      Pros: Tube preamp, parametric equalizer, low price.Cons: The tube is extremely difficult to change (it requires 50% disassembly of the unit).Comments: After searching for months, I discovered and purchased this preamp to be used with a home audio system. If you know your audio, tube equipment of any kind is priced in the stratosphere but this is one of the audio bargains of our time.As for changing the tube, the inexperienced will not be able to accomplish the task. Behringer should have anticipated that some tube rolling would be done and made it easier to do so (it's amazing they're able to assemble the unit like this to begin with). In the future (I'm talking to you behringer), please put the tube where it can easily be changed. The three LED's don't serve any useful purpose and nobody's going to sit there staring at the tube (yeah, I disconnected them).Note to tube rollers: Before changing the tube, build yourself a socket extender (about 7" should do)and remount the tube under the top case for easy future access. If you're handy fabricating metal, a hole in the top case with a mesh screen to let the heat out (it's not very much) would be an excellent upgrade.

      I received 2 of these DOA with clear manufacturer defects resulting in a very large difference in gain and sound quality between the two channels. Channel 1 actually sounded exactly like it should, loud, crisp, and no hum, but channel 2 did just the opposite, there was a very noticeable high pitch hum, and the gain/level volume for the mic had to be turned up all the way just to hear anything at all. I tested both channels with various combinations of xlr cables and mics and the result was always the same. Even worse, the replacement was defective in both channels.I am sure if I had actually received an Ultragrain Pro that wasn't defective that I would have been happy with it, but unfortunately, after testing out 2 of these I had to give it up and just request a refund. Ended up just getting an Edirol M-16dx, which for some reason they don't sell here.

      Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

      The preamp is well built and inexpensive. Whitout the output controll for the line inputs, it just wasn't suitable for my application. Which is recording my acoustic guitar passive pickups in stereo with a condenser microphone.

      Musicians friend offered a prompt refund. Their customer service is great.

        A++ functionality with outstanding price = value! Regularly play, record and master with Rode, Alesis, ART, Bose, Trace Elliot, EV, Cubase, Ozone, Beyerdyn, Grado, etc with Taylor guitars for Drift@7. Was afraid this would be a waste of time for live applications. Not so! While not audiophile quality, very good to excellent quality with well thought out functionality and balanced design. Well done!

        Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

        This preamp is amazing at its pricepoint. It has all standard features like phanton power, phase correction, and a separate output control, but the variable high pass filter was the deal maker for me. Having a hpf that can go all the way up to 320 makes the preamp useful for many more different sources, like wind instruments, drum overheads, and other percussion instruments. The parametric equalizer is also particularly useful when I need to tame the high-end of cheap SDC mics. I wouldn't really use it for anything but cutting high end though. As for the tone of this thing, I can't really say it's better or worse than some higher end pres I've heard. IMO, preamps don't do enough for the sound to justify spending hundreds or thousands on them unless you've already gotten the best sounding mics and acoustic treatment you can get. This preamp does what it's supposed to do just fine. It is a little bit noisy when I have to crank up the output a bit when using dynamics but I really can't complain for what I paid for it. This is too good of a value.
        Oh and the LEDs behind the tube really bug me. I'll take them out when I decide to change out the stock Bugera tube. Btw, I don't think the 30v or so going to the tube is really doing much for the sound either but oh well.

        Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

        The Tube Change is a horribly difficult task but you will want to go with a lower gain Tube such as the Black Sable 5751 or the 12AT7 by JAN Philips. After the tube change there isn't a high end Mic Tube PreAmp that will surpass this unit. EXCELLENT!

        Killer for the price

        By Gramps77

        from Lockport NY

        Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

        Excellent unit for the money, Yeah I know if you spend a ton of money more you can get an art pre (I own one) but for a hundred bucks this unit is woth every penny. Some people claim the 12ax7 tube is just there for show-Thats garbage-they are expecting a fair low priced unit to react like a 5 or 6 hundred dollar one. I use this as one channel for my main microphone and the other channel for my bass and it works perfectly. Forget the people who say behringer stuff is junk, if your on a budget and need to get the best quality for the least money, go with this. I use this in a home apartment studio environment and itd just fine

        Ask me a question

        Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

        I bought this preamp as a temporary solution for vocals until my Art Pro Channel get repaired. It is simple to use, but the noise to signal ratio is horrible. When I paused while recording vocal noise level in Pro Tools meter bridge on the track was higher than normal. I couldn't hear it in my recordings, but I don't like any form of noise whether hums, click, or pops. I had to do so much editing on my vocal track that it was ridiculous. Need less to say I haven't recorded anything else since. I plan to get a vocal processor by TC Helicon that has built in mic pre with phantom power. I will use it instead.

        Bought this just for the phantom power. Has held up completely fine, does exactly what it is supposed to. Has not given me any problems what so ever. Nice looking peice in a rack. I like behringer. HOWEVER My mic sounds a little thin on it, but its probably the mic due to its lack of warmth.
