Hiss issues

By jaa

from Washington DC

Comments about Electro-Harmonix 12AY7 Tube Microphone Preamp:

I bought one but it was noisy (hiss), so I exchanged it. Other reviewers had said it was quiet, so that is what I was expecting. Well, the second one was just the same! I gave up and got a refund. I tried this pre-amp with two different condenser mics, one dynamic mic, a DI, and also with a second pre-amp (different brand) in front. Couldn't get the sound I was looking for, without a lot of noise. That said, if you can ignore the noise, the sound character is pretty good. A 1/4" TRS input would be a good thing to have --only XLR in this model. Maybe a bad lot? Or, maybe it didn't like my board. Whatever, it didn't work for me.

I was told that this little box would do the trick and so far, I havent had any problems with it. It may not be the best pre-amp but it curtainly went beyond my expectations. Its a good overall product, Pick it up

I love it!

By Vee

from Chicago

Comments about Electro-Harmonix 12AY7 Tube Microphone Preamp:

I did quite a bit of research on the internet in search of a pre that offered the best perfomance to value. You can't go wrong with this pre. It sounds very warm and it's very quiet. Even my cheap mics sound expensive!
