      I have used the IMP2 for decades in professional live sound. Always reliable. That ground-lift switch works wonders.

      Comments about Whirlwind IMP 2 Standard Direct Box:

      This unit is an industry standard because of its simple, uncluttered, reliable profile. It does exactly what it purports to do, and does it without any unnecessary noodling. If plug'n'play appeals to you, then this unit will not disappoint. Period. Every gig bag should have one of these for regular use, or "just in case…"

      Solid little DI box

      By

      Comments about Whirlwind IMP 2 Standard Direct Box:

      It doesn't do much, but what it does, it does well. If you want to plug a hi-Z output (e.g., guitar pick-up) into a low-Z input (e.g., a mixer's mic input), this is what you want. It also has a ground-lift switch (which all these direct boxes seem to have), but that's it for its features. No bells and whistles: it's passive (no battery), no preamp, no tuner, no sound-shaping. But then, it doesn't cost much, and it's very well built in a sturdy metal case. And it's small enough to fit inside my guitar case along with my picks, capos, and 1/4" cable.

      Comments about Whirlwind IMP 2 Standard Direct Box:

      I bought this for the price. I was looking for something to record guitar and bass with. I didn't need any of the other features that other di boxes come with (for ex. having 2 channels - which is nice if you need it, obviously).
      The imp-2 is a great little di box that is going to serve it's purpose.

        The quality is excellent! Nice sturdy metal box and it features a ground lift. No noise or coloration of the signal. Acoustic guitar sounded fantastic and my electric Sans sounds great into the PA as well.

            Comments about Whirlwind IMP 2 Standard Direct Box:

            I have had several of this items for 7 years and still have not fail. Have been able to handle the road abuse and still kicking. Just recently bought a few more since some people can keep their hands to themself, but other than that for me they are worth it and have a clean sound and the ground lift really does work. Hardly had any troubhle since using them in the road and local events. Very durable and worth the moey, case is strong, cool color. Warranty, well wouldnt know yet since i bought 6 about 5 years go here in MSF, still havent had any problems.
