    Recived my new toy today, a small tube preamp called MIC200 by Behringer, and it sounds perfect! Creamy nice tube warmth with distortion if you wish, just crank the gain knob. Tomorrow i will change the stock tube to a JJ electronic 12AX7 and see what happens! :hyper:

    That thing looks pretty cool for $49.00. Let us know what you think of the JJ tube when you drop it in.
    Hope I spelled everything correctly. :eyebrow:

    From what I understand, or at least what I've seen, is that that with Behringer tube products, the tube barely does anything. Some have little yellowish/orangish lights behind the tube to make it look like it's glowing when it just marginally useful in the circuit, pretty goofy.


    NOTE: I'm not a Behringer hater, they make a very inexpensive product that works perfectly fine for some people.

    Changed the tube today, was a bit tricky to change it. Soundwise i noticed with the change that the sound had much more clarity and it still produces that warmth i mentioned earlier. Doesn't distort very easily now against the Behringer tube and the distortion is much more "professional" sounding. With the first tube it was a bit mud/dull tone but now everything has become clear without being sterile sounding.

    The box itself is of very good quality and the knobs sits tight and good. I love this box! :hyper: :bassist:

    I used the Mic 100 for a while,for the priceit's a great way to add definition to the sound.
    and can also drive a poweramp.

    Congrats, I'm in the stage use my ISP Decimator, to see how much noise I need to filter off. Does it get quieter with the tube swap?

    A while back I A-B'ed the Behringer tube preamp and the Art TubeMP, the Art sounded much better with bass--fatter, richer. I later switched the tube in the MP for the JJ, and it got even better--warmer and more compressed.

    this might be a dumb question.. but can you overdrive and/or drive a power amp with that?

    ...im always on the look for a cheap backup incase something goes wrong with my rig

    Yes, you can drive a power amp nicely, but you'll probably want some kind of EQ. You can overdrive the preamp, but wouldn't be my choice of overdrive.
