Radial Engineering Introduces StageBug SB-2 Passive DI

Radial Engineering StageBug SB-2 Passive DIRadial Engineering has introduced the StageBug SB-2 Passive DI, which they say suits well to electric bass, acoustic guitar, and keyboards. The new, compact direct box was designed in response to the trend of reducing gear size for traveling purposes and measures at 2˝ wide and 3.5˝ deep.

The SB-2 revolves around a custom made Eclipse ET-DB3 transformer, which performs the impedance matching and signal balancing. Other features include 1/4˝ input and thru-put, an XLR output, and a 180° polarity reverse switch that toggles pins 2 and 3 of the XLR to adapt to older gear.

The Radial Engineering StageBug SB-2 Passive DI is set to ship in February with a retail price of $80. For more, check out the Radial Engineering website.

    I have this on my pedal board, and honestly, the sb-2 sounds even better than the DI out of my GK 700 RBII amp head. Definitely worth it!
