About this item



Radial Pro48

The Radial Pro48 is an active direct box designed for use on stage or in-home recording studios, with exceptional signal handling for use with both active and passive instruments.

  • High-performance active direct box
  • Increased dynamic range and headroom
  • 48V phantom powered with switching supply
  • Ideal for acoustic guitar and bass

Exceptional sonic performance

The Pro48’s innovative internal switching power supply significantly increases headroom producing less distortion while yielding a smooth, linear response that extends from 20Hz to well above 40kHz. This results in a natural, uncolored signal that is as good or better than DI boxes costing several times more. The superior performance makes the Pro48 an ideal candidate for use with battery-powered active basses and acoustic guitars that tend to overload other direct boxes.
