MGR/Andrew Nicholls's review"ART TPS"

I was looking for a relatively inexpensive tube preamp, and found this one for $250 CAD at my local music store.

I love the v3 feature - variable valve voicing - because it makes it easy to get set up fast. The unit lets you select what you are recording from the rotary selector and how much tube sound you want. Very nice feature.

I don't like having no TRS input on the back... it has a trs/xlr combo on the front for input but only xlr input on the back. Makes it hard to use with my patchbay.

Also.... it's purple....

This thing is heavy! Although most tube stuff is. Luckily the rack ears are strong enough to hold it up without rear support. I have some other ART gear and all of it has been reliable.

Quality unit, worth the money.

use child while frontage, presets ...


Good sound quality.


Mine is original and I have nothing to complain about, heat, grain, while remaining clean. The sound gets a hit on and presets are all well screwed.

On arranger keyboard (korg m50) it changes my life, sound seemed tasteless and cold at the base gets hot, gritty, sexy and hot bro!

On acoustic guitar (yamaha) outstanding, every time I have the results engaging and full of life.

On bass (5 string warwick corvette classic) was also successful in the desired grain. On a typical metal (full EMG) sound sharp but a little cold coffee is transformed into a crematorium.
On my electric bass (Palatino VE500) very impressive, you'd think it's a real bass transplanted in fashion bow Hmm not very significant.

On microphone singing there as what to do voice and grain, the sonic palette and frequency range of the guy in general it works, except of course my voice, which always poses problems, but it is my voice;;

On electric guitar I just tried everything, I'm pretty metal I then suddenly I don not have too much utility in the chaining or otherwise, except to save transplanted by micro course, and it's been his job.

Great product, I was a little disappointed by the Company in the past (1 channel preamp tube art thing, a brief merdouille) but I must say that this machine is really efficient and nice and easy to use, thank you presets.
That exactly what I needed.

Northern People's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

This is the analog lamp. 2 channels
There is a version with an output numrique. But it's more than 100 euros more.


Systm select the bandwidth of each type of instrument is gnial.


Good sound reproduction. But not exceptional. Lack of brightness


Good quality for money. The key is l. But it's not the stuff of exception. I think I'll fall for the TAMPA

Crusher's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)



Same, can not be simpler


The good I give my opinion because I found myself without enough brightness and dynamic. so I opened the rack to see what type of lamp there was in it.
result there was a Sovtek 12AX7 WA, that is, the light goes everywhere with Sovtek.
so I replaced with a Sovtek 12AX7 LPS and I rcupr dynamics and shine.


True the price is not bad, I used to a lot of things, voice, guitar, percussion and does.
a remake for the same budget if after see
