MicTube Duo

Stereo Tube Microphone Preamplifier


Natural tube warmth for any mics or instruments.

Add warm, vintage tone to any pair of mics or instruments with the MicTube Duo preamplifier. Ideal for any recording or live setup, the 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 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 of course, the MicTube Duo provides +48 volt phantom power for condenser microphones.

In additional to standard 3-pin XLR jacks for microphones, the 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.
