Product Description

The Joemeek threeQ is like having one channel of a professional recording studio in a small box. It takes a microphone or instrument, amplifies it, compresses and equalizes it so it's ready to be recorded. Simple to use, yet extremely powerful, the threeQ will bring out the best in any microphone or instrument and give the gloss of a professional studio production to all your performances.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. Joe Meek ThreeQ Pre Customer Review
Sound: Great product, very clean, simple to use and effective. Quick setup and been impressed with it each time I've used it. Feature: Nothing more I really could ask for. Ease of Use: Compression is a little tricky to get dialed in just right but with a little experimenting it's useful. The rest is quick and easy to get a good sound. Quality: Seems very made and strong, no problems yet and as of this review, have had about a month. Value: I feel like the tools you get, the sound and the price, it's a very good value. Manufacturer Support: I've emailed with questions and gotten responses back within hours. Great support for a great product. The Wow Factor: Very important part of my signal chain. Overall: Very satisfied.
Style of Music: Bluegrass

Joe Meek ThreeQ Pre Customer Review
Sound: the sound is warm enough, there's s small amount of coloration at low mid area. It's not a high end product but results are very stable. If it had much open sound i'd appreciate more, but also the money paid for is totally worth it. Feature: it has phantom power, compressor and 3 band eq. I find the comp a bit strong, it's best to use it at small amounts. It has a fixed ratio. The eq is pretty nice, even though it does not have q selection but never needed. Quite enough for determining the general sound. With a nice mic, no hesitation. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, no need to diving into manual. Quality: this unit is metal covered, quality knobs and leds. Small sized and light weighted, so easy to carry. Value: according to money paid, this unit totally worths. Especially if you also have a transparent preamp, this may be a nice alternative coloring preamp. Manufacturer Support: never needed a support Overall: Even if it is not "the best" , it gives a nice sound to your mixes. I strongly recomend for beginners. The price is acceptable for it's sound and quality. Even if you buy a better preamp in the future, you'd still want to keep this.
Style of Music: easy listening, pop

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.
