Countryman’s Type 85 direct box connects any high impedance instrument, even piezo pickups to a balanced mic input while providing a strong, clean signal to the mix board without adding noise or distortion.

The Type 85 uses only hand selected, high-quality discrete components woven into a single ended, class-A circuit - much like a classic tube mic preamp! The sound? Smooth and sweet. Ultra rugged and ready for the road, we’ve heard stories of engineers running over their Type 85 with a truck and then using it in a gig the same day! Another stand-out feature is the fact that the Type 85 can always isolate ground, even when running on Phantom power, eleminating unwanted hum and buzz.
