Using preamps and direct boxes with guitar.
The Para Acoustic DI is a main part of my live setup.
Although designed for acoustic guitars, we have learned of many musicians using them with mandolins, violins, double basses and a whole host of ethnic stringed acoustic instruments fitted with transducers. So, it appears as if it’s usefulness is only limited by the users imagination!

BBE Sound is a premier audio technology company dedicated to improving the quality of amplified sound for all people, from everyday consumers to music and sound professionals. BBE High Definition Sound technologies are found throughout the audio entertainment production spectrum; from the stage and studio, where world-renowned musicians insist upon using BBE professional audio processors, to consumer electronics manufacturers who implement BBE High Definition Sound technologies into their products so that they provide a more satisfying audio experience to their customers.
Headquartered in California, BBE Sound, Inc. has been pioneering audio improvement technologies for professional and consumer applications since 1985.
In the four years since BBE last offered its award-winning 386 acoustic preamp, BBE’s design and engineering teams studied the recording and sound reinforcement needs of serious acoustic players. The result is the Acoustimax, a foot-pedal-style (or “stompbox- style”) acoustic preamp which raises the bar for amplified acoustic instrument sound quality.

Andrew Barta incorporated Tech 21 and made his unique invention commercially available to players and studios around the world. His highly-acclaimed SansAmpTM pioneered Tube Amplifier Emulation in professional applications for recording direct and performing live, and created an entirely new category of signal processing.While there have since been many entries into this niche, SansAmp continues to maintain its reputation as the industry standard.

NEW - The L.R. Baggs FIVE.O ukulele system is small, light-weight, and best of all, specifically tuned to track the uke’s natural dynamics and its unmistakably unique voice.
I'm currently using the Para Acoustic D.I. with my ukuleles.
We started this in a loft in downtown Los Angeles, California, with a hope and a dream, and no business sense whatsoever. The first L.R. Baggs product was our LB6 Series Pickup. We would like to thank Leo Kottke for his early support. Stores would call us and say, “Leo Kottke said he was using your pickup.” We could literally track his touring route as the stores would order in his wake. Early endorsers were Steven Sheehan of the Judds, James Taylor and Kathy Mattea. These endorsers gave us the encouragement and support that sustained us when we had more enthusiasm than business sense. They spread the word and gradually our business grew.
We've come a long way from those old "mom-and-pop days." Every year we have designed new and exciting products. We have endeavored to use our God given talents to offer the cutting edge in guitar amplification. We hope that we have created products that will encourage, motivate and inspire you, our customer. We would like to take this opportunity to say, "Thank You." We hope that we have been able to enhance your musical talents in some way and we very much appreciate all of you who have chosen L.R. Baggs.

(from Roland USA site) Rich, deep, stereo sound to go — introducing the AC-33, the world’s first AA battery-powered amp made specifically for acoustic guitar. Portable yet powerful, the AC-33 provides true stereo sound, Guitar and Mic/Line channels, custom-tailored effects, anti-feedback, and a Phrase Looper. But this amp was made to go places no amp has gone before. Thanks to its battery-power capability, the AC-33 lets you take your act anywhere — into the backwoods, onto the streets, or wherever your imagination leads you.
