"When you're on stage there's a limit to the amount of stuff that you really want to have to deal with. So we gave the Mini Pre a volume control, and that's it."
"A nice simple preamp for testing acoustic pickups in my shop."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor
If a basic impedance matching and signal-boosting preamp is all you need for your acoustic pickup—you're adjusting tone at your amp or soundboard—the economical Mini Pre is a great choice. It's compact, includes a handy belt clip, standard 1/4" jacks, and a simple one-knob gain control. The preset flat response keeps your sound clean and uncolored. The Mini Pre accepts all piezo and magnetic pickups. 9-volt battery required.
