Radial StageBug SB-1 Active Acoustic Direct Box

The Radial StageBug SB-1 Active Acoustic Direct Box is designed to provide a quick and dependable connection from your instrument to the PA. While converting the hi-Z output from your instrument to a balanced low-Z signal, the comapct StageBug SB-1 is made to fit inside a guitar case.

The Radial StageBug SB-1 Active is a high-performance active direct box made for players that are on the move. Made to fit inside a guitar case, the Radial SB-1 is the smallest Radial DI box ever! But don't let the small size deter... this ultra-compact Radial StageBug SB-1 sounds absolutely terrific!

The design of Radial StageBug SB-1 begins with standard ¼ instrument input with a thru-put to feed your tuner or your on-stage amp. The ultra-quiet active circuit at once converts the signal from high to low impedance to reduce susceptibility to noise. The signal is then buffered and balanced for long cable runs to the PA system. 48 volt phantom provides the power, so the Radial StageBug SB-1 does not require batteries or external supply to make it work. You simply plug in and you are ready to go!

The active circuit of Radial StageBug SB-1 features a carefully selected 800k-ohm input impedance to eliminate problems with loading while delivering a crisp, clear sound to the audio system. This delivers extra sparkle to the top end when interfacing vintage guitars with low output pickups and is particularly handy should you plan to use it for recording or Reamping. The Radial StageBug SB-1 is also equipped with a -10dB pad that reduces the input sensitivity to gracefully handle even the loudest active instruments. This makes the Radial StageBug SB-1 perfectly well suited for electric bass and keyboards. To reduce feedback, toggling the 180° polarity switch helps eliminate hot spots on stage that can cause low frequency resonance.

The Radial StageBug SB-1... small size, big heart, huge sound!
