Ever the do-it-yourself creative type, I recently built more top-notch microphone preamps for my studio. This is a matched stereo pair of Class A tube preamps. Depending on the gain settings they go from clean and warm to highly colored and a little gritty. They will be a useful addition to the studio, and because of the tubes they double as a little space heater too. These kits are from Scott Hampton at Hamptone.
