Driven by a small preamp dual triode ECC83 (12AX7)
TL082 operational amplifier (not low noise)
a bunch of transistors and passive components.


Tested to pre-amplify a Fender Rhodes, the result is pretty grim
unpleasant background noise, the tube is useless
I tried to use a condenser microphone (AKG C535) with phantom power:
do not even think it is a real massacre.


Surprised by the overall quality I removed to perform some steps:
The tube is powered by a series of doublers Latour from the AC power supply
preamp result only 56 volts of high voltage!
12AX7 knowing that performs well with 300 volts and is saying!


Flee, this thing is useless!
those who claim to "warm sound" because it is a poor tube "made in China inside"
have never worked with real tube preamp.
Needless to replace the tube with a Telefunken or Siemens 50s
is to give jam to pigs ...

Very simple, you turn and it works.


Small preamp practice the lamp not live example for a low live in, as DI, but not for the studio, big lack of clarity, precision .... but for the price no complaints. Very good build quality.

Other preamp 30 to 150 € are not beauocup better.


Unbeatable for the price (but only for the price).

a good start

pre amp non rack lamp with adjustable input, gain, phase-20db. led a clip.
input / output jack or an XLR


very simple, clear manual, easy editing there's not much to tweak.


its own, the lamp does not hear and almost better because in this range made ... (Unless it is fun to saturate). So no coloration of sound in normal use.


Used for 1.5 years it has chandeliers, I Taté quite then some more expensive model of another brand that are often disappointing. In the range above must know what one is looking ... some preamp sound card is disappointing to the mp tube seems cleaner and does not add a dubious color. It's good for started, I had the chance to connect over good micro (AT33, u87 ...) and I was not disappointed, even when the microphone was "too good" for this pre amp.
Then when you want to search for a particular grain, color or simply refine their trimming, they move on.
Excellent value taken. this is one of the only shopping I started I did not regret ...
