    ART TUBE MP Studio V3 Mic Preamp... how well does it work for bass guitar? I think i read that you can adjust the output level so perhaps it would be suitable for driving a poweramp, which is an option I may choose.

    How warm / tube sounding are they?

    I tried one last year with a solid state head. It warmed up the sound alittle, but it added more hiss to the sound than it was worth.

    unless your pwr amp requires huge gain to develop it's full power, the Tube MP should do fine. Using a Tube MP as an effect to 'warm up' a solid state head is wishful thinking though. Very clean and the distortion quality if it is wildly over driven is not real pleasant. This is a mic pre, right ?
    On the used market these are brinbging like $30 bucks ? Seems like an inexpensive sort of experiment to me ...
