    Ideally I'm looking for a straight trade for a Myco Three pedal, but I am open for trades/partial trades that include a compressor or overdrive pedal. --- Or will sell for $225

    The APD-1 is a direct box that uses a unique transformer custom made by Mercury Magnetics. It also includes a high quality effects loop, variable gain switch, 2 inputs with individual mute switches, a phase switch, and an fx "to amp only" switch. This is a serious studio quality direct box with incredible clarity and response. The condition is about a 7.5-8/10 because of some slight paint rub or chipping on the bottom edges...not bad at all and I am being perhaps more critical than necessary. I believe I am not mistaken in saying that this is the rarest of all of Steve Rabe's units.

    Front panel features
    • Two independent inputs, each with their own In/Out switch.
    • Side chain effects loop with Blend Control.
    • Effects Assign Switch. Effects can be routed to both the XLR and To Amp jack, or just to the Amp output.
    • Passive Phase Reverse switch. Affects XLR out only.
    • XLR Pad with -20dB, -10dB, 0, and +6dB positions.
    • Mute switch with red LED indicator.
    • Power switch with green LED indicator.

    Rear panel features
    • To Amp jack. This sends the input signal to an amplifer or other unbalanced input.
    • Tuner send. Being on a side chain and isolated, it will not load down the
    • instrument.
    • Effects Send and Receive jacks.
    • Balanced XLR out with Ground Lift switch.
    • A/C adapter In jack.
    • Dual 9 volt battery holder.
