Product Description

Like the original TubePre, the Presonus TubePre Version 2 Microphone Preamp is a fully professional tube preamp, with a dual-servo (no capacitors) gain stage that lets you boost the program signal to smoking hot levels without significantly increasing the background noise. Discrete components and high-voltage operation offer dynamic range and detail not found in other single-channel tube preamps in its class.

The TubePre V2 provides an even wider palette of sound options and a much more focused tube saturation than the original TubePre. It has been upgraded to employ PreSonus' popular XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, which is followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. Twist the TubePre V2 Drive saturation control to add the color that only a hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube can deliver, from gentle warmth to total fuzz.

Housed in a rugged case, the TubePre V2 rear panel sports separate unbalanced, 1/4 inch instrument and balanced, XLR mic inputs and unbalanced 1/4 inch and balanced XLR line outputs. We've included all of the extras you need for professional operation including a high-pass filter, phantom power for condenser mics, polarity reverse switch and a backlit VU meter.

Thanks to the V2's separate instrument and mic inputs, it also serves as a dynamite direct box (DI) for guitars and basses. It's small enough to carry almost anywhere, although you also can screw-mount it to a standard rack tray. The Presonus TubePre Version 2 Microphone is more than a mic preamp, and with PreSonus, big sound doesn’t have to cost big bucks.
