Mackie MDB-1A Active Direct Box

If you play an active instrument such as a guitar or bass with active pickups and preamps? Want your sound to be authentic and free from unnecessary noise? Mackie has the solution! Introducing the MDB-1A, a direct box with increased headroom and distortion-free operation.

The Mackie MDB-1A Active Direct Box features a 1/4" high-impedance input and thru with -20db pad, plus a Merge switch that turns the Thru jack into a second input - perfect for summing a stereo source to a mono output. That means your stereo audio device (keyboard, synth, media player) isn’t be left out of the party! The balanced XLR output features switches for Polarity, Low Cut, and Ground Lift. For maximum convenience, the MDB-1A is powered by 48v phantom power.
