Lightning Boy Audio Announces the DiVision Tube Direct Box
Lightning Boy Audio has introduced the DiVision, a limited edition vacuum tube direct box featuring a 6DS4 nuvistor vacuum tube running at 230V. The company says using the minuscule tube lets you get a big tube tone and headroom in a little box. The entire unit weighs just under one pound.
The DiVision runs on a standard 9V pedal adapter and internally boosts the power for more headroom. It can dish out up to 11dB of clean boost and has a “Vision” knob that controls an active shelving EQ. It controls the tube to produce a treble boost of up to 6dB shouldered at 10kHz. Lightning Boy says when the Vision control is turned down that presents a flat response from 10Hz-22kHz with 0.2% THD+N.
The Lightning Boy Audio DiVision will be limited to 68 units. It’s available direct for $329.
