Whirlwind IMP 2 - Passive, Single Channel Direct Box for PA or Studio

You Pay: $39.95

The IMP 2 from Whirlwind is a rugged built, single channel, passive direct box. The unit converts a line or instrument level unbalanced signal to a low impedance microphone level balanced signal.

Direct boxes are often referred to as "DI" boxes. This stands for "Direct Injection" as their main purpose is to convert unbalanced and/or high impedance instrument signals into a format suitable for direct connection to a mixing console - without the use of a microphone.

            Comments about Whirlwind IMP 2 Direct Box:

            I run sound once a month for an acoustic performance show featuring many artists taking the stage throughout the evening. The venue traditionally provided mics, cables, and DI's but over time those items have either gone missing or have fallen into disrepair. I decided I would start taking my own mics, cables, and DI's so I went on the hunt for a low cost, but well made and decent sounding box and the IMP 2 has it all! I don't need all that active circuitry and switches and buttons and such, just a simple box to convert instruments into mic sends and Whirlwind has that covered with this excellent product. This little box sounds great too!!!

            Comments about Whirlwind IMP 2 Direct Box:

            Bought a pair of these for use at Church after much searching. I did check user reviews and other information that was available which helped in making the decision. We have used them to connect one amplified acoustic guitar and one base guitar to the main mix. So far we have no complaints. Both instruments are easy to regulate, there is no hum or distortion of any kind, neither any loss in sound quality. Good product!!

                Used in a smaller room for our church youth worship band. Great sound, well constructed, perfect for electric guitar.
