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

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
Preamplifier lamp phantom power, phase reverse, 20dB gain reduction, limit
1 channel
1 XLR input
1 jack 1/4 trs
Ditto for the outputs
1 VU meter


Ultra simple to use, there's t really need the manual?
First used to power a condenser microphone (my first) for
Taken lead voice.
I always use for micro mood after changing the lamp.
Possibility of fine-tuning through two large knobs + saw accurate meter
Phase inverter: sound, especially for my use
Attenuator: I do not use it but it can be very useful
Limit: do not use it, especially in the recording, it is horrible


For the price, that blame him? Even on a micro low sensitivity and low gain I have no breath. Transparent preamplifier as the input level is quite low.
The lamp begins to be felt beyond, we obtain a saturation ... Not very pretty.
I would recommend 1000 times a beginner or anyone on a budget.
TIP: If you are passionate and brave enough, it is possible to change the lamp. Look how is a quality lamp and you will see that it's worth it.
To me, the original lamp is not made to be biased. on the other hand, once the light changed, it is frankly very cool to play with the input level to create a beautiful saturation measured to perfection. Then adjust the output level.
Nb: let the heat lamp for 15 minutes


The -:
Limit unusable
No low cut filter
No switch

The +:
Unbeatable value for money
Unbreakable indestructible indestructible
Along race and precision potentiometers meter
Phase inverter
Use once the lamp changed
Connectors and balanced outputs

This costs 35 euros and is Berhinger. Those are the facts. If you know what you can do with!

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
Tube preamp
Two inputs, two outputs, and XLR


Easy to understand, even without the manual.


initially, it is difficult, with little experience of making something clean, but looking for the right ration input / output, we can arrive at the correct results.
Coupled with an AT2020, the voice of spring correctly, no noise, except the PC. Pad -20 is very interesting for vocals.


This is my first preamp

easy to use
very little (or no) breath

Heats up quickly
Without switch

I recommend it to anyone who wants to start.

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
Preamp Tube 12AX7 as written on the News
Connectors XLR or Jack 6.35mm


Easy to use


Here is the real subject, it is a preamp that costs about 50 €, and I have a Joemeek Joemeek SixQ ONEQ and which obviously cost much more.
The microphone input are: APEX 435 or E935 Seinnheiser
Hardware output is: Compressor / Expander DBX266XL, M-Audio Fast Track Ultra 8R.
Result (Experiment 3 years and 4 albums CD): Compared with Joemeek, I can do as well with a little more heat, and it bothers me because the price is not the same.
No breath with the PAD-20dB, the correct dynamics, no saturation by adjusting the output gain at 3 notch from max, and a sufficient power level.
So, I'm amazed, I even pushed the deputy to integrate 2 in a 19 "to have them available in my lap Samson, and according to the grain of the singer's voice (Waitress) I chose a Joemeek or Behringer .


3 years
See above
Value for money: well, excellent
Yes, I would do this choice!

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
Prampli lamp
See the reviews previous ones


Very simple!

Turn the knob to rgler gain and volume, and buttons for options.


He brings a lot of heat when I use it with my bass (Fender PB) and not make trouble with the lace sensor and the pearly gate of my Start Plus Deluxe.
But admont all when I plug my upstream Marshall pedals (compressor, reflector, supervibes, Jackhammer and blues breaker).
The avantege is that I can get the gain without saturation, that's what I was looking for.


I use it for a few months!
I have not tried other model because I bought used to make me a versatile amp.
Trs good report quality price.
This is a great product to make an amp without ruinner house.
I make a box clot (wood) with an HP 35l carvin PS10 (10 ") spcial bass (also secondhand), for the amp is an amp qualizer 10 bands for 4x20W car manufacturing in the 70 (very good quality and given), is your exact Bluff.

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100






Just to tell who had the bad luck with this amp blows they dealt with a faulty model or is their stuff around that was ...
I use this product daily as an interface between the computer and my guitar. my sound card is all rotten, my cables are "first prize", but I have zero breath!
Also, I find his nickel, clean and warm. impeccable, and therefore recommends.

bioman666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
Amp transistors with a lamp in the signal used in sub-scheme (flat starved
/ Starved filament)
48V; pad; limit; phase


Simplicity itself. Gain knob, knob output. One dose of color.

I used the voice of most of the time (Neumann KMS 105 microphones, Audix OM7 various Behr, T.bone SC1100), but also bass, guitar, violin, piano, drums.


Ah ah ah, there it thickens. it's 3 or 4 years that I have the bug and now I have invested in a sixQ of Joemeek, I begin to understand the importance of this small Behr.

If you do not have a preamp and you have used to attack your sound card directly, this little box is a great step forward. It will allow you to adjust the level. That said attention: the color is very pronounced. I did not realize but there is always a small distortion not bad ... On the voice side it gives a rock that suited me well ...

... but the big problem is that the sound is not working: most of the cuts sound exaggerated and EQ tear the ears (see my component "upon my skin") in the acute ... When I got my slice JOEMEEK I had a big blow blues: my sounds were less sharp and less sharp than the Behr. In fact, everything seemed smoother, more accurate, which in my case was a problem. But I've rediscovered the joy of sound that can hack after the catch, and there are miraculous pluggins (Voxengo Lampthruster, Voxformer, harmoniEQ, Waves SSL4000 or even for those who have no morals).


Conclusion: less than € 50 this preamp very largely justified its purchase, one can draw a lot if we try a type, almost too colorful "lights". But if the precision is missing (this is not always the most troublesome in the filthy rock), it is mainly the lack of versatility is missing after a few months or years of use.

Anyway, thank you for this product Behr allowed me to record songs much fair game, to many scenes with a very very decent quality for 50 € ...

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

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100

Using Ultra-simple, perfect for the neophyte, as the pro.
The sound tube is always enjoyable. I change the lamp Sovtek 12AX7LPS (ECC83), (incidentally very correct) that this preamp original team, against a rare ECC803S TELEFUNKEN, the ca gives impetus and gain on the voice.


I made double use of this preamp:

1. Preamplifier for my B42 Melodium, but the problem input impedance of the preamp is 1 Mohm is far too high for Melodium which has an impedance of 50 ohms, if a pipe qq!? or I'll hack the entrance to the preamp with a set of resistance.


2. I use 78's acoustic before 1925, on a plate which KoolSound nicely with a Shure M78S, sound recordings before 1925 had no correction, as to who the RIAA was created for LPs in 1953, and 78 rpm records from 1925 to 1953 Electric had a correction, which differs according to the editors and years, a hundred different corrections!
So I associate the linear tube preamp + a + ADC equalizer studio denoiser (DNR)
It gives a convincing result!


If not for the price nothing to say! after all depends on the use made of it.

If you have ideas, I'm interested!

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

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
It is a tube preamp
it has a phase reverse, limiter and of course a phantom power supply.
can enter and exit XLR or jack.
as is a small box, it is not rack


Simpler, we can not, you plug and it works, it lacks an on / off button but hey you can not have it all.
I use it just for the phantom power supply and it served its purpose.
The manual is clear.


I have often heard that there was breath and well with this box, I do not even know what the word means breath: there is not the slightest breath coming out, even the sound of back of my sound card is gone!
So, I'm an angel, that stuff is perfect!
for coloring, I do not know because I never used my microphone no.


I've had four days.
the +, simplicity, and (for me) the quality of its output
the - for what I did, no -
this is my first model but is excellent value for money, to do over time.

So I do it again because this choice for the price, the result is!

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

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
This is a prampli lamp (12AX7) trs simple.
A gain knob, a volume knob and basta.
Some slecteurs: high impdance, fantme 48V power, phase reverse, limiter.
A saw-nitre basic constitution of 8 LEDs.
1 analog input jack or XLR 6.35 mm.
2 analog outputs can be used at the same time, 6.35 mm jack and XLR.
It is a compact and autonomous which is not intended to be mounted in a rack.

It's simple, intuitive, it works.


There is not really need a manual but it is more than enough.
The rglages are trs simple: just turn up the gain while monitoring a saturation possibly using leds green, orange and red (classic). The output volume is adapted according to the gear which is what derrire prampli.
Ultra-simple really.

A small regret: a saw-nitre latrale situ on the face and not on the face of suprieure Casing prfrable t have to be able to see the level of by far (I play several meters of prampli).


I did some quick tests on voice and acoustic guitar, using a condenser microphone: sound is trs Fidler, clean and warm plutt.

- Gain between 60% and 70%, 50% volume, I found the texture of my guitar with a nice range and roundness. The rhythmic trs go well, the sound is robust without being too heavy.

- Gain 75%, 50% volume: it was round and a lot of saturation in the low lgre on the voice. The blues of my guitar solos are superb.

In both cases, not a pet of breath. A real heat and grain. A lack of brightness is emphasized: the sound spectrum is somewhat diminished in agus, but it may be to my microphone.
For cons, the limiter tends stifle the sound, avoid.


I bought it today, even I have no regrets.
I use it to record acoustic instruments (guitar, violin) with the following configuration:

condenser microphone T-Bone SC400 => Tube Mic Ultragain 100 => PC Card => Cubase SX

In short, as "low-end" cheap but a report qualitprix unbeatable.

Rsultat: I get a real acoustic sound, with heat, some prsence and grain, Fidler and clean (no breath, no cracking). Without touching the EQ and effects, it is good. Not at the same level as a professional studio, although sr.

The report qualitprix is ​​amazing, I do not understand some opinions prcdement destructive read: either there was a manufacturing default, the string sound is silent Designed wrong. But in my case, for recording acoustic instruments in my home studio, great!

I put next to the 10/10 prize: one should not expect Rolls for 60 ...

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

Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100
Prampli lamp. Two inputs and two outputs (XLR and Jack). Two large knobs for the gain in and out. A reducer-20db - effectively a phantom power for condenser microphones - perfect inverseurr A phase and rev limiter ... too effective.


The manual is complete trs (yes) - The config is extremely simple - it's the same simplicity.


The sound is my taste too tuft - I noticed this little default on my voice and bass lines. In both cases I had to go through an EQ. I tried it also on my prampli RUMBLE 100 - that's how I bypass the amp and the combo prampli. A rich, bold, a little breath, lots of gain and a nice natural overdrive - in short the lamp Submitted silent. But again its a bunch too and do not let all frquences speak of ghosts.


I use it mainly for home studio model. It attacks an EMU-404. It fits perfectly on the LAN even if the gain is lgrement voices below. But look at the price! is a good choice, a choice economical and reasonable choice. I do it again this choice.
