Whirlwind HOTBOX Overview

The HOTBOX direct box from Whirlwind converts an unbalanced line, instrument or speaker level signal to low impedance balanced microphone level, which is then suitable for imputing to a console or microphone preamp.

The HOTBOX is an active direct box that operates with batteries or phantom power. Its super-clean front-end circuitry delivers extremely wide and flat frequency response and will reveal hidden harmonics from guitars and basses with high-output passive pickups.

1/4" parallel wired in/out jacks
Input switch selects between instrument/line or speaker level input signals
Ground Lift switch to help eliminate hum and buzz
LED indicates "ON" status
