Larry Hall: Direct boxes are one of those non-sexy but crucial items in the signal chain. They get little attention and, like, zero love when it comes to press and gear reviews. But I dare you to go out on any decent sized gig without a handful of them. In the video for this review I was exaggerating when I said that my sound company owns 200 of them but we own a lot and sending out a dozen on a good sized gig is not that unusual. Review with video included.
