Direct Box Question - Nashville Pickup

Hello to all...been a while since I've posted anything here!


Do any of you have insight/experience with the smaller Radial DI boxes (J48, StageBug, etc)??  I currently have the PZ-Pre, and while awesome, I'm considering a smaller footprint given I play more lap/Tele than dobro these days and could use the pedalboard space.


Obviously I'd lose the mute switch and eq capabilities, but I'm really curious if the simpler DI could still fit the bill as far as boosting the signal effectively.  If so, J-48 or Stage Bug (similar but for piezo pickups with high-pass filter and 180 polarity switch)?


Thoughts? Experience?


Thanks in advance for any feedback!
