Countryman Type 85 overview

The Countryman Type 85 is a compact direct box that connects instruments with high impedance pickups, such as piezo pickups to a balanced XLR type microphone input. The Type 85 utilizes high quality components and class A circuitry to ensure pristine audio fidelity and lowest possible noise floor. A ground lift switch further minimizes noise and hum caused by faulty electrical lines. The Type 85 operates via +48 Volt external phantom power or 9 Volt alkaline battery.

Ground Lift Switch
