The Best of Both Worlds!

PreSonus combined the best of both worlds in the TubePre V2 microphone preamplifier. You have a choice between a pristine solid-state circuit offering clarity and detail, and you can then blend in as much tube warmth as you need. Harsh voices and instruments that need taming can benefit from the warm, smooth and almost 3D sound of a true vacuum tube. This extremely versatile preamp gives you the best of both worlds - the clarity and transparency of solid-state combined with the warm and smooth sound of tubes.

The PreSonus TubePre V2 at a Glance:
  • Clear and detailed sound
  • Warm and smooth tubey goodness
  • Unbelievable value, packed with pro features
Clear and detailed sound
The TubePre v2 offers PreSonus' top-of-the-line Class A XMAX mic preamplifier with 80 dB of variable gain. The XMAX preamp gives you all the benefits of a high-quality solid-state preamp - clarity, definition and extremely accurate.

Warm and smooth tubey goodness
Vacuum tubes are coveted for their warm, smooth and almost 3D tonal qualities. Ever wonder why an old tube amp sounds so good? Tubes! The tube path of the TubePre V2 features a 12AX7 tube that operates on voltages double that of other preamplifiers in its class, producing lots of headroom and big tone. This is perfect for taming harsh vocals and instruments onstage or in the studio.

Unbelievable value, with pro features
You get all the features you expect in a professional-grade preamp: 48V phantom power, an 80 Hz high-pass filter, -20 dB pad to control hot input signals, and a polarity-reverse switch. The TubePre V2 has an illuminated VU meter so you can visually monitor your input levels. To say that is preamp is a value is an understatement, this is one the most versatile preamps around!
