Little Labs joins the growing list of Mercenary Edition products with the introduction of the Signal Transmission Device (STD), a guitar/instrument cord line driver.
The STD Mercenary Edition 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 Little Labs STD Mercenary Edition is intended for the live player who is tired of 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, or the recording engineer using control room rack mounted direct injection boxes with a player located in the studio or isolation booth.
You can see the entire series of Mercenary Edition products at www.mercenaryeditions.com.
