Presonus TubePre v2 Tube Preamplifier DI Box
PreSonus’ TubePre V2 is a single-channel mic preamp that also doubles as a DI. Powered by a 12AX7 dual-servo vacuum tube in its output stage, it allows users to add some tube warmth to the signal that comes in through its XMAX Class A preamp input stage. If your mic requires phantom power, the V2 has you covered via a switchable 48V phantom power setting. A separate hi-Z instrument input lets you plug your guitar or bas directly into the unit. An 80Hz high pass filter gives you greater control over the frequency of your sound, allowing you to roll off any unwanted low frequencies. The V2’s backlit VU meter features a LED clip indicator so you can always be aware of how hot your signal is coming in.
