PreSonus has been designing preamplifiers for a long time, and they always focus on quality first.  When they decided to upgrade their popular TubePre, they focused on improving an already high-quality sound, without raising the price.  Like the original TubePre, the new version is a fully professional tube preamp, with a dual servo (no capacitors) gain stage that lets you boost the program signal to smoking hot levels without significantly increasing the background noise.  Discrete components and high voltage operation offer dynamic range and detail not found in other single channel tube preamps in its class.

The TubePre v2 has been upgraded from the original TubePre to employ PreSonus' popular XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, which is followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage.  Twist the TubePre V2 Drive Saturation control to add the 'color" that only a hand selected 12AX7 vacuum tube can deliver from gently warmth to total fuzz.

Thanks to its separate instrument and mic inputs, it also serves as a dynamite direct box (DI) for guitars and basses.  Its small enough to carry almost anywhere, although you can screw mount it to a standard rack tray.
