Because of my kids, I'm limited to pretty much recording at headphone volume. I've been looking to getting a tube preamp to improve the tone on my recordings instead of going with just digital effects w/amp/cabinet modelling.
Someone told me to save my money and just put my effects through a mic tube preamp (which are a fraction of the cost) instead. He claimed, if I'm not miking real speakers it won't make much of a difference.
Anyone ever tried a mic preamp to record guitar direct?
I don't think it'll match the impedance of the guitar or the effects pedals (unless it specifically has "Hi-Z" inputs). You should consider a DI box, which will do the same thing.
