Reflecting the ultimate engineering and highest-quality materials, the Type 85 Direct Box adds nothing and removes nothing from the instrument's signal. No distortion. No electronic hum or buzz. No loss of dynamic range. It's the only active direct box that delivers such a clear, strong, warm signal to the console.
Please note that the Countryman E6 & E6i Earset microphones, B6 Lavalier, and Type 85 Direct Box are distributed by Shure, but are manufactured, warrantied, and serviced exclusively by Countryman Associates. All service related inquiries should be directed to Countryman at:
