The Tube MP is the world's most popular external tube microphone preamp. Whether you're working with a digital, computer or analog recording system, the Tube MP's TEC award nominated design will allow you to obtain professional recording studio results at a fraction of the cost of comparable equipment. While its primary application is to be used with a microphone, the Tube MP is an exceptional direct box - impedance matching, amplifying and improving the sound of any instrument plugged into it.

The Tube MP offers superior performance and sound quality to the "on-board" preamps found in today's low-cost mixers and multi-trackers. Its sound has been consistently favored over other products costing upwards to ten-times its price. Professional quality sound combined with professional features like: a hand-selected 12AX7a tube, phantom power and phase reverse are what have made the Tube MP a staple in thousands of studios worldwide. For a minimal investment, a Tube MP can provide the single largest improvement to the sound of your studio.

I own an MP Studio and MP, I bought both used, the MP Studio had a buzz, but solved the problem by upgrading the Tube. I'll eventually do the same with my MP, I use them for Acoustic Guitar/Electric Guitar/Bass and Harp Mic, overall a great way to get a cheap tube sound and warm things.

I bought this to use as a preamp / di for harmonica. It warms up the tone nicely either going directly into a PA or as a preamp into a tube amp. It can also be overdriven for a nice Chicago tone into the PA. Wish it had tone controls integrated other than that a very good preamp/ di for the price.

Does impart some tube character, but it's hardly transparent and the gain boost circuit is buzzy. Wouldn't use it on a lead part. A cheap flavour additive.
