Hughes & Kettner Redbox Mk5


The Red Box 5 is the latest version of Hughes & Kettner's award-winning DI box with speaker simulation. Red Box 5's clear, direct sound does not sound like a mic'ed cab – it sounds like the cab itself!

Red Box 5 provides one unbalanced ¼" (6.3 mm) jack input (IN) for line and speaker signals and two different outputs: one unbalanced ¼" (6.3 mm) jack (THRU) lets you patch through the unprocessed signal to the cabinet, and one balanced XLR connection lets you feed the processed signal to a mixing console. An incredible tool for home recording, studio work and even live shows, the Hughes & Kettner Red Box 5 is your key to an authentic cabinet sound – without the cab!

Red Box 5 features the classic Ground/Lift and Pad switches to adjust input gain, and there are also three sliding switches that provide some unusual sound-shaping filters and allow you to subtly tweak your sound and EQ to that of your favourite cab: Loose/Tight: Tight gives you a taut, dense tone that’s great for throatier riffs, while Loose conjures up an airier, softer sound.

Vintage/Modern: The Modern voicing gives you the bark and honk of modern speakers, while Vintage yields a warmer, woollier tone associated with old-school cabs. Small/Large: Small captures the compressed sound of a small housing, and Large gives the you greater girth and added bass of a sizeable cab! The Ground/Lift switch severs the Red Box 5’s ground circuit to eliminate humming or buzzing caused by ground loops and Lift, as the name suggests, severs the connection. Finally, the 0 dB/-26 dB switch selects your input gain level.

Do you offer Next Day Delivery?
Yes, we offer a Next Day Delivery service for in-stock orders placed before 1pm Monday-Friday. Next Day Delivery and Saturday Delivery carries an extra charge. Ivor Mairants Musicentre commit to delivering on time, we rely however, on our carriers to fulfil their contract in this regard, and can not be held liable for any failure of third parties in fulfilling delivery expectations.

Can I change my delivery address after I have placed my order?
Once you have placed your order with us, we are unable to change any of the information you have given us, as most orders are dispatched from our distribution warehouse. Our contract carriers however offer various levels of free of charge enhanced service such as DPD PREDICT, which allows the consignee to be alerted by e-mail and/or text message of the delivery window and allows for changes allowed by the contract carrier to the detail of the actual delivery time and/or location. Where such services are available all orders will benefit from auto enrolment in the services. Ultimately, if there is no-one to sign for your delivery, you will be left a card by our contract carrier inviting you to collect from the depot or re-arrange delivery.

If it proves impossible to deliver your goods within the time allowed by our contract carriers, the consignment will be returned to us and you will unfortunately become liable for all redelivery, and/or redirection charges. Please check your confirmation email for the status of your goods before contacting us. Should you need to change your details, for example you have moved house, you can change your details by email at info@ivormairants.co.uk and the new information will be updated within 24 hours. Please note that any orders placed before changes are made will use your old details.

Can I track my order?
