This design eliminates the need for batteries or phantom power and maintains a direct signal path from instrument amplifier external speaker output to mixer inputs. With the use of an audio balancing transformer, each device is isolated to eliminate ground loop hum problems.Uses include recording and live applications. Made in U.S.A.
