Get Your Hands On The Widest Variety Of Tone Shaping Capabilities With The PreSonus BlueTube DP V2 Mic/Instrument Tube Preamp

The Presonus BlueTube DP V2 Mic/Instrument Tube Preamp is a dual-personality preamp with an amazing variety of tones, compact, affordable, and capable of a stunningly wide range of tones. The Preamp offers two independent channels, each with an XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. A Tube Drive control provides a wide range of sounds: When clicked off, you're using the solid-state preamp for quiet, transparent amplification; when engaged, your signals flow through the tube preamp, and you can achieve anything from gentle warmth to edgy distortion. Equipped with instrument and mic inputs and built tough for serious gigging, the BlueTube DP V2 is a great choice for guitarists, bassists, singer/songwriters, and more.

The BlueTube DP V2 offers far and away the widest variety of tone-shaping capabilities of any preamp in its class. Housed in a rugged, half-rackspace case that is built to travel, its rear panel sports two combo mic/instrument inputs and unbalanced ¼” and balanced XLR line outputs. With two dual-path channels and this complement of I/O, you can use it as a preamp and as a direct box (DI) for guitars and basses. Singer-songwriters can run their vocal through one channel and their guitar through the other, feeding both to the P.A.-no guitar amp needed. And we didn't forget the extras: an 80 Hz highpass filter, phantom power, a -20 dB pad to control hot input signals, polarity reverse, and a backlit VU meter. Yet the BlueTube DP V2 is small enough to carry in a gig bag-or screw-mount it to a standard rack tray.
