Product Description

Provides the ultimate way to connect guitar pickups, contact mics or electric instruments to a recording or PA console without loss of audio quality. Does not load the signal from your pickup, no loss of level or increased distortion. The case is made of indestructible extruded aluminum, recessed connectors and switches, battery or phantom power, internal pad for speaker bridging, true ground isolation, RF filtered. What does it do?The Type 85 connects any high impedance instrument pickup, even piezo pickups, to a balanced microphone (XLR type) input. It provides a strong, clean signal to the mix board without adding noise or distortion.What doesn't it do?It won't change the tone or volume you hear from your own amp like passive direct boxes. It won't add hiss, distortion or buzz like some active direct boxes. It won't break just when you need it. It won't develop a dead battery on stage because it runs on Phantom power.Why does it sound so good?The Type 85 doesn't use a cheap FET opamp. It uses only hand selected high quality discrete components woven into a single ended class A circuit much like the classic tube microphone preamp. The Type 85 has an incredibly smooth, sweet sound.Why is it so hard to break?Connectors and switches are recessed into a single piece extruded case with extra thick walls. You can actually drive a truck over a Type 85 without hurting it. Internal electronics are molded in a single epoxy block and fully protected against electrical damage. ... Read more

Catlog: Musical Instruments
Manufacturer: BBE
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Product Description

The DI-100x is a high-quality professional-grade active DI box for touring sound applications and recording studios. It has a major advantage over other high-end DI boxes on the market, with its built-in Sonic Maximizer processor which employs the BBE 4th Generation Processing Engine - just like the 482i and 882i Sonic Maximizer models. The DI-100x yields excellent results with active or passive bass guitars, keyboards, and both acoustic and electric guitars.   The DI-100x is an excellent choice for transferring any musical instrument signal direct to a mixing console. Above all, the DI-100x was designed without compromise, with paramount imporance placed on maintaining the highest sonic integtity. All of the switches, pots and connectors are connected directly to its military-spec circuit board, rather than ?fly-wired? to the PC board. The primary advantage of this design is that allows the legs of most board mounted components to be dramatically thicker than the narrow conductors commonly employed in many audio designs. All this in a musically engineered and massively constructed DI that can withstand the most demanding conditions.
