In terms of home studio value, a perfect adquisition
You'll definitely don't find this preamplifier in a professional studio sound chain. This having been said, let me recognize that you'll find it every time in the pole position of my home studio record line. This will be true for voices, acoustic guitar and electric guitar... Some may say that they don't hear any difference in the sound when using this tube preamplifier. That you need a real big sized valve to get this precious old times vibe. Well, let me be subjective and tell that the Art Tube makes me happy. Of course not in the amount as a sixties Marshall combo would make me, but anyway. Specially when acoustic guitar is involved, it nicely warms up the sound. With the voice it does it in a more subtle way. With the electric guitar, turning the input knob clockwise you get a beautifull overdrive. Do the opposite and you get clean levels... Then, some may not care about the old fashioned needle pointer. Then again, I love it. When adjusting recording volumes it's a lot easier to notice the clips with this than with leds... The preadjusted control for different inputs helps quickly to get the desired result. That's all.
Possibly the best 'value for money' item of musical equipment I own, I have used and continue to use the Tube MP V3 (nearly nine years later!) for adding tube driven warmth to both vocals and various recorded instruments, including electric and acoustic guitars, bass guitar and keyboards. I recently secured a publishing deal with music recorded using this unit.
Although there is no need to match the labelled settings on the selector dial with the actual instrument in use, a little experimentation with the dial allows you to find the best sounding setting. Input and output levels can then also be set to keep signal clean or overdrive the valve to suit. Unit also has phantom power for mics, reverse phase and db boost switches. All in all a brilliant value, highly usable unit - proving that you do not need to spend seriously large amounts on overpriced preamps and effects. Let your ears decide which products to use and don't waste your money by being a product snob!
