There is nothing to complain about

Ivica, 19.12.2009
This part is one of the kind where you ask yourself, why did not I buy that years ago? It's almost free for the price and in combination with a micro or piezo pickup, the sound is simply super great. I would have never thought in life that the part is so good at the price.

Minuspunkte: unfortunately he does not work with the phantom power of my mixer or acoustic amplifier. So you have to carry the annoying power supply always. Too bad, because with the feature, Art Tube would be just perfect but maybe the tube draws too much juice. There are no more negative points.

Advantages: Processing: very stable, potties and knobs well-dimensioned and easy to use. Sound is great: makes every dynamic micro a warm tube mic. From the piezo takes kind of sharpness out which is so typical for the piezzos. Finally, my western guitar sounds nice and warm. Provides the same phantom power, so you can use very well with Kondenzatormics, which I also do :-)

Practice: now ART Tube is my all-purpose weapon. Singing, guitar over mic or piezo removed, the part does everything with and always makes the sound better than it is without. Soon I will buy another one because I am annoying. At the price I smile now ;-)

Amazing!

Dominik S., 03.10.2009
The Art Tube MP Preamp is a big surprise!

The operation is easy, as is typical for a preamp. Gain and output controls, diverese buttons for 48V phantompower, phase rotation, and an extra gain.

Operation: 5 stars

Super equipment! Tube, diverese functions as described above.

Features: 5 stars

The sound is really good. Much better than expected. Singing with a Rode NTK sounded very fine and differentiated. Guitar with an AKG C451 sounded very warm and pleasantly clear. Noise is absolutely none detectable. Must not hide before my MotuInterface.

Sound: 5 stars

The workmanship is terrific, all very sturdy metal, buttons and potentiators are pleasantly stable.

Processing: 5 stars

Overall: Great! Absolute price / performance tip!
