The Tube Preamp Everyone Loves!Need a budget preamp that performs at pro price? The ART TubeMP is the most popular desktop tube mic preamp in the world! Why? You guessed it... it's an absolute steal, giving you big-time performance at pizza delivery guy price. The ART TubeMP features a hand-selected 12AX7a tube for sweet, rich, tube-laden performance. And using the variable gain and output controls (not to mention a low/high impedance selector and a limiter), you can get a wide range of tones. You'd have a hard time finding something else this versatile, this awesome-sounding for $150... and this thing is half the price. Awesome.
Here are the other details you'll want to know. First, you've got up to 70dB of clean, "musical" gain... that's enough for all the mics you own. And there are XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs, so you can connect gear any way you like. At this low price, you might as well get a second one for stereo tube preamp action. And remember, there's a sweet phase invert switch so you won't run into phase issues when you use more than one of these little guys.
