          Used on acoustic guitar setup in a gig and it worked as advertised. Didn't lose any sound changes through my amp.
          Love it.

            I use it to take the speaker level from my 5 watt Victoria 518 and input it to solid state amps and PA.

              I'm using this to plug my electric guitar into my Mackie mixer. Picture doesn't show it but it does have an XLR balanced connector.

                  having been using the Director boxes for years for our church worship teams. A great box at a great price.

                      When you need to run instruments through your sound system, you have to have at least one and in our case six.

                        I've used this on pickups from a number of acoustic instruments: violins, mandolins, guitars, etc. It always has a clean sound and the features I need to enhance the quality (if necessary) like a ground/lift switch, impedance switch for the input (instrument/amp) and a filter switch. Plus it's passive so I don't have to worry about phantom power. I love it!
