Improving on a Great Sound
At PreSonus, we&rsquo,ve been designing preamps for a long time,
and we always focus on audio quality first. So when we decided to upgrade our popular TubePre V2, we focused on improving an already high-quality sound&mdash,without jacking up the price. Like the original TubePre, the new version is a fully professional tube preamp, with a dual-servo (no capacitors) gain stage that lets you boost the program signal to smoking hot levels without significantly increasing the background noise. Discrete components and high-voltage operation offer dynamic range and detail not found in other single-channel tube preamps in its class.
But the TubePre V2 provides an even wider palette of sound options, and a much more focused tube saturation, than the original TubePre. It has been upgraded to employ PreSonus&rsquo, popular XMAX&trade, Class A solid-state preamp, which is followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. Twist the TubePre V2 Drive saturation control to add the &ldquo,color that only a hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube can deliver &mdash, from gentle warmth to total fuzz.

Versatile and Feature-Rich
Housed in a rugged case, the TubePre V2 rear panel sports separate unbalanced, 14, instrument and balanced, XLR mic inputs and unbalanced 14, and balanced XLR line outputs. We&rsquo,ve included all of the extras you need for professional operation including a high-pass filter, phantom power for condenser mics, polarity reverse switch, and a backlit VU meter.
The TubePre V2 is more than a mic preamp, though.
Thanks to its separate instrument and mic inputs, it also serves as a dynamite direct box (DI) for guitars and basses. And it&rsquo,s small enough to carry almost anywhere, although you also can screw-mount it to a standard rack tray.
So if you are a fan of our original TubePre, you&rsquo,re going to love the improved TubePre V2. And if you are checking out the TubePre for the first time, your ears are in for a real treat. Then check out the amazing low price&mdash,but sit down first because you&rsquo,re in for a shock. Because with PreSonus, big sound does not have to cost big bucks.
