  • Product Description

    How do you send the purest, warmest and most natural signal out of a high-impedance instrument to a balanced mic input at the console?  Countryman's Type 85 Direct Interface Box.

    Reflecting the ultimate engineering and highest-quality materials, the Type 85 DI Box adds nothing and removes nothing from the instrument's signal.  No distortion. No electronic hum or buzz.  No loss of dynamic range.  It's the only active direct box that delivers such a clear, strong, warm signal to the mixer.

    What's more, its design is sleek, compact, and virtually indestructible, and its 9V battery back to phantom power helps ensure it will never lose power onstage. Countryman's Type 85 is hands-down the most valuable and cost-effective direct box on the market!


    • Connects any high-impedance instrument (including piano) to an XLR mic input
    • Active direct box can run off internal 9V battery (~400 hours) if phantom power isn't available


    • Strong, clean signal to the mix board with no added noise or distortion
    • Isolates ground buzz between console and amp


    • Small, compact, sleek design
    • Almost invisible on stage


    • Nearly impossible to break
    • Internal components are fully protected against electrical damage
    • Input circuit withstands 220V AC all day long, and static spikes up to 20,000 volts
    • Five-year warranty
