Product Information

A dual-personality preamp with an amazing variety of tones.

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. 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. 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.

Transparent solid-state, warm tube distortion, and everything in between.

With the BlueTube DP V2 dual-path preamp, you get the best of two worlds. Our popular Class A XMAX™ solid-state preamps are widely lauded for their clarity and transparency, delivering incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and aRICH overall sound. Found in many PreSonus products, it has received nothing but raves from users and the media alike. Our tube preamps are beloved for their warm, smooth sound, and the 12AX7 vacuum tubes in the BlueTube DP V2 are hand-selected and carefully tested to ensure top audio performance. Whether you want clean, transparent sound; ear-shredding fuzz; or something in between, you can achieve it with the BlueTube DP V2.
