Product Description

Perfect for both live and studio use, the Mackie MDB-1P is one of the four available models in Mackie's MDB Direct Box Series. It is a passive DI box featuring a 1/4" unabalanced jack input and thru output, plus a balanced male XLR output with Ground Lift. Although the MDP-1P is ideally suited to use with lower-input instruments such as acoustic guitars or keyboards, the -15dB pad can reduce input signal to compensate for high output sources (e.g. active electronics, high-output pick-ups), eliminating distortion. Robust and reliable as well as high in audio quality, this DI box is built with Mackie's Built-Like-A-Tank construction.

Premium Without the Price Tag
Direct boxes are an essential tool for any stage or studio. They make it easy to get clean, low-noise audio to a mixer no matter what instrument you are using. Available in four versatile models, our ultra-affordable DI's offer the Mackie sound quality that you expect with Built-Like-A-Tank construction for maximum reliability. From acoustic guitars to laptops, be ready for anything with MDB Series direct boxes.

Versatility - The Perfect Match
With four models to choose from, you can get the perfect match for your instruments. Acoustic guitars and keyboards are right at home with the MDB-1P and MDB-2P. High output instruments will appreciate the extra headroom in the MDB-1A.

Rugged - Built-Like-A-Tank
From the inside out, MDB Series direct boxes are built to last. Thick steel chassis, impact resistant corners, and long-wearing jacks will keep these in your bag for years to come.

Quality - Premium Analog Circuitry
MDB Series direct boxes offer excellent noise performance and transparency. Whether you are in the studio or performing on stage, your instruments will always sound as good as they do at the source.

Connect - Get the Best Sound from your Laptop

The MDB-USB is the ultimate way to get pristine digital audio from your laptop directly to a mixer or front-of-house in a venue.
