    Amazing preamp

    I put it to work as soon as I received it! Tons of headroom extremely quiet. Used on drums primarily but sounds great on vocals. Compares favorably to the API 512C and is a viable alternative. BUY IT!

    Ultra quiet, excellent sensitivity with 150 ohm mic sources. Extremely High gain. THIS ONE IS A WINNER ON ALL FRONTS! FYI: Tested with AKG C3000 (blackface version with 414 capsule)
