PreSonus BlueTube DP 2-Channel Tube Mic Preamp

PreSonus BlueTube DP 2-Channel Tube Mic Preamp

Thanks to its two combo mic/instrument inputs, the BlueTube DP is an excellent choice for guitars and basses, as well as for vocals. With balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" main outputs, it serves as a dandy direct box (DI). If you're a singer-songwriter who performs solo with a guitar, you can run your vocal through one channel and your guitar through the other, then feed both to the house system-no guitar amp needed. Try the BlueTube DP as a front end for your DAW, as well; sure, your recording interface might already include preamps, but few of them give you both tube and solid-state operation.
