You can boost the signal until it starts to distort, and change the EQ. Compact and transportable unit not for rack. I use it with a Bass V-amp , a powerblock and a Vox 2 x 12" speaker cabinet. I would have liked more precise descriptions of the limiter section, the low-pass frequencies, the modeling, and the amplifier stages. In which stage the tube actually works, etc. Sometimes the selector generates some noise when manipulated.

By Paul White A small preamp with a deceptively classy sound. Housed in a folded steel case, the MIC has both a balanced XLR mic input and an unbalanced, high-impedance instrument input to suit guitars and basses with either passive or active pickups. Its mic amp stage is based around a low-noise amplifier chip and the 12AX7 dual-triode tube follows this to add a little warmth. There are also two controls with traditional chicken-head pointer knobs. One of these sets the amp gain over the range dB, while the Output control provides a means of matching the output level to whatever the preamp is feeding.
A further green LED shows that the unit is powered up. This comes between the preamp Gain and Output controls, so using a high Gain setting and a low Output hits the limiter hard, while using a lower Gain setting and a higher Output setting has the same effects as raising the limiter threshold.
Indeed, this pumps quite musically and could be nice as an effect on guitar or bass. Small Is Beautiful? At the top of the tree are the really esoteric preamps which, in combination with a good mic, sound silky, smooth, pristine and generally wonderful.
They also tend to cost several hundred pounds per channel! A decent phantom-powered mic preamp at this UK price would already be good value, but one with a tube and a limiter as well is just silly.
