The Pro Co TradeTools DB2 is a passive, two-channel (stereo) direct box that offers clean and reliable performance both on stage and in the studio environment. Like the Pro Co DB1 Direct Box, it can be used for nearly any instrument or signal source, like electric bass, keyboards, drum machines, and submixers.
The DB2 preserves the "punch" and clarity of the sound that is often lost when mic'ing a speaker, and it eliminates the leakage, distortion, and coloration. The signal delivered to the P.A. or studio mixer is crisp and clean - a vital element in retaining the full depth and brilliant sound of digital equipment.
The DB2 incorporates the same reliable design that has made the DB1 an industry icon, with the added convenience of being two direct boxes in one case. The DB2 boasts a low noise floor, high headroom, and a generous frequency response. Using Pro Co's DBT-P impedance matching Transformers with dual electrostatic shields, the input signals are balanced and decoupled from the output. Other features include a ground lift switch to alleviate ground loops and separate 20dB pad switches for each input to alleviate signal overload. As an added feature, the DB2 acts as a transformer isolated signal splitter when used with only one input, presenting the same signal to both outputs.
Built for the road but equally at home in the recording studio, the DB2's rugged 16-gauge steel and aluminum "Uni-box" enclosure is finished in a durable black texture powder coat finish with black anodized aluminum side channels. Easy to read control graphics are incorporated into the Lexan® top panel overlay.
