Just a quick question; what do DI boxes actually do?

D.I boxes take an unaltered audio signal directly from the amp and sent it straight into a mixing desk, hence there name, Direct input or direct injection box.

There mainly used in live sound situation because they obviously dont pick up any background news from different instruments. Some amps most often bass amps will have them built in.

it also uses high-impedence cables (XLR) to avoid signal degridation over a long distance.

Well from amp to D.I it's normal a jack to jack (unbalanced), then D.I to mixing desk XLR (balanced)

This is all for my banjo-playing bandmate, would there be a difference between going straight from the banjo pickup into the PA, or going through a DI box?
