1-channel Passive Direct Box with Instrument Thru

Affordable Mackie MDB direct boxes are acoustically transparent and ruggedly built to ensure that your instruments and audio sources arrive at your listeners clean, uncolored, and as expected. Premium passive analog circuitry gives the Mackie MDB-1P a musical, linear response. A -15dB pad protects the input from high-level sources such as active pickups and mobile devices, while a Ground Lift switch eliminates grounding loop issues you may encounter in the wild. Thanks to its “Built-like-a-Tank” construction, the Mackie MDB-1P Passive Direct Box from Sweetwater is likely to earn a permanent spot in your gigging rotation.
