A Special Treat for Your Ribbons and Dynamic Mics!

The True Systems pT2-500D 500 series microphone preamplifier and DI is designed specifically for dynamic and ribbon mics, with an optimized input that allows your low-output mics to truly sing. It's based on the TEC Award-nominated pT2-500 preamp (prized for its fast response and detailed transparency), but the pT2-500D is optimized for dynamic mics. There is no phantom power circuit, preventing damage to sensitive ribbon mics while saving on cost. It provides more gain (76dB), higher input impedance, and a unique low frequency adjust control that helps you fine tune your low end. True Systems has earned their place in pro-studios worldwide, so everyone at Sweetwater is sure the pT2-500D will make some amazing recordings!

True Systems pT2-500D 500 Series Microphone Preamplifier and DI at a Glance:
  • Powerful and precise gain range
  • Optimized for dynamic and ribbon mics
  • Instrument DI with Thru output
Powerful and precise gain range

The True Systems pT2-500D serves up to 76dB of gain, courtesy of a detented gain control. The pT2-500D's formidable gain range is perfect for low-output dynamic mics, and the detented control makes it easy to recall gain settings anytime.

Optimized for dynamic and ribbon mics

True Systems equipped the pT2-500D with a high-impedance input that's perfect for dynamic and ribbon mics. You'll be able to capture the delicate details that your ribbon mic picks up, but other mic preamps don't. And since dynamics and ribbons don't need phantom power, you won't even find it on the pT2-500D.

Instrument DI with Thru output

First off, you'll love the sound of the True Systems pT2-500D as an instrument DI. It's detailed, has plenty of gain, and the low frequency contour control is incredible on acoustic instruments and bass guitar. The best part is the pT2-500D is ultra-flexible thanks to the DI's Thru output: connect this to an amp, and you can record the amp through a different mic/preamp combination while you record the DI signal from the pT2-500D!

True Systems pT2-500D 500 Series Microphone Preamplifier and DI Features:
  • True Systems transparency and quality in the form of a powerful mic preamp and DI, optimized for dynamic mics and ribbons
  • Convenient 500 series format makes this great for mobile recording
  • Low frequency contour lets you shape bass frequencies more flexibly than traditional EQ
  • Detented gain knobs for easy recall
  • Up to 76dB of gain, great for low-output mics!
  • DI with Thru output lets you split your DI signal to an amplifier for studio flexibility
Give some love to your dynamic and ribbon mics with the True Systems pT2-500D 500 series microphone preamplifier and DI!
