The Presonus TubePre V2 takes the original TubePre and raises the bar on tube preamps. Like the original, the TubePre V2 is a fully professional tube preamp. The dual-servo gain stage allows you to boost the signal to smoking hot levels without significantly increasing the background noise. The discrete components and high-voltage operation offer a dynamic range and a level of detail not found in other single-channel tube preamps in its class.
The TubePre V2 offers a much wider sonic palette and a much more focused tube saturation than the original TubePre. The preamp has been upgraded to the PreSonus XMAX Class A solid state preamp, and the output has been fitted with a 12AX7 vacuum tube stage. The saturation control adds the colour to the sound from a gentle warmth to total fuzz.
The TubePre V2 provides all of the professional connections to integrate directly into your existing setup. Unbalanced 1/4-inch and balanced XLR connections on both inputs and outputs. It also features a high-pass filter, phantom power, polarity reverse and a backlit VU meter.
It also features a separate instrument input so it functions as a direct box for guitar and bass. Due to its small footprint, it can sit almost anywhere as well as being able to screw into a rack tray.
