M-Audio Tampa Close-up

M-Audio Tampa Mic Preamp

I’ve always been impressed with M-Audio gear. They seem to get a good balance of doing something simply, reliably and also in-expensive. Since, I’m going to be selling my Tampa (as I’m getting rid of my studio equipment and focusing on live) I thought I would write a quick review of it.

In short, this is a fantastic mic pre to add some valve-like coloration to a signal in a subtle way.
