ART TPS - Reviews Art TPS

I was looking for a relatively inexpensive tube preamp, and found this one for $250 CAD at my local music store.

I love the v3 feature - variable valve voicing - because it makes it easy to get set up fast. The unit lets you select what you are recording from the rotary selector and how much tube sound you want. Very nice feature.

I don't like having no TRS input on the back... it has a trs/xlr combo on the front for input but only xlr input on the back. Makes it hard to use with my patchbay.

Also.... it's purple....

This thing is heavy! Although most tube stuff is. Luckily the rack ears are strong enough to hold it up without rear support. I have some other ART gear and all of it has been reliable.

Quality unit, worth the money.
