Don't Lose Your Tone Going Direct!

Countryman's Type 85S stereo direct box connects any high impedance instrument, even piezo pickups, to a balanced mic input while providing a strong, clean signal to the mix board without adding noise or distortion.

The Type 85S uses only hand selected, high-quality discrete components woven into a single ended, Class A circuit - much like a classic tube mic preamp! The sound? Smooth and sweet. Ultra rugged and ready for the road, we've heard stories of engineers running over their Type 85S with a truck and then using it in a gig the same day! Another stand-out feature is the fact that the Countryman Type 85S stereo direct box can always isolate ground, even when running on Phantom power, eliminating unwanted hum and buzz.

Countryman Type 85S Stereo Direct Box Features at a Glance:
  • High quality discrete components for maximum sound quality
  • Accepts phantom power
  • Can be powered with a 9V battery
Don't lose your tone by going direct, use the Countryman Type 85S stereo direct box!
