      If anyone out there could make a recommendation on the following it would be greatly appreciated.

      I am a guitarist who knows almost nothing about rack gear, but having recently fallen in deep deep love with an eclipse unit, I recently bought one (it's not here yet, though). My question:

      In order to run a guitar into the eclipse, is it recommended to do so through a DI box? I thought I read in the manual that plugging an unbalanced guitar cable like you would in any guitar – pedals – amp setup will result in a 6db loss and not the optimal signal.

      So I guess the question is should I go guitar – unbalanced 1/4 cable – di box – xlr into the back of the eclipse?

      If so, any recommendations on what DI box to purchase?

      Thanks in advance.

      do you not have an amp?

      I do have an amp, a small Class A tube amp with no effects loop. My concern is in keeping the tone as pristine as possible. Because I will have to run the Eclipse essentially as a stompbox, in front of the amp, I want to insure that I don't lose any signal at all.

       Check out the Suhr MiniMix.  Run your Eclipse parallel with your guitar, in front of the amp.  You could have the Eclipse set to 100% wet and control the amount of effect with an expression pedal.
