Product Description

Add warm, vintage tone to any pair of mics or instruments with the Alesis MicTube Duo preamplifier. Ideal for any recording or live setup, the Alesis MicTube Duo features an easy-to-use control layout and one of the most classic sounding, lowest-noise vacuum tubes: the legendary 12AX7. Aside from the tube, the MicTube Duo features a minimized circuit path, so it preserves the essence of the signal coming from the microphone faithfully.

The Alesis MicTube raises the level of any mic up to line level, adding as much or as little of the tube's signature sound as you like. You'll find a -20 dB pad switch for mics with hotter outputs or louder sound sources. Phase reverse switches help you optimize multi-mic setups, and 80 Hz high-pass filters help cut bass, handling, and wind noise. And of course, the MicTube Duo provides +48 volt phantom power for condenser microphones.

In additional to standard 3-pin XLR jacks for microphones, the Alesis MicTube Duo also gives you 1/4", high-impedance DI jacks for plugging in guitars and basses. Separate Gain and Drive ("vintage") controls allow you to dial in the perfect blend of level and tone, and a LED meter trees are perfect for keeping an eye on levels. Professional XLR and 1/4" outputs complete the professional package.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "NICE!!"
Sound: Nice tube........warm and upfront Feature: Pros: Led's are cool for monitoring, it has nice sturdy knobs, metal casing, tube gets hot fast Con: Gets almost too hot to touch. Be sure to power down when not in use....won't hurt if you leave on though Ease of Use: Plug in your mic and /or instruments then power on........Simple OhYeah! Be sure to turn your knobs down before powering up Quality: well built Value: Worth the price considering the tube Manufacturer Support: No The Wow Factor: No wow factor for me....just decided to try these guys out Overall: Great entry preamp............if your looking for a little more with your preamp then this would be a great choice. It has led meter for both inputs and works good to plug your guitar also. Gives you the options of 1 or 2 mics and / or 1 mic and 1 instrument. The tube gets pretty hot and creates nice punchy warm sound!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A Dream Come True!"
Overall: First of all, I had an Alesis XT-20 (Tape version) old school, but most of these are in use today in recording studios. I plugged into direct input (bi-passed the mixer for hearing the sound) WOW! I don't need the mixer. The sound is so smooth, silky and warm. I just can't believe this item exist. I'm going to buy 3 more!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
