  • Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200

    Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200 - "Good, practical unit for the money "

    09/06/18

    I bought this unit to supplement my Positive Grid Bias Mini Guitar Amp. The Bias Mini is an amp modeler. It sounds great but the 'valve sizzle' was missing in the signal chain. The MIC2200 adds sufficient warmth and sizzle that an amp modeler cannot …

  • Sound Skulptor MP573

    Sound Skulptor MP573 - "I love it!!!"

    04/19/18

    I use this preamp in my home studio/project studio. As I love great electronic circuitry, I wish I could afford a Neve 1073, but since I can’t I decided to try this API500-format rendition of it. The result is a very good surprise. While I can’t ac…

    GML 8304 - "GML 8304 Mic preamps - Gain on a wire"

    10/08/17

    I had a Pro Tools LE rig and a DIGI 001. All in the cost was under $1k USD. I could hear deficiencies. I was reviewing gear for Pro Audio Review. I suggested a review of the GML 8304 and got a green light. That was about 1996-1997. After rigorous tes…

  • Art Tube MP Studio V3

    Art Tube MP Studio V3 - "The Art Tube MP Studio V3 for Home Studio Use"

    04/18/17

    After having recorded several songs with the Art Tube MP Studio V3, I must say it is a pretty good little piece of equipment. It's audio limiting system works best when recording semi-hot signals. However, there are a couple of reasons I didn't give …

  • Triton Audio FetHead

    Triton Audio FetHead - "Powerful and silent."

    11/25/16

    This is an elegant solution to mics that require a lot gain. Device uses phantom power but does NOT pass this on to mics. (A different model is available for mics that require phantom power). Attaching right into the mic your XLR cable goes into the…

  • dbx 286 s

    dbx 286 s - "Not as good as the previous model 286A!"

    11/23/16

    Using with RE20, Mackie Mixer, side by side with 286A. New S model sounds harsh and brittle by comparison. Still a good unit for the money, but I am shopping for another good condition 286A to replace it with. Old model was made in USA, the new one…

  • Art Tube MP/C Project

    Art Tube MP/C Project - "I do like this little tube pre amp "

    03/20/15

    I bought a little ART pre amp to get a bit more control over the interface to the PA system. It does a great job. I was recording to Garage Band with my Mustang II amp and playing my Les Paul. The noise was nasty, I could not clean it up. I put the A…

  • Art Tube MP Studio

    Art Tube MP Studio - "valve warmth in a cheap mic pre / Di"

    02/02/15

    Excellent DI / Mic pre, with dial in valve warmth/saturation. Great for Re-amping techniques and Di signal from Bass / guitar, or providing phantom power. Ground lift, 20db pad, phase reverse switches. jack i/o, xlr i/o, simultainiously. 12AX7 tube …

  • Art Tube MP/C Project

    Art Tube MP/C Project - " Really nice and useful"

    11/27/14

    I've had it for a year. I use it with an electric guitar inserted before the effects chain or a programmable Marshall MG or Fender Mustang V v2 amp. It's a tube preamp/opto-compressor combo with comprehensive connections, all within a compact and st…

  • Art Pro MPA II

    Art Pro MPA II - "Perfect Tube Preamp for Pro's and Starters"

    10/15/14

    Let me start by saying that this unit has been more than just a simple 2-channel tube microphone preamp. It is a tone monster! With selectable impedance, 3 gain stages, 2 choices of High and Normal Plate Voltage and a really useful and transparent Lo…
