01-Gold-S.jpg Gold-plated Switches
The signal from the pickups of an electric guitar or bass is so weak that poor-quality cables, cold joints and cheap contact materials ruin your sound. Switch contacts need to be made of special materials to permit loss-free switching of these low-level signals. All Lehle switchers feature special relays and slide switches with gold-plated contacts for totally reliable, absolutely zero-loss switching.

Hum loops and phase cancellations can occur as soon as the signal from an instrument is fed to more than one amp simultaneously. The one and only remedy for this is a high-quality transformer. Standard transformers modify the tone of electric guitars and basses very severely, since they are not designed to handle the low-strength high-impedance signals generated by instrument pickups. The Lehle LTHZ, on the other hand, has been specially conceived for use with these high-impedance signals, preserving instrument tone and the interaction between instrument and amp and eliminating hum loops.
04-No-Hum.jpg No Hum Loops
All Lehle products not featuring an LTHZ transformer and bearing this symbol switch the signal ground parallel to the signal itself via switches or relays with gold-plated contacts. Hum loops are thus effectively eliminated when switching backwards and forwards between different signal sources without, for example, simultaneous activation of two amps.

Equipped with a standard TRS-socket for balanced output signals if needed.
The Lehle P-Split II combines passive splitting with maximum signal fidelity. Its core is the Lehle LTHZ high-end transformer, which electrically isolates the two outputs, eliminating the possibility of ground loops. The Lehle LTHZ was specially designed for use with high-impedance signals but also splits low-impedance signals with uncompromising sound quality. The signal can be picked off either symmetrically or asymmetrically from the ISO output. A phase inverter switch with gold-plated contacts permits reversal of input signal phase at the ISO output, preventing phase cancellations from impairing signal reproduction.
The classical application for the Lehle P-Split II is splitting of an input signal to the two outputs, enabling you to connect your instrument to two devices, which may, for example, be two amplifiers, or an amp and a mixer or recording unit (PC/DAW). Thanks to the facility for also picking off the signal balanced on the ISO output, the Lehle P-Split II is eminently suitable for use as a high-quality compact DI Box for all types of signal. Another useful application for the Lehle P-Split II is as an effective suppressor for unwanted hum. Background noise occurs again and again, caused by ground loops, when two electronic devices are connected to each other - the Lehle P-Split II provides a simple, but extremely effective, remedy, being installed between the two units. Using the ISO output, the two devices are electrically isolated, and this background noise becomes a thing of the past. And: the Lehle P-Split II needs no separate power supply!

Sunday driver
Even under the highest zoom the two oscillograms show no Deviation ... stimulated by the sound of the Sunday Driver XLR he discovers completely new facets: beautiful new world! There are suddenly new nice details in the guitar playing that make you feel like David Gilmour.

Professional splitter
With the P-Split II you can get a absolutely high class splitter at a relatively modest price. It is equipped with best components and built extremely robust, ideal for daily use in studio and on stage. This small box with passive electronics can route one guitar to two amps and features the respective magic buttons to eliminate hum and reverse the phase.

In order to be even more flexible in retrospective, I am using the equally simple and great P-Split II. This little box allows me to split my signal, this way the bass- or guitarsignal goes not only to the amp, but can also be recorded as a pure DI signal at the same time, to be available for re-amping or other software solutions at a later time.

The input has been optimized for problematic high-impedance signal, low impedance signals will, of course, be processed in the same loss-free way. Thanks to these skills the P-Split II can be used as a compact passive DI solution as well as premium isolation box for hum issues of all kind, very convenient.

Lehle – Little Lehle II, P-Split II, Sunday Driver, Parallel L
I don´t know any other manufacturer who gets close to Burkhard Lehle when it comes to quality, performance and robustness. ... if you want to put an end to hum, signal loss from long cable runs or bad bypass-layouts: Lehle helps!
