General Your general opinion of this product. Pretty good piece to add to a digital system. Tube warmth/saturation helps certain tracks cut through the mix easily.
Review of ART Pro Channel Tube Mic Pre

Your general opinion of this product. I'm really happy with it. I bought it to serve one of two purposes, depending on how it sounded when I tried it out. I tried it as the front end for my live bass rig. Bass plugged directly into the ART, then out to a power amp. It sounded great--lots of gain and I liked the comp and EQ--but as mentioned above, its many front panel details made me think it'd be more useful in the studio. Then I tried it as the preAmp on a specialty mic--the Meridian acoustic guitar mic. That mic is really really bright, but useful because it's a system that clips right onto the body of your guitar. Anyway, the features of the ART were perfect for tweaking the tone of the Meridian and getting a warmer acoustic guitar signal to "tape". Sitting on a shelf on my mixing console, the ART's detailed front panel was easier to manage--once the settings on the ART were dialed in then I leave it alon, and it sits there, ready to use day after day with the Meridian.
