Transmission Device, a guitar / instrument cord line driver
Labs STD allows you to use long microphone cables or microphone tie lines to
extend your guitar or any instrument cable without the loss of tone and increase
of noise associated with long instrument cable runs. It also has two outputs
for splitting between two amps or between an amp and a direct injection box,
with a selectable ground lift on one output to eliminate ground loop problems.
The STD is
the perfect solution for: the live player who is tired of the tone sucking
wireless rigs but still needs to be able to walk more than ten feet from his
amp; the studio player who needs his amplifier in isolation, but himself in
close proximity to his band mates; the recording engineer using control room
rack mounted direct injection boxes with a player located in the studio or
transistor unity gain buffer circuit utilized in the STD is mounted inside the
special copper tipped phone plug itself. This elegantly simple buffer circuit
was designed to load the instrument pickup properly for a natural frequency
response regardless of cable length and also will eliminate susceptibility of
the cable to extraneous noise sources. The rugged cast aluminum base unit which
sits next to the amp or direct injection box contains the mating circuitry
which utilizes high quality audio graded parts, including Elna Cerafine and
Dale Vishay. The STD base unit is powered by two nine volt batteries that with
regular use will last over one year.
