We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

Samson's range of Passive D.I Boxes have helped musicians around the globe for both live sound, stage and studio applications. Ideal for connecting an unbalanced line or instrument signal to a microphone level balanced input without a mixing desk, the MD1 offers a portable and hassle-free balanced signal solution for recording and live performance.

Premium sound circuitry with durable, roadworthy construction

The MD1’s Thru jack enables you to tap off the signal from the input and pass the signal to an amplifier or monitor without affecting the original audio. This can eliminate the need for miking guitar amplifiers, which depending on your application may be preferable, especially as more musicians are using in-ear monitors.

Housed in a 14-gauge steel chassis, the MD1 is built to withstand the abuse of the most demanding live tours. Its rigid outer shell protects all the MD1’s internal connections, switches and solder joints from failure, ensuring quiet, reliable performance.
