Gearank Recommendation

The ART Tube MP was on our recommended list for Microphone Preamps when we published the first edition in February 2017 and it remained there until it was out-ranked in February 2018.


The Daking Mic Pre One is a streamlined one channel mic preamplifier that’s described as having boutique level quality at a more accessible price point.

It features a Class A amplifier with discrete transistor based circuitry with transformer balanced input and electronically balanced output.

Controls include variable high-pass filter, phantom power switch, 20dB pad, phase and gain, all of which are housed in a space saving form factor.
