PreSonus TubePrePublished on 02/11/09 at 19:03
The Presonus TubePre is exactly what the name states - a single channel tube based external microphone preamplifier. It has XLR and 1/4 inch inputs and outputs and is not a rackable effect. It also has buttons for phantom power, a pad, a high pass filter (rumble filter) and phase reverse. All the characteristics make it a versatile preamp and it also has a handy good looking meter.

UTILIZATION

The TubePre is a easy to use and everything is pretty straightforward. It has two knobs for drive and gain, and four buttons for the characteristics I mentioned above. All these options does is make this preamp versatile as you can choose or not to choose each of the options. I never looked too...…

UTILIZATION

The TubePre is a easy to use and everything is pretty straightforward. It has two knobs for drive and gain, and four buttons for the characteristics I mentioned above. All these options does is make this preamp versatile as you can choose or not to choose each of the options. I never looked too much at the manual as it is easy enough to follow and to get a good sound out of.

SOUND QUALITY

The general sound of this preamp is warm and sounds good in a lot of different situations. While it colors the tone a bit, in the right situations this works in a big way. I have used it mostly on bass guitar and electric guitar and it has worked well in both of these applications. It adds a warmth to the sound I can't get with my Digi 002s pre. While this isn't the best tube pre in the world, keeping the price in mind, it sounds really good.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had this preamp for about four years. It has worked great in the applications I use it for, and I don't use it all the time because it isn't the best for recording drums or vocals in my opinion, as it colors the sound too much. The price is the best part about this preamp as you can get a nice sounding tube preamp for a real cheap price. The price is what drove me to buy this and I'm glad I did as it has proved to work in the right situations.

Prampli small lamp, a channel

no pice of plastic! even the knobs are made of steel! has inspired confidence!

UN Drive, gain .. out of phase, a pad, low cut phantom power supply

Between XLR jack Released Same



USE

Nothing to report, really easy .. but useless reduces manual

on the other hand, many minutes you have to go play with the drive and the gain to get what you want ..

I get very often on inaudible sound, but when it works, it works rather well!



SOUND QUALITY

so do not expect a wonderful sound, remember that has cost 100 euros .. we must compare comparable !!

SOUND QUALITY

so do not expect a wonderful sound, remember that has cost 100 euros .. we must compare comparable !!

there is already a step up as art or behringer in these price range!

test DI Box with a guitar .. it works impeccable dynamics, heat, discoloration of the pleasant lamp!
everything what you want

But beware .. is saturated and can easily be surprises during the catch! ...

In my observation preamp is acceptable !! without a good rglage is literally rotten signal !!!!
but once found the right mix has spent !! even though

The lamp will deserve to be changed, but it tien road all the same!

NOTICE GLOBAL

The +

Di box in a great work!
it's solid!
right preamp
some see no cheap plastic

the -

no on off button - the savings on to? even when it is necessary ..
Case Format (not even 1/4 rack) rounded edge has m'enerve!
may be the lamp? but I was fine with me for my use!
low cut off phase to fine ???
I say when PreSonus same hat for doing a product that is worth the money !!

it's not really the tube or Art behringer low-end manufacturing and bad!

it's on !! 200 or rather 300 euros more was better !!! It was worth every penny! I regret my 100euros

Mono tube microphone preamp consists of a backlit VU meter, a gain knob, a phantom power, a button Drive, a phase inverter, a-20dB pad, and a low cut.

The connector on the back has a XLR input jack for instrument 6.35, an XLR output and unbalanced output jack 6.35.

I think the model is rack just visit www.presonus.com.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of this little amp could not be simpler. Drive button that makes all the originality of the unit lets you adjust the sound level coming out of the lamp. The VU meter is a little unclear but certainly you can adjust your output level.

In short a very simple device to use and more may well be used as direct case because of its small size.

SOUND QUALITY

As for sound quality, I am very satisfied. I used it on an electric guitar and percussion, the sound is of good quality with good reproduction of the attacks and transients. Button delivers a Drive you a pretty good heat which makes it particularly well on acoustic guitars.

Compared with the Blue Tube, I find the sound of tube pre-slightly better.

At drums and toms, the result is up as well.
Remains to be seen on the voice ...

OVERALL OPINION

I have 2 and it's been two months that I use. I find the quality / price unbeatable for the lamp.
Of course you can not compare it to another category such AVALON, but for the price it's a good start for a home studio and an interesting solution to cope with the coldness of digital.

In addition he won an Award.
