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


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.


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 ...


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.
