Used two of them for few years now - sound is warm and noise is really low, pots are of good quality - no noise when turning knobs. You can see knobs and buttons from far away, so no surprise is possible on high gain!

I liked them the most on Grand Piano with large diaphragm mics, close miking - really rich sound!

For DI box, I used it only once on acoustic guitar with pick up and it was great mixed together with Neumann mic for ambience!

Vocals are rounder and need almost no EQ.

Pros:
A lot of gain, low noise, warm sound, sturdy, small and light, easy to control.

Cons:
Sound is a bit altered, so you cannot use them for every purpose. Power cable disconnects very easily (and usually it's lifting itself from the ground), also XLR doesn't have a lock, so avoid placing it where someone could accidentally pull the cables out.

Great value for low price, especially if you need extra preamps for your sound card on late sunday afternoon recording session!

Magnificent!

I went "digital amplification" a few months ago, I was happy with my digital sound at the small to medium music venues.
Bigger venues found my guitar was not making enough gain to stay clear, its channel having to be "pushed hard" it was sounding harsh, I needed a preamp to raise the guitars gain.
I paid ¤100 for a battery powered preamp with TMB (treble mid Bass) & volume control, it is OK, but has batteries,
I hate batteries, always "the weak part" of any sound system.
I then recommissioned an old battery DI box which, helped my guitar gain even more than the pre amp did, but w'out TMB. OK, the digital PA has TMB on all channels, but my guitar sounded "harsh" again.
Then browsing Thomann's pages, I found this Art tube pre amp, no batteries and so many different "hook up" options, XLR & 1/4" jacks in and out, much more clean gain than I will ever need, plus, this little black box really smooths out my guitar sound, harshness all gone.
It works great on the Microphone too, so I may need another.

Awesome versatile tube pre

The ART Tube MP is the first tube pre I have ever used. I bought it because I loved the sound of tube equipment when listening to other people playing and wanted to get acquainted with a cheap version of it before deciding what exactly I'm looking for and committing hundreds of euros.

I use this pre for pretty much everything I play. When playing electric, running my guitar (Epiphone) through this pre before going into an amp (40W Marshall combo) makes for awesome results. Using the full range of input gain and playing around with the amp's gain knobs will result in a very aggressive tone. I don't like this myself but I know some people love it. More moderate settings will result in a powerful, warm sound - there's no other way I can describe it.
When I'm recording acoustic I will typically use two mics for the guitar and record the pickup as well. Running that signal through the Tube MP before it gets to the interface, or even re-recording a clean signal through the Tube MP and mixing those, sounds absolutely gorgeous. The acoustic signal doesn't benefit from a huge amount of gain but just a little bit for tube warmth is fantastic.
I have even used this to add warmth to backing vocals, it can be tricky getting the gain just right but when you do the result will blow you away - it did me, anyway.

I will definitely get more tube gear when budget allows, but I don't think I'll ever stop using this little pre.

A Great PreAmp for your portable H4n recorder!

My intention with this preamp was to boost the sound I get from my Tram TR50 lavalier microphone since my portable recorder's (Zoom H4n, which I purchased from here) preamp just doesn't cut it...

This preamp really boosts the sound without adding any annoying hiss, bum or other electronical noise which the Zoom H4n did when you increased the recording volume.

I record with recording level of 60 in my Zoom H4n (some sources suggest you do not exceed reecording levels of 70 or you will get too much noise) and I use this preamp with the output gain about in the middle between the infinity-sign and the first white line.

For the input I put the knob to the first white line and the sound is amazing for my microphone! I also use the 20+ dB feature, and I use the phantom power this preamp provides since my mic needs it.

It is obviously not the best preamp and there is no on/off-button, you have to unplug the cable. Also, you cannot turn off the phantom power so be careful so do you not feed phantom power to units that don't need it.

Finally; when you combine this preamp with recorders, make sure you turn off the phantom power for your recorders as this preamp will provide you with 48v phantom power.

I turned off my phantom power in my Zoom H4n before I connected it to this preamp to be on the safe side.

A very good benefit for using an external preamp instead of a portable recorder's inbuilt preamp is not only the features and quality but also saving battery time.

For some reason, I get a lot of hiss and hum if I use the cable to the portable recorders so I have to rely on batteries and this preamp saves me battery time since it is connected to my outlet and provides all phantom power for my mic.

This preamp does its job and I am looking forward to invest in higher ends later in the future. Thanks for the fast delivery, Thomann! :-)

P.S. When you monitor the sound you get from this preamp with your H4n, you may hear some noise, but this is not included in the recording so don't worry!

Perfect tool
