Introducing the DirtBox, a phantom powered distortion effect box for microphone level signals! Just plug any dynamic microphone into the DirtBox to get amazing analog distortion tones.

Building on the success of the DrAlienSmith DirtMic-01, we've taken that very same circuit and put it in it's own enclosure. Now any microphone that's plugged into the DirtBox becomes a distorted beast. The DirtBox perfectly matches your Low Z mic to the distortion effect and then again to the preamp so it's a simple solution that packs a lot of punch.

The circuit has been designed to run off 48v phantom power so no batteries or power supplies are needed. Simply plug the mic into the DirtBox input, then plug the output into any mic preamp and turn the phantom power on.

The amount of distortion on the DirtBox is controlled by the ‘pre-gain’ volume pot, the red knob. Turn the gain right up to 10 to capture unique, dirty flavors from any sound source or try lower gain settings for a more subtle tones.

The DirtBox has been designed to be a recording studio tool but there is potential to use it for live performance. If you are using a Cardioid or Supercardioid microphone and you keep the gain levels low you should be able to control any feedback. However, due to the nature of live distortion, you'll have better chance of success if you have a smart sound person and you keep the stage volume low.

Check out our 'DirtBox Demo Song' video on Youtube. We'll add more sound tests and videos over the coming weeks.

The DirtBox comes with a manual and is covered by a 12 month repair or replace  guarantee.
