Para Acoustic D.I.
A direct-in box is useful for connecting a Hi-Z 1/4" cable to a PA system, which will typically have Lo-Z XLR inputs. You may want this item if you are using the Dusty Harp Pickup and regularly need to plug into a PA mixer instead of an amplifier. The L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I. is both a direct-in box and a preamp. It will do everything the Gigpro preamp will do, and also has an output for a microphone cable. A variety of other bells and whistles allow you to shape the sound more accurately and connect external effects processors to your system. Requires a 9-volt battery or phantom power.
