How do you send the
purest, warmest and most natural signal out of a high-impedance instrument to a
balanced mic input at the console? Countryman's Type 85 Direct Interface box.
Reflecting the ultimate
engineering and highest-quality materials, the Type 85 DI Box adds nothing and
removes nothing from the instrument's signal. No distortion. No electronic hum
or buzz. No loss of dynamic range. It's the only active direct box that delivers
such a clear, strong, warm signal to the mixer.
What's more, its design is
sleek, compact, and virtually indestructible, and its 9V battery back up to
phantom power helps ensure it will never lose power onstage. Countryman's Type
85 is hands-down the most valuable and cost-effective direct box on the market!
