The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Venue DI is the first all-discrete acoustic guitar pre-amp to unite a transformer-coupled DI output, an EQ and footswitches for its volume boost and tuner.

The full capabilities of the Venue DI become clearer as you start to play. The 5-band EQ has tunable low-mid and high-mid band capability, and is specifically tuned for acoustic instruments. The Venue's transformer-coupled DI output allows for maxiumum isolation. The footswitch for volume boost can be used to compliment your playing style whether to compensate for changes in style or to highlight a solo. Players can use the DI to pre-set the desired amount of boost. There is also a footswitch for the chromatic tuner which is easy to read and mutes all outputs when activated, so your tuning will not detract from your performance.

The phase inversion button on the Venue DI will provide you with your best sound and feedback control, even whilst the Garrett Null anti-feedback notch filter provides effective feedback control by sweeping the primary feedback range of your acoustic guitar and cutting the frequency that can cause feedback or ringing.The adjustable gain dial is one of the most important features to achieving optimum sound quality and signal-to-noise ratio. The LED clip meter visually optimizes the gain setting so you can get the appropriate setting every time.

Press Reviews

"If you need a clean-sounding preamp with plenty of gain, powerful EQ, DI functionality, and a built-in easy-to-read tuner, the Venue has everything you could ask for, all in a single, sleek, well-designed package... Between the features and the clean sound, the Venue might well be the only thing you need between your guitar and the sound system."

Acoustic Guitar Magazine

"The Venue D.I. allowed me to isolate and elevate the low-mids without saturating the hi-mids in cloying brightness, and let me access a fullness of tone I never thought I could access from this guitar again."

Guitar Gearheads

"If you frequently plug into PA systems, this can be a tone-saving device that can give you the option to control your sound completely. The clean boost and feedback control are simply fantastic, and combined with the EQ, Gain and Volume controls, this could become essential gear for acoustic players everywhere".
