It’s 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 ART Tube MP a staple in thousands of studios worldwide.

I'm happy with my purchase


So far so good. I am new to using preamps but it seems easy enough for me to use and it definitely has changed how my vocals sound. I bought it since it's compatible to the SM58 microphone. I haven't tried the Blue microphone on it yet though.



Fat Sound


"I recently purchased the ART Tube MP [...]. My primary purpose was to input my bass signal to my PC sound card for recording. I instantly got the rich, warm, deep, fat sound that I have been seeking. I play reggae dub (classic Sly & Robbie style), after 5 minutes of playing I knew this hidden jem was the piece I've been missing. As a DI for a bass I highly recommend it, the ART tube MP gives me the EXACT sound I want. If you want a truly awesome dub sound, without the ""bells & whistles"" this is all you need. eDub Indianapolis"
