The DW Fearn PDB Passive Direct Box is an accessory for the D.W. Fearn VT-1 or VT-2 Microphone Preamplifier that provides high-quality direct recording of electric instruments. It may also be used with other mic preamps. The DW Fearn PDB Passive Direct Box is a lower-cost alternative to the D.W. Fearn VT-3 Vacuum Tube DI. This single-channel DI 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. DW Fearn PDB Passive Direct Box 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. DW Fearn PDB Passive Direct Box features dual 1/4-inch phone jacks for Instrument and Amp, a Neutrik gold-contact male XLR output connector, and a ground-lift switch. DW Fearn PDB Passive Direct Box is ideal for recording any electric instrument, such as bass, electric guitar, electronic keyboards, etc. The 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. Its a a passive device and requires no power. There is little to go wrong with DW Fearn PDB Passive Direct Box and no routine maintenance is necessary.
