Countryman DT85S (Type 85S) Active DI Box

The Countryman DT85S (Type 85S) is a two-channel version of the DT85 FET direct box. With several input connector options, a huge dynamic range, and three pad settings, the Type 85S is an excellent choice for a wide variety of stereo or two-channel applications.

The DT85S connects any high-impedance instrument pickup, even piezo pickups, to a balanced microphone (XLR type) input. It provides a strong, clean signal to the mix board without adding noise or distortion. It won't change the tone or volume you hear from your own amp like passive direct boxes. It won't break just when you need it. It won't develop a dead battery on stage because it runs on Phantom power

Virtually indestructible
Armoured inside and out, with a moulded core wrapped in an extra thick architectural aluminium housing, our DI boxes are virtually indestructible.
