Single-channel precision microphone/instrument preamplifier with direct input and thru.

API 500 series-compatible, the True Systems PT2-500 Dynamic Mic and Instrument preamp is an an amazingly open, three-dimentional, harmonically rich-sounding preamp designed for use with tube, ribbon, and dynamic mics - any non-phantom powered mics - as well as bass and all other low level instrument direct-in applications.

Incorporating True Systems new-technology Type 2 circuit design, Type 2 provides the traditional ultra-resolution musicality of True System's original design preamps, but adds serious analog depth and warmth. In short: It sounds BIG! The new DI circuit calms piezo transducers and provides a THRU jack for easier re-amping and multi-effects. 70dB of gain, high-headroom, low-noise, amazing sonics. If you haven’t heard TRUE preamps before, you might want to start here!

*Not for use with phantom-powered microphones - dynamic, ribbon, and tube mics only.
