Ideal for recording any electric instrument.

As a lower-cost alternative to the D.W. Fearn VT-3 Vacuum Tube DI, this single-channel DI box uses the top-of-the-line Jensen direct box transformer in a heavy-duty steel box, finished with the same high-quality paint as the other D.W. Fearn products.
It features dual 1/4-inch phone jacks for Instrument and Amp, a Neutrik gold-contact male XLR output connector, and a ground-lift switch.

The Passive Direct Box is ideal for recording any electric instrument, such as bass, electric guitar, electronic keyboards, etc. The DI's high-impedance input is designed to properly match any instrument designed to normally feed a guitar amp. The output is 150 ohms, balanced, at mic-level.

The PDB Passive Direct Box is an accessory for the D.W. Fearn VT-1 (#180271) or VT-2 (#180272) microphone preamps that provides high-quality direct recording of electric instruments. It may also be used with other mic preamps.

The PDB takes a low-level, high-impedance, unbalanced signal (such as from an electric bass guitar) and converts the signal to a mic-level, low-impedance, balanced signal to be fed to a professional microphone preamplifier.

•Note that the PDB is not designed to process line-level signals. For that application, the D.W. Fearn LP-1 Line Pad (#180295) would be appropriate.
