Noise-free and very affordable!

The Radial ProDI Passive Direct Box is a high-quality, passive direct box that employs a proprietary transformer for both impedance conversion and isolation.

Because of the transformer isolation, problems such as hum and buzz caused by ground loops are eliminated, making it very easy and hassle-free to use. The Radial ProDI features 1/4" thru/input, -15dB pad, and ground lift protected from damage by a protective front panel. Heavy-duty construction, baked enamel finish, and 600-ohm balanced output. 2-1/2" x 4-1/4".

          Took the mike off my amp, put through the pa and a fender acoustasonic 90 as a monitor. Have a gibson j-200 and an old martin 12-28 both with active pickups. The hassle is gone and the sound is great. Wish I had done this a long time ago.

          This is a great unit at 1/2 to 1/3 the price of comparable products. No sound coloration & all the extras you expect in a quality DB. Been using them under heavy touring for years

            This product is easy to use and sounds good. I didn't expect a reduction in volume when played through this devise, but it did not impact my recording.

              Comments about Radial Engineering ProDI Passive Direct Box:

              When I perform at older venues that have antique electrical wiring, no matter how good they try and clear up the signal, humm and sometimes static from the outmoded and worn electrical lines wreck the ability to get the subtle nuances of my acoustic guitars through their PA system.
              This RADIAL DI answers a LOT of those issues immediately without sacrificing too much high end
              signal.

                  We have used many different brands over the years and Radial is the best. All the others failed, some in months, some in years, but this ProDI has never failed us. As the old units failed we kept replacing them with Radials. We now have six, and year after year they do their job. And really dark green isn't a bad color for a DI box.

                    If you are using a PA system this DI box will provide a good signal, when you are using cables 30' long or longer. It has also given more balance to the treble strings while playing bass, which provides a better overall sound and punch in my bass sound. It is built like a tank and no batteries! The only reason I give this four stars is that when I used it with my active bass the treble signal had a slight hiss, so in that case I would prefer to use an active Direct Box, and, yes they make those too!

                    I thought about getting Radial's top of the line direct box, the JDI MK3 with a Jensen transformer, for more than twice the cost. But I can't imagine that the sound would have been any better. Clean, warm, pure sound from my Martin D35 with K&K Sound's Trinity system (sound hole condenser mike and piezo pickup combo).

                      I love Radial! This passive DI is very sold. It has a great pad on the bottom to keep it separated from the ground and safe. This thing is a rock and it sounds great!

                      Great sounding DI

                      By T.M.M.

                      from L.A., CA

                      Comments about Radial Engineering ProDI Passive Direct Box:

                      I have to say, passive is just the way to go. Passive DI's, Passive Basses. But you're looking at this so you probably agree right? Well if you're considering this DI I can tell you first hand it sounds great. I only use it in the studio, so I don't exactly need its "ruggedness", I could've gone with a DI made of paper. Radials aren't just tough, they're also the best sounding DIs on the market. Except for hi-end preamps with hi-z inputs (but that's like cheating). But these really are tanks, I wonder how bored Radial's repair employee is. He probably plays a lot of WOW. Anyway this DI is my go to for every bass and guitar to record in my studio. I re-amp everything so DI is an important piece in the signal chain.
