Radial StageBug SB2 Passive Acoustic Instument Direct Box
The high-performance direct box design of the Radial StageBug SB2 Passive DI is built compact to fit inside of a guitar case for the needs of the touring musician. Ultra-compact and feature-packed the SB2 uses a convenient 1/4 inch instrument input and thru-put to feed an on-stage amp or tuner. Impedance matching and signal balancing is made with the onboard custom Eclipse ET-DB3 transformer. When using extra high output instruments, a -15dB pad can be inserted into the signal path enabling the SB2 to be used with active basses and digital pianos that often tend to overload the input side of the interface.
Radial StageBug SB2 Passive DI Features
- Passive DI for bass, acoustic and keyboard
- Ultra compact to fit in your guitar case
- Plug & play easy to use feature set
- Transformer isolation eliminates noise
An innovative stereo-to-mono merge function provides a convenient way to connect stereo keyboards and computers without having to reset the source for mono operation, saving time and input channels on the PA. The SB2 output features an XLR wired to the AES standard with pin-2 hot.
Once connected, the SB2 delivers a smooth warm sound reminiscent of older vintage gear. The Eclipse ET-DB3 transformer is magical in its ability to handle extreme signal levels with a natural compression that is pleasing to the ears. The transformer also helps eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops by isolating the input from the output. This is augmented with a ground lift switch that lifts pin-1 on the XLR for quiet, professional results.
These features make the StageBug SB2 a great choice for electric bass, acoustic guitar and keyboards where small size and big performance matters!
