I just love the K&K Pure XLR Preamp! It works fantastic with the K&K Pure Mini, as well as other passive soundboard transducers. Small footprint, and simple controls that dial in a wonderful, natural tone. I highly recommend it!
**Very nice sound quality-transparency & super easy to use. I put it up against a few other preamps too and this one sounded the most natural of them all. If it had an 'fx' loop I would have given it 5 stars**
This is a great product and if you have a mixer with phantom power there is no need for batteries. The XLR Pre definitely makes the sound richer and more ear pleasing. I have 3 other guitars all with different pickups. An this is my favorite setup.
Works great with K&K banjo twin on open back 5-string. I've used this box w/ mando twin on multiple installs and it always performs great. For the banjo twin the XLR out was VERY hot, switched to 1/4" out and it calmed the microphonics & allowed for a little more gain. I would like to have power cable for permanent pedal board installs.
This preamp is the ONLY preamp that is an exact match for their passive pickup. I tried to use 'another name brand' preamp and impedance was not a match. It caused the sound to be harsh, but with this gem it is perfect. Don't hesitate, if you have a K and K passive pick up in your guitar - BUT IT.
