Hammer Preamp. Honest and neutral.

Michael R. 652, 23.09.2013
Here my mustard for the Grace M101:

I have searched for a preamp, the microphone signal as far as possible unscathed. The purpose of the application should be to measure as accurately as possible loudspeakers and room acoustics as well as voice and instrument recording.

All fields cover the Grace perfectly! For this price you have to create a multiple to get something comparable and possibly better (see Earthworks and Schoeps). I am very satisfied with the device. Who a. Pre to the uplifting of a voice, is wrong here. You can only refresh muffy Mics with the Ribbon Mic switch. Otherwise the pre is as clear as it is!

No sharpness in the treble, unless it comes from the recorded source or the mic used.

I would always buy again at the same budget and recommend!

A little cheap

14.04.2016
I chose this preamp because it is presented as the best at this price, with a huge gain and a very low breath. For now, I have not been able to test the breath because I have nothing else, behind that Hi-Fi amplifier and STAX electrostatic headphones and it is obvious that the breath I hear can come from The hi-fi amplifier and dynamic microphones that I tested on this preamp. I will give a more detailed opinion, if possible on the site of THOMANN, as soon as I have my micro tape and a correct mixer following the preamp Grace Design.

I can already say that:
- The input gain switch moves on its axis (not very stable axis, possibly plastic);
- The input gain switch has NO mark on the front panel: impossible to locate: a shame at this price!
- As a rubber feet, this preamp comes with four tiny adhesive feet to stick yourself and that will hold the time they hold: a shame at this price;
- The front panel, painted black, gives a worn look as soon as there is a little dust.
- Very good thing: the outputs are symmetrical and asymmetrical, very useful when going to a HIFI channel or to a PUBLIC ADRESS amplifier as is the case in our auditorium (AUX input RCA);
- Very good packaging, absolutely virgin (without opening of THOMANN);
- No visual indication of output level;
- Very good locking and unlocking of the microphone input jack;
- Notice of use only in English and really null: no explanation, no drawing. It is forbidden to sell in France a device without a user manual in French; But both the manufacturer and THOMANN do not seem to care;
- Management of the order: it's perfect; But THOMANN does not respond (or very late to the mails) and there is no toll-free number, so I can not call THOMANN since my phone line can only call in France.
