Guitars and basses output a high impedance unbalanced signal whereas microphone inputs on mixing consoles are balanced and require a low impedance signal. The direct box matches levels and impedance and balances the signal while minimizing noise and hum. It also allows you to run cable over long distances without signal loss or added noise.

The Whirlwind IMP2 is a world-famous passive DI found in pro systems everywhere and a quality choice for acoustic or electric guitars or basses with active pickups. It's made in the USA, built rugged on the inside and outside, and comes with a 3-year warranty. It features 1/4" parallel-wired in and out jacks. The parallel out jack jack allows you to feed the input signal unaffected to another piece of gear, such as your amplifier, while feeding the balanced signal to a mixer. The ground lift switch helps isolate hum and buzz by disconnecting the ground and the input and XLR output. Leave it in the ground position unless you hear unwanted noise. Whirlwind has been around for over 40 years and in 1981 they developed and produced the first commercially available direct box in the audio industry. The IMP2 will convert unbalanced signals to balanced so that you can run cable over long distances without signal loss or added noise. They're highly reliable, take up little space on stage and don't have a bunch of switches that can accidentally end up in the wrong position.
