Headway EDM-1 Mini DI Preamp


The Headway EDB-2 has been a popular live solution from many acoustic musicians, from guitarists to violinists.  Now Headway has taken many of the features from the EDB-2 and streamlined them into the extremely small package of this EDM-1.  With approximate dimensions of 4" x 2.5" X 1", this is easily the smallest preamp/DI we've seen, and it will even fit in some violin and mandolin cases!  

This little preamp functions as a powerful DI via the TRS output jack, which can also be used with an XLR cable via the provided 1/4" TRS to XLR adapter.  It will provide 9v phantom power through the TRS input jack for active pickups (such as the Highlander IP-IX) and certain condenser mics (such as the DPA 4099G).  The EDM-1 gives you a powerful EQ and tone-shaping technology in a package smaller than a smartphone, with a rugged steel housing to withstand the rigors of touring.
