not bad for the price

By 

from skopje, macedonia

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

yeah, I know. it's a cheap preamp. I ' ve changed the tube. it sounded dirty. the new one, tung sol gold is smoother. I use it with my wireles shure sm86 before behringer shark fb filter and the mixer. if you take care of the gain/output level it can be a good boy. I' ve tried different settings live and it sounds best with the gain at 8-9 o'clock and output at 10-11. it sounds bold. the limiter is not usable for the mic. I look at the led lights, until -6 to 0db (the green field) its smooth and full. it's good for live guitar or bass also. gives some meat. I am not sure about studio. probably you'll need smt more expensive.

This is ok

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

The sound of the unit is good. Not as smooth and warm as higher dollar preamps, but better then the ART version. (I have both) I bought this several weeks ago. It worked great for about two hours, then started to make a hiss. For the price I guess it is ok. Maybe better for a guitar pre than a vocal pre. If I had it to do over, I would save the money and buy a better unit.

Does it's job without problems

By 

from Dingmans Ferry, PA

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

I bought this a few weeks ago after getting a new Audio Technica condenser mic. I was very happy when I got it, and now I use it to power my mic whenever I need to... no problems. It starts up nice and fast, gives me some nice controls over the gain and output... theres no need to go and buy something extremely expensive if you are just recording for fun or if you aren't the owner of a huge studio, this does the job for a very inexpensive price.

Good Sound Great Price

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

Owning my own home studio, I needed something topump up the volume on my mics. Everything elsewas too expensive for just the pre-amp that I needed. I bought my first Behringer Mic Pre-Ampand was impressed with the low noise on theoutput. It also works great with othermono sources. I've just recently purchased my4th Ultragain Mic 100. Gotta love the price too!

A good tube preamp

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

This little mic preamp is great for helping the signal on almost any clean input including mics. The 12AX7 inside is a Behringer Prestige tube which is not a bad tube. I would recommend leaving it as it is for almost every condition. It is clean and less prone to overdrive than some of the other 12AX7's on the market. If you are actually looking for the high gain tube sound, you can get that from this same unit as well by swapping in a nice high gain preamp tube. I tried one of my Mesa USA tubes in there and it responds well although keep in mind that the unit is fairly cold and designed for clarity.

A+

By 

from USA

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

Although on the bottom end of the preamp market, the Ultragain pro really impressed me. Even when stretched, noise is low, and the Valve sound really does add an extra warmth to the signal.Highly recommended.

Good investment

By 

from Baton Rouge, LA

Comments about Behringer TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC100 Preamp:

Being that I'm relatively new to the home based studio world, I can't compare the Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100 to any other mic-preamps, but I can say that the quality is amazing. I upgraded from doing my vocals on a basic soundblaster soundcard to an Audiophile 2496 which when paired with the MIC100, gives a clean, warm, professional sound. The Behringer MIC100 is worth every dollar of its cost, plus some.
