StageBug SB-1, an ultra-compact direct box designed to fit inside the string pocket of a guitar case.
Designed primarily for acoustic guitars, the StageBug SB-1 is an ultra compact active direct box that measures less than 2″ wide x 3.85″ long x and only 1.3″ high. (5.1 cm x 9.8 cm x 3.3 cm) and is powered using standard 48V phantom power. It features a standard ¼” hi-Z instrument input, a low-Z balanced output to feed the PA system, plus a tuner output that works double duty as a thru connection to feed the artist’s on-stage amp. All connectors feature glass-filled nylon construction and nickel-silver contacts for long life without failure. Through-hole parts are employed throughout for optimal signal transfer.
This is combined with a full ground plane to reduce noise. Performance is spectacular with a ruler flat response from 20Hz to 20kHz while being able to handle extreme dynamics without flinching. It is also equipped with a -15dB pad to handle high output active instruments and a 180°polarity reverse to help tame hot-spots on stage and eliminate resonant feedback.
