    anyone use these for bass? they seem tiny and supposedly high quality. I know there arent tone knobs, but a lot of guys say they run things flat anyway...

    Do you mean the Presonus "Tube" Pre?

    That one is okay, but nothing to write home about. I bought one of those, and an ART "Tube" MP for mic-pres, and wasn't happy with either one.

    I loaned my Presonus to a neighbor, and haven't asked him to return it. I still use the ART for my basses; with the peak-limiter turned on, it sounds decent.

    Add the usual disclaimers... just my opinon, results may vary...

    I have a digitube, I use it to add some grit to vocals. I guess I could use it as a pre to a power amp if I wanted. It's OK.
