DIB-443 Sidekick Passive Di Direct Box

The Sidekick Passive DI Box by Hosa Technology makes it easy to connect your guitar, bass, or keyboard directly to a mixing console! It features an isolation transformer that transforms an instrument-level signal to a line-level signal. It works with each of the following:

• Electric guitars, basses, and keyboards
• Pedal effects and effects processors
• Any electronic musical instrument with a mono phone output

Use the Sidekick to “go direct” for a pure, clean, noise-free tone that is perfect for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) or throw the INST/LINE switch to LINE position to allow your amp to drive the line for a natural, overdriven tone. Either way, it's your sound - all of it!


  • Connector(s): 1/4 in TS to XLR3M
