The classic Type 85 FET Direct Box connects any high-impedance instrument pickup—even piezo pickups—to a balanced microphone (XLR type) input. It provides a strong, clean signal to the board without adding noise or distortion. The Type 85 uses only hand-selected, high-quality, discrete components woven into a single-ended class A circuit, giving it an incredibly smooth, sweet sound.
Unlike many active DI boxes, it can always isolate ground, even when running on phantom power, to help eliminate hum and buzz. Provide 48V phantom power and the Type 85 will automatically use it, or it will run for about 400 hours from a single 9V battery. Connectors and switches are recessed into a single-piece extruded case with extra-thick walls, making it nearly indestructible. Internal electronics are molded in a solid epoxy block and fully protected against electrical damage. The input can withstand 220V AC and static spikes up to 20,000V.
This direct box works nicely as intended and is in good cosmetic condition, showing some light signs of wear as can be seen in photos.
