    Up for grabs is this Radial Stage-Direct DI box. It features a Tuner out, Phantom Power option, Polarity switching and a Mute switch. It is a great Tool that I have enjoyed for almost 2 years. It was at the end of my pedalboard so I could run it to the Front of House and to my rig. Comes with the 15v Power Adapter (I may have used the adapter once, as I always run the pedal using Phantom power). It also has the original box, with papers, sticker etc..

    The unit is very clean, it's lived on my board since I got it. I removed the rubber feet and have Velcro strips underneath. At current, I have only found 3 of the 4 rubber feet, that could be glued back on, or you could replace them with a new set from Walmart or Home Depot at about $1.79

    PayPal is the Preferred Method of Payment. I am thinning out stuff, and do not have any trade considerations.

    Shipping via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx Ground, with proper packaging and insurance. I doubt it will fit in your mail box, so make sure you give an address where it can be received or safely left.

    The StageDirect Active Direct Box with Mute Switch from Radial Engineering is designed for musicians who require extra control when they are on stage. The StageDirect is equipped with a hi-Z input for the instrument, a thru-put for the stage amplifier, and a balanced low-Z output for the PA system. It also features a dedicated tuner output and footswitch that mutes the signal going to the PA and stage amplifier while leaving the tuner output active. This enables the artist to mute the guitar when not in use or quietly tune in between songs.

    The circuit design of this unit combines a class-A FET input driver with a low-noise op-amp to deliver exceptional audio at all frequencies. A -15 dB pad may be inserted for extra-high output instruments such as active basses 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 footswitch or may be remotely controlled by connecting a momentary (non-latching) footswitch (sold separately) to the dedicated 1/4" 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.
