A single channel of tube warmth for your recording studio. The TubePRE from PreSonus is possibly the best sounding tube preamp that can fit in one hand! Taking a simple is better approach, the TubePRE features a mic and instrument input, balanced and unbalanced output on the back panel and Gain and Drive controls, pad, rumble filter, phase reverse and phantom power buttons on the front panel! A backlit vintage VU meter rounds out this pint-sized powerhouse! Whether you're warming up your vocals, or recording your guitar or bass direct - the TubePRE has what it takes to be another PreSonus best seller!
The PreSonus TubePRE is equipped with both a balanced XLR input and 1/4" hi-Z input to accommodate mic- and instrument-level signals. In fact, many engineers have sung the praises of the TubePRE as a DI with bass guitar, and the Tube Drive control lets you dial in the perfect amount of grit and warmth. As a mic pre, source sounds come through loud and clear thanks to the low -98dB noise floor.
The TubePRE represents a stunning value in the world of mic/instrument preamps. Not only is it tube-driven, a great direct box, and quiet, but it's also equipped with necessary studio tools such as a phase inversion button, 10dB pad, phantom power, and an 80Hz low-cut filter. As an added bonus, there's a front-panel VU meter (who doesn't love VU meters!).
