Vancouver BC - Radial
Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the StageBug SB-48 Power Bar is
now shipping. The SB-48 is a dual channel 48 volt phantom power
designed to power microphones and direct boxes when phantom power may
not be at hand.
Radial's Service Manager Paul Blake explains:
"We sometimes get calls from artists who want to use a clip-on
instrument microphone with devices like the popular Radial PZ-Pre
acoustic preamp. These are usually condenser mics that require 12V to
48V phantom power to make them work. We thought that it
would be a good idea to provide a plug and play solution for these
users. The SB-48 is just that. You simply plug the SB-48's 15VDC power
supply in the wall and it converts the voltage to 48V phantom power,
just like a mixing console or studio mic preamp."
SB-48 Power Bar is a two channel device that features XLR female inputs
and XLR male outputs on each channel. Power is derived from an external
15VDC supply using a non-radiating switcher
to generate 48 volts. When active, an easy to see LED indicator
illuminates to let you know the SB-48 is ready for use. A recessed power
switch also lets you change the output voltage from 48 volts to 12
volts should this be needed.
from 16 gauge steel and finished in baked enamel, the compact SB-48 is
designed to provide years of trouble-free performance on stage or in the
studio. As with all Radial products, the SB-48
is made in Canada and covered by a 3-year transferable warranty.
The StageBug SB-48 is now shipping and retails for $100 USD.
