A simple, rugged direct boxPublished on 05/10/12 at 23:56
However, I have had a few problems getting the direct box to work on stage. Twice, I tried using the Whirlwind EDB1 for a quick live show setup, only to find out the box did not seem to work. I was unable to recreate the problem, and I suspect it might've just been a bad cable or an unplugged connection.
Overall, if you need a basic direct box (who doesn't?), and you can find this item cheap, it is worth purchasing. I may have had some odd problems with this box, but I suspect my problems stem from other factors.
It has 1/4" in and through jacks, an XLR output, a pad switch for connection to "hot" signal sources, and a ground lift switch to help isolate hum and buzz. I haven't yet needed the pad or ground lift switch so I can't comment on those functions. I can definitely say that the exterior contruction is rugged, being a metal case, which is a no brainer considering they DIs spend most of their time laying on the floor when they can be stomped on, have equipment dropped on, etc.
The packaging included the information below:
Impedance Ratio (input to output): 133:1
Frequency Response: 20Hz-20kHz ±1dB
Level Change: -20dB (input to output, pad switch set to zero dB)
Pad: 3 position, provides 0dB, -20dB, -40dB additional attenuation
I like the simplicity of it, its quietness. It does the job. I bought it because the price was great and I trust whirlwind more than Behringer or some of the other brands in the same price range as this unit (under $40). Unless I fork out the money for a SansAmp acoustic preamp, I doubt I'll have to upgrade this unit anytime, and hopefully it will last a long time. If this one was stolen or damaged (through no fault of the manufacturer) I would probably just go buy the same unit all over again.
