Compact, affordable, and capable of a stunningly wide range of tones, the BlueTube DP V2 dual-path mic/instrument preamplifier offers two independent channels, each with an XMAX Class A solid-state preamp, followed in the signal path by a 12AX7 vacuum-tube stage. Equipped with instrument and mic inputs and built tough for serious gigging, the BlueTube DP V2 is a great choice for guitarists, bassists, singer/songwriters, and more.

With two dual-path channels and this complement of I/O, you can use it as a preamp and as a direct box (DI) for guitars and basses. Singer-songwriters can run their vocal through one channel and their guitar through the other, feeding both to the P.A.—no guitar amp needed. Small enough to carry in a gig bag, the BlueTube DP V2 can also be screw-mounted to a standard rack tray, making it a great-sounding tool you’ll use on a variety of sources, whether live or in a studio.

The BlueTube DP V2 offers far and away the widest variety of tone-shaping capabilities of any preamp in its class. A Tube Drive control provides a wide range of sounds: When clicked off, you’re using the solid-state preamp for quiet, transparent amplification; when engaged, your signals flow through the tube preamp, and you can achieve anything from gentle warmth to edgy distortion. No matter the sound you're aiming for--from clean and transparent to ear-shredding fuzz and everything in between--you can achieve it with the BlueTube DP V2.
