ART MP Tube Mic Preamp 127
ART MP Tube Mic Preamp 127 at DC Music. Want to know why the Tube MP is the world's most popular external tube microphone preamp? Maybe because it costs only a fraction of what you'd spend on comparable equipment, making it a great first mic preamp for a home studio. But wait, home studios aren't the only reason the Tube MP is #1. More than that, the Tube MP isn't just a mic preamp -- musicians and engineers are using this versatile little box for all sorts of applications. But more on that in a minute. Let's get into what the ART Tube MP is all about. First, a little refresher: A mic pre is an amplifier which boosts the low signal level of a microphone up to a line level signal. On a mixer, each input channel which accepts mic-level inputs will usually have a mic preamp onboard. But unless you spent a whole lot on your mixer, those preamps probably aren't that great. And if you are recording with a computer soundcard you may not have a preamp at all. Not to worry with the ART MP.
