Direct box
Designed primarily for acoustic guitars, the StageBug SB-1 is a compact active direct box that measures less than 2" wide x 3.85" long x 1.3" high, and is powered using standard 48V phantom power. It features a standard 1/4" hi-Z instrument input, a low-Z balanced output to feed the PA system, plus a tuner output that works double duty as a thru connection to feed an on-stage amp. All connectors feature glass-filled nylon construction and nickel-silver contacts. Through-hole parts are employed throughout for optimal signal transfer. This is combined with a full ground plane to reduce noise. Flat response is20Hz to 20kHz. It is also equipped with a -15dB pad to handle high output active instruments and a 180-degree polarity reverse to help tame hot-spots on stage and eliminate resonant feedback.
