Shure Type 85 Overview

  • 1Description

The Countryman Type 85 Direct Box from Shure is an active direct box, that due to its engineering adds nothing and removes nothing from the instrument's signal.

No distortion, no electronic hum or buzz and no loss of dynamic range, instead delivering a clear, strong and warm signal to the console.

Connects any high-impedance instrument to an XLR microphone input
Active direct box can run off internal 9V battery (~400 hours) if phantom power isn't available
Strong, clean signal to the mix board with no added noise or distortion
Isolates ground buzz between console and amplifier
Small, compact and sleek design
Almost invisible on stage
Single-piece extruded case with extra-thick walls
Internal components are fully protected against electrical damage
Input circuit withstands 220VAC, and static spikes up to 20,000 volts
