It's what's in the specs.
04.02.2017
Perfect work, good volume without distortion.

The tube inside is Chinese, but for microphones it's not the best but it does the job, in my case I did not buy it for working with microphones.

I am going to tell you a secret, I bought to put on my Pedalboard Guitar, I changed the tube for a Tube Amp Doctor RT080 7025 WA sounds smooth top, full gain, medium fat, tight under my Stratocaster looks like it speaks gorgeous natural harmonicas, my ESP EC was charming.
In the signal chain before the distortion sounds crystal clear and does not need to play with the maximum volume of the guitar, at the end of the signal chain the reverberation, echo, modulation, delays sounds 1000% better crystalline sound and times I listened,

But taste is personal, for me it sounds great, and for the price of course why not test.

Very good tube preamp
Matja?, 03.07.2014
At the time I was buying this preamp (4 years ago), I was looking for simple preamp with a tube. Since then, I was using ART Tube MP in many different settings. I am going to explain few of my common setups.

Preamp for passive pickup instrument:

I own few passive pickup instruments. As they need to have a preamp anyway, using tube preamp gives them a bit warmer sound. In that setting, if you raise output gain with slightly lowering input gain, you get a very nice warm drive effect that I really like (if not used excessively).

Preamp for vocals (used on microphone):

Some vocalists like a worm effect that you get if you use this product with their microphone before receiving the signal to your audio interface/mixing device. I know that it can be done digitally, but you cannot beat the real thing.

Preamp for condenser microphones:

As condenser microphones tend to sound dry, I like to use them in combination with ART Tube, as this gives a nice warmth to output sound. (ART Tube have phantom power option for input devices, so this is indeed possible).

Active DI-box:
You can use ART Tube as an active DI-box.

Pros:
ART Tube is very simple to use. It does its job great and I never had any problems with operating it. I am still using my first amp (4 years) and it is not hard to replace it, after the tube dies. It can power phantom powered mics.
It is also not expensive to afford.

Cons:
The device is not packed with features, and as with all tube devices, you need to always handle it with great care.

Conclusion:
ART Tube is a simple device, and can be used in many situations. I am very satisfied with the product and would recommend it.
