Recommend a Decent inexpensive guitar signal splitter box.

I'm planning on recording some guitar parts and would like to mic the amp and send the signal through a preamp.
Can someone recommend a decent inexpensive guitar signal splitter.
Cheers and kind regards

It's called a DI box.

A GOOD one is around $100.
Radial proDI for example.

cheers. Do all di boxes split the signal? I thought some were just a single channel. Do You recommend active or passive?

The radial looks good. Right in my price range. Thanks

A passive DI actually is a Mult/Y (2- 1/4" connectors), one goes to the amp the other drives the Transformer.
