    I had been interested in this one for a long time, but I can just run tubes on any old MIC.;

    You know how it goes - a dozen other things get bought
    thats a interesting DIY, I think it'd be fun and not take up too much room.

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-HG

    haha Ya, some will run through a dozen preamps and might of assembled a tube MIC instead. Ya, I still look, but I have a hard time seeing the big difference of a tube in the MIC vs tube in the amp. We have quiet components compared to the day of those early Telefunken components

    well the tubes still in the electronic chain isnt it?
    though LEo Fender spent his whole life trying to make the tube remain clean where it wasnt Hendrix's goal at all.
    the ART MPA was a nice tube entry level thing.
    someone said they bought the tube mics and it wasnt so huge a difference than the FET too.
    im a broken record anymore but my theory is its the compressors all along that was doing the dirt everyone loves.

    Well, tubes is a funny thing right now. Fender and Marshall need to sell amps and we can't go around suggesting new tubes suck : ) hahah If nobody makes them, it will really suck.
