very good

Ronnie R., 27.09.2016
this is a good basic preamp with tuner built in, I fitted it to a friends guitar and it's way ahead of the original. definitely a must for amping a guitar on a budget

For this price incredibly good

ChrisK, 28.05.2013
This is my 2nd Artec Pramp, which I have installed. The ASE-N is unfortunately no longer in the delivery program and I would rather have a Lower Bout preamp had.

Installation is easy if you download the template from artecsound and print the .pdf without scaling (use the ruler to measure the dimension line). The preamp is inserted from outside and needs little extra space.

A 6.3mm jack socket with a connected cable and 3.5mm stereo jack plug is supplied with the preamp. The cable is long enough, for my terms almost too long. A self-adhesive fastening tab is included.
The piezo is connected with a 2.5mm mono jack, which is not included (Thomann, would be something for a bundle?). The matching Artec pickups have already connected, but I have had an old Shadow Pickup installed.

An Aux input Miniklinke - as in the description specified - does not exist.

The connection sockets are somewhat unconventional. To change the battery, the entire preamp is unfolded and the battery compartment is released. So also the back of the preamp with its jack plugs, which are then also accessible. At the same time, the connection cables are pulled out of the body and something kinked, which I do not find so beautiful. On the other hand, the connection cables are accessible for service purposes.
The tuner is chromatic and works flawless, even with my exotic mood (Cuban Tres, a / A d / d fis / fis).
The preamp takes the maximum out of simple piezo pickups.
The equalizer is very good. The frequencies are very useful and the intervention is big enough. The term Presence is necessary for the very high heights and treble for the high mids. This is usually the other way around. With Presence you can create very sharp heights or reduce the sharpness of the piezo. The center regulator is good for giving the sound more belly or too much mulm to reduce.

For this price an excellent preamp. Amazingly, what is still to be extracted from the cheap pickup still sound.

Just to enhance a cheap piezo is the part well suited.
