Huge Tube Sound in a Pint-sized Pre!The PreSonus TubePre V2 compact microphone preamplifier gives you serious value for your money. Affordable, portable, and packed with a wide range of rich tube tone, TubePre V2 is one piece of gear you'll constantly find new uses for. First, there's the TubePre V2's XMAX Class A preamp, an astonishingly clean pre that plays well virtually any microphone you can get your hands on. Then there's a the tube tone circuit, which lets you dial in the perfect amount of color. And that's just part of what makes the PreSonus TubePre V2 one of Sweetwater's favorite affordable preamps.
PreSonus TubePre V2 Compact Single-channel Microphone Preamplifier and DI at a Glance:
Class A XMAX microphone preamp gives you award-winning sound
Featured on high-end gear such as their StudioLive mixers and their super-popular AudoBox VSL series audio interfaces, you'll find PreSonus's XMAX preamplifiers in studios all over the world. At Sweetwater, we've rarely come across an integrated Class A preamp that's so universally esteemed. No matter what microphone you plug in, you can count on the TubePre V2 to give you quality sound you can use. You're sure to be amazed by how clean and clear the TubePre V2's preamp section sounds, especially considering the price.
Dual-servo vacuum tube output stage provides rich tube saturation
Unlike most tube preamps, the TubePre V2 lets you add as much or as little tube warmth as you like. That's because PreSonus design it with a 12AX7-driven tube circuit that's completely separate from its preamplifier, allowing you to can cleanly amplify your signal and then dial in tube saturation to taste. From completely clean to total tube fuzz and everything in between, the TubePre V2 gives you an absolutely huge range of tone.
Doubles as a killer tone box for your guitar or bass
The PreSonus TubePre V2 isn't just great for microphones - it also serves as an incredible instrument preamplifier. That's because PreSonus designed it with a separate hi-Z instrument-level input. Plug in your bass and crank up the TubePre V2's tube circuit to get rich and dimensional fuzz, or add the perfect touch of bite to your guitar tone. And with a built-in 20dB pad and highpass filter, the TubePre V2 can accommodate a wide range of other sources as well.

A great piece of equipment
by Drew Campbell from United StatesThis is a great product at a good price. I used it as a preamp for an accoustic guitar at a gig last weekend. The sound was fantastic and plenty strong for the amplifier effects

Not a bad little mic pre
by Pablo Sk'Bano from Phx, AzThe clarity from this mic-pre is not bad at all. The XMAX mic-pre's are pretty clean for this price range. One little negative I noticed is that when recording vocals, I use a Akg C214 mic, the Vu met... read more [+]er does respond well and I get a signal overload in pro tools 8. its not a big issue I sent it back for a new one, thinking this issue was due to a defect. When I received the replacement, the same thing. Simple work around but I am happy and I'm going to replace the stock tube with an Russian made tube and see what I get. Don't hesitate to buy this mic-pre if you need to upgrade your front end on a budget, it will help your mic as well if your using a not so expensive one. close [-]

Not Bad....But Not Worth It
by Travis Jackson fromThrough my expierience the mic pre was too hot and hot little to no head room. To get a good signal you have to turn up the gain enough to get the needle in the "Clear" but by doing so you increase th... read more [+]e signal going to your AD Converter giving you distortion and unwanted noise. The workaround that i used was placing a -10dB to a -30dB pad on the ouput of the Presonus going to my AD Converter and it worked...sort of. if you are looking for something to get just to get better sound than just using an MBox or any other low end AD converter than by all means buy this pre cuz it will get the job done but if you take engineering seriously than change out the tube or buy a different Pre. close [-]
