Forget what Tim mentioned, you just would wasted money! If the
sound is ok, than it is ok! You can not measure how a guitar does sound.
Usually all direct inputs, if made for guitar or not, don't provide the
full mids and bass provided by a guitar amp and guitar speaker. Guitar
frequencies are all low to mid range. Hi frequencies are an issue, but
more problematic is the missing mid and low fullness provided by a real
amp and speaker. A good guitar amp and speaker bias the guitars sound a
lot, they don't provide a neutral sound. This is wanted, not bad design!
However, if the sound does not satisfy you, then get a guitar preamp
and not a DI box! maybe a Hughes & Kettner tube thingy (not a
speaker/amp simulation, just a guitar preamp). If you anyway use stomp
boxes, at least too low output level could be compensated by a stomp
box, but it unlikely provides the sound enhancement you get with a
