Use the DI the Pros Choose!

Here's the DI you'll find wherever pros are using them! Whirlwind built the IMP 2 direct box to give you ultra-reliable performance, day in and day out. If you're running live sound, engineering a studio session, or making sure your rig is ready for the stage, then you need this DI! The IMP 2 converts a line- or instrument-level unbalanced signal to a low-impedance, mic-level balanced signal, so you know you're getting what you need from the stage or the recording room into the mixer or interface. This box is built road-tough, so you know it's with you for the long haul!

Whirlwind IMP 2

It works great! I play harmonica at church and use it to hook up to their sound system with 1/4" Cable and my microphone. Sweetwater staff recommended this product. I'm very satisfied.

Affordable and Worth its Use

I bought this after looking at the price ranges for passive direct boxes, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this at this low a price - and amazed further when I got it out of the box and into my signal chain.I have been using it since the day I got it, and it performs its job well. My only gripe is that the paint wears off a bit quick when left on the ground - making it look a few years old after a couple months.. =) Other than that, the ground lift function works very well, and solved me some guitar pickup problems that I was having. If you're reading this review, don't hesitate to place the order now - it won't let you down; and at this price, it's a steal.

Simple, easy, how can you go wrong ? Love it.

Awesome in a Pinch!!!

I was looking for a Direct Box for emergencies and did not consider this one at all. After calling in to my sales representative he steered me toward the Whirlwind, and I could not be any happier! You wouldn't believe how many times now I've either had a) The Guitarist's Active DI go bad or b) Their amp go and I whip out this little baby to save the day. Rugged, Reliable, and sounds great!
