SWAMP DI-120 Passive Stereo DI Direct Box - 2 Channel
Quality Passive Direct Box
The SWAMP DI120 Stereo Direct Box (DI box) is a quality 2 channel passive direct box for transforming high-impedance (Hi-Z), unbalanced guitar/instrument outputs into low-impedance, balanced inputs.
When to use a DI?
A DI box basically turns a "instrument" signal, into a "mic" signal. Used when you have an unbalanced, high impedance instrument, like a guitar or keyboard, and want to plug it into balanced XLR microphone input, such as on a mixing desk / PA system. Vital for stage performers that are required to plug into balanced XLR multicore stage boxes.
Featuring dual inputs, This DI is perfect for any keyboard player, allowing both left and right channels to run through the same unit. Also useful for multiple acoustic guitars. Combining two DI's into one, this unit will save loads of space on stage.
Pad, Ground Lift and Link Outputs
Link outputs allow the musician to also connect to their regular stage amps as well as sending a signal to the mixing desk. Selectable pad settings will dampen hot signals and a ground lift switch for each channel can remove ground loop noises.

Swamp DI boxBy: John Beeton on 13 January 2021It works well for me ! I use it to reduce the mixer signal line-level down to a usable mic- level , a signal that my mini stereo zoom H1 recorder can handle with zero clipping.. Also I use the ground lift on one side. The DI box has three levels of db input levels which can be adjusted independently. The Swamp DI-120 is a solid unit
Great ValueBy: Bradley Hunter on 15 October 2017At less than half the price for comparable passive stereo DIs it's great value. Solid unit. Been using for six months now and it has been faultless.
SWAMP DI-120 Passive Stereo DI Direct BoxBy: Peter Dohnt on 23 September 2017Purchased for use as a keyboard DI but on the night was required for line level from a PC for audio over distance accompanying video projection. The audio was a relatively hot line level and there was no hysteresis distortion to be heard. Delivery was quick and the value for money on this product is excellent. I cannot speak to standard instrument level use but see no reason why it would perform any less well. Recommended item. Exactly what was expected I give this 4 stars instead of 5 only because the transformer is not specced.
By: Sean on 31 January 2016Solid little unit. Using for running backing tracks thru FOH and in-ears it has been flawless.
