Remember the soft blue glow from an old vacuum tube amp and their nice warm tone? You can have it again in a 2.2 pound package.
The GMF Ai ProTube is an innovative, great sounding "analog" Preamp/DI. Geared towards the acoustic instrument market, the Ai ProTube has a real "tube" that will make any acoustic instrument sound warm and inviting. This isn't just a tube simulation circuit; it is the real thing with a genuine 12AX7 tube circuit.
Why a Tube? Acoustic musicians pay thousands of dollars for a well-crafted and great sounding acoustic instrument. Most of this great tone is lost once the instrument is amplified because of today's sterile-sounding digital amplifying and recording equipment.
The GMF Ai ProTube is an acoustic preamplifier, direct box, and all around solution for connecting your acoustic instrument into a sound source.
The Ai ProTube can be used as a preamp for your acoustic instrument with your built in pick up or external pickup, or as a DI box to connect to a PA system or mixer board.
The Ai ProTube can also act as an alternative to a large amp for travel dates when you just can't pack your whole system. The Ai ProTube is easily connected to any PA or sound system via the Line Out or balanced XLR direct out connections. (Basically a high quality acoustic amp without the power amp or speakers.)
If you want to add your favorite effects, the Ai ProTube also includes an effects send and return loop. There is also a convenient Tuner Out jack.
