Good for Starters
This pre-amp will be ideal for a person that doesnt know much about pre-amps. But for me I kind of out grew this pre-amp plus the tube started shorting out so I tried to replace it and it hasnt been right ever since. Its a decent pre-amp for a average home studio but after a year or so of using it you will want to just spend the money for a quality pre-amp. Sometimes (most times) paying for quality is better than being frugal.
