How to improve the sound of your Behringer pre, tell me

  1. Hi:

    I know everyone on here hates Behringer products, and I actually found this website after I purchased the Behringer tube mic pre 100. The first thing I did as everyone knows is threw the tube that came with it in my neighbors backyard. I replaced it with a NOS Tunsgram, which really improved the sound, but still not to my liking. I then had the ideal of running a power attentuator after the preamp into the recorder, and it turned this mediocre pre into a much more transparent and usable preamp. I turned the gain to 3 o'clock position and the output all the way up, and I am getting a great crisp sound through it, especially on acoustic guitar, it also sounds great on vocals. For all you pro guys out there why does this make such a difference. I love my Behringer now.

    Why it works i gravy...that it does work for you is the important part.
    Sometimes you have to break something to fix it.
