Alesis MicTube Solo & Duo
Alesis announces that MicTube Solo and MicTube Duo microphone preamplifiers are now shipping to pro audio retailers.
The MicTube Solo and MicTube Duo are single and dual-channel vacuum tube preamplifiers respectively, designed to add warm, vintage tone to microphones and instruments. Suited for recording or live setup, the MicTube preamplifiers feature control layouts, and vintage tone, courtesy of its 12AX7 tube. Aside from the tube, each model features a minimized circuit path.
The MicTube Solo and Duo amplify the input signal of condenser or dynamic microphones to line level, adding as much or as little of the tube’s signature sound as desired. Recording artists and engineers will find a -20 dB pad switch for mics with hotter outputs or louder sound sources. Phase reverse switches are designed to help optimize multi-mic setups, and 80 Hz high-pass filters help cut bass, handling and wind noise. Both preamps provide +48 volt phantom power for condenser microphones.
In additional to standard three-pin XLR jacks for microphones, the MicTube Solo and Duo offer 1/4-inch DI (direct injection) jacks for plugging in guitars, keyboards and basses. Separate Gain and Drive (“vintage”) controls are designed to let users dial a blend of level and tone. XLR and 1/4-inch outputs complete the package.
