    Up for grabs is this Radial Stage Direct, Active Direct Box with Mute/Footswitch. DI is powered by the included, Power Supply, or by using Phantom power. There is a separate Tuner Output and also a Remote connection, so someone else (Roadie, girlfriend) can operate the mute functions of the pedal offstage. Pedal is in great shape. The rubber feet were removed, so I could use velcro to attach it to my pedalboard.

    Your PayPal payment gets it shipped via USPS Priority Mail, with proper packaging and insurance to your Lower 48th US state.
    Here is info from the Radial Engineering website:

    The innovative circuit design combines a class-A FET input driver with a low noise op-amp to deliver exceptional audio at all frequencies. A -10dB pad may be inserted for extra high output instruments such as active bases or electronic keyboards. Engaging the high-pass filter gently rolls off excessive bass to eliminate clutter and run-away resonant feedback. A 180° polarity reverse switch can be used to help phase align the on-stage amp with the PA or eliminate acoustic 'hot spots' on stage by electronically moving the problem out of the way. A pair of full-sized LEDs let you know when the StageDirect is muted or ready to perform. Switching is done locally using the select and mute footswitches, while the mute function can also be controlled remotely by connecting a momentary (non-latching) footswitch to the dedicated ¼" connector. This enables the stage tech to mute the instrument as he hands the guitar to the artist and un-mute it as he walks off stage. Powering may be done via standard 48V phantom from the mixing console or by using the included 15VDC power supply.

    Equally effective for acoustic guitar or bass, the StageDirect works as an extra stage hand by enabling the artist to change instruments without causing switching noise in the PA system.
