Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Forget the noise-gate... but as a mic pre-amp this thing sounds great."
Sound: I lucked out when I bought this over a year ago because I knew little about mic pre-amps and basically just bought the first thing I found. I've since tried others and keep coming back to the Rolls. I agree with other reviews that say that the noise-gate is useless, but if you just need a solid pre-amp with a little compression, this is a perfect choice. Feature: Came with AC/PS Ease of Use: It's not intuitive to get dialed in (it's hard to even tell which knob does what from the front panel markings) but just fiddle with the controls until you find the sweet spot. I find it works best with just a little less than -10 dB of compression. Quality: Solid metal case, and no problems in over a year. The knobs are exposed so I wouldn't want to drop it. Value: This thing is cheap but sounds great! The Wow Factor: There's nothing sexy about this product, but people with much more expensive equipment than mine ask me what kind of mic I'm using (it's an $80-100 AT-2020). It sounds great through the Rolls pre-amp with just a little compression dialed in.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Rolls CL151 GLC Mic Preamp"
Overall: The Input, Compressor, and Output control section works well for the low price. But as far as the "Gate" section is concerned - if you're looking for an inexpensive way to "gate" or turn your mic off to avoid picking up any room ambient noise during those quiet moments in your recording - this is not what you want. The Gate does work, but not smoothly and regularly. The best way to describe that feature is, in the words of Colonel Potter - it's about as smooth as "a pig on stilts". But for the price, it is also a very good mic preamp with it's XLR connector, including Phantom Power supply.

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.
