Microphones are sensitive pieces of equipment, which means that the signals they produce aren't always powerful enough to drive recording and amplification equipment. That's just a fact of life based on the way they work, and there's a simple solution: microphone preamps. These can take any microphone signal and give it a line-level boost, which makes them important parts of virtually every pro audio setup.

One of the first things to think about when you're looking for a microphone preamp is what sort of mics you'll be using with it. For example, condenser microphones usually require a source of phantom power. That narrows down your options to preamps that can provide it. Dynamic microphones, on the other hand, produce a weaker signal than condensers. So, for your dynamic mics, a preamp with high gain and low noise is essential. On top of that, keep an eye on the tonal character of the preamp: it can really go a long way to making the sound from the mic warmer or clearer. If you're looking for a high-performance rack-mounted microphone preamp to install in your studio or road case, take a look at the ART ProMPA II for starters. It's surprisingly easy to use for its powerful feature set, delivering rich tube sound paired with cutting-edge tech that supports Mid-Side stereo recording.

Maybe you'd rather experience the sound of a classic? If so, check out the Universal Audio UA-S610. It's based on the legendary Putnam 610 console, a favorite of artists from Sinatra to Van Halen. Developing your skills as a sound technician, recording engineer or performer is definitely step one to getting the best results - but step 2 is having pro audio equipment that can keep up with your talent. Microphone preamps are a crucial part of that, and they're a key ingredient to getting the most out of your mics.
