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!

Comments about Electro-Harmonix 12AY7 Tube Microphone Preamp:

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

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.
