The Pro48 from Radial Engineering is a high-performance active direct box designed specifically for guitars and bass with active pickups that produce considerably higher output. It exhibits excellent headroom and dynamics.
Utilizing 48V phantom power from a mixing console, the unit employs an innovative digital switching power supply that significantly increases headroom and allows for less distortion while yielding a smooth, linear response.
This makes the Pro48 an ideal candidate for use with battery powered active basses and acoustic guitars that can tend to overload direct boxes. An input pad helps prevent overload from hot signals and a ground lift switch is provided to reduce noise caused by ground loops.
The Pro48 is constructed using 14 gauge steel with Radial's unique book-end design that provides protective zones around the switches and connectors. The internal welded I-beam construction assures outside stress will not torque the PC board.
