The Schatten Mini-Pre Beltclip Preamp is compact in size at only 1 inch thick, 2 inches wide, and a touch over 3 inches in length (25mm x 50mm x 80mm). Weight is 4.5 ozs. (125 grams) with a battery. Schatten has kept things simple. When you're on stage there's a limit to the amount of stuff that you really want to have to deal with, so they gave the Mini-Pre a volume control, and that's it.
The Schatten Mini-Pre is tough enough to take years of stage abuse. The Mini-Pre is built into a rugged ABS box that is more than tough enough to stand on. Made in Canada. Comes complete with a sturdy belt clip that installs on the preamp in a minute, which you may use to clip the preamp to your belt or strap.
