The Acme Audio MTP-66 Motown Tube Preamp is the ultimate mic pre-tube amp on the market. The tone is deeply blissful, incredibly smooth, detailed, and three dimensional.

The Acme Audio MTP-66 Motown Tube Preamp promises to become THE preamp for recording bass guitar, vocals, kick and snare drums. Truly, the feature pre-amp of any recording studio. The MTP-66 was created and is still built in Detroit, MI. The original prototype was thoroughly tested in professional working studios by engineers for years before being brought to market. That being said it was created to be useful and to be used. Like all of the products produced by Acme Audio - full thought of who is using the gear is considered in ever aspect. They don't have a huge product line, but what they do offer is well worth checking out. It's a great line and one of our favorites here at Front End Audio!

The MTP-66 is the newest device in the series of Acme Audio Manufacturing’s line of faithful recreations of legendary Motown gear. This single-channel lunchbox preamp has been exactingly reborn using the original 1966 engineering schematics, and features an all-tube signal path, with hand selected tubes that drive a Cinamag output transformer. Besides being an instrument-to-line-level all-tube preamp, Acme Audio has added a microphone amp section that is also based on Motown Engineering's original designs, featuring a fixed gain pentode with the Acme Audio/Triad input transformer. Other key features include adjustable input and output controls (not made available on the original,) giving you the ability to adjust your sound to the desired amount of drive and compression.

    Versatile preamp with character

    The Acme Audio MTP-66 Motown Tube Preamp is built like a tank with a nod to classic aesthetics. The tonal quality is warm, rich, and nuanced, providing great authentic character to your recordings. It’s very flexible, handling anything from vocals, to guitars, basses, and even keyboards. While not the quietest preamp, or the cheapest, it sounds incredible and is very easy to use.
