurate and stable tuning section, the company says.
At the heart of the TDI is a passive Jensen JT-DBE transformer. The chromatic tuner is phantom powered and fully operational even with a true lift between the XLR’s pin 1 and ground. Sonic Nuance says the frequency response of the pedal is 20Hz to 20kHz, allowing the tuner to respond to a low B string with ease. A footswitch allows for mute functionality.
The Sonic Nuance is hand assembled, designed and tested in the USA. It’s available now with a MSRP of $350 and a special introductory price of $330.
