Tube Top delivers on everything one would expect, creamy, smooth, round tones of a flip top. I had hoped for a bypass switch for when I would go for more percussive tone. Don’t need it, slaps and pops come through nicely. Can’t imagine TT not being part of my signal path, and look forward to using it recording other instruments as well.

Game Changer!

I have had the extreme and unique pleasure of “gig testing” this fantastic little piece of 60s-era tube preamp technology for the past year and just as the title of my review plainly states, it’s simply a game changer for any instrumentalist who craves the fullness, warmth and “drive” that only tube-driven preamp technology can provide. The CURRY TUBE TOP preamp provides that “push-pull” valve fullness and warmth that the grand old hallowed tube amps of the 1960s all gave as a virtue of their design and the very thing that modern solid state-driven amplifiers simply cannot by virtue of their vastly different construction. Best of all, this little pre is minimal in terms of size, feather light in terms of weight and can be placed in the front of your signal chain and in front of your existing combo amp or stand-alone power amp to give you that real tube preamp warmth and feel that your current modern-designed amplifier isn’t currently giving you and can never hope to.

I am a working full-time musician and regularly play 4, 5 and 6-string electric basses in addition to upright acoustic bass as my primary instruments & even though each of these instruments often require widely different equalization curves dialed into my regular amplifier’s preamp section to sound natural, the CURRY TUBE TOP placed in front of all of my regular working amps has shaped the sound I get on all my basses in such a way as to render their amplified tones much warmer & fuller with simply gorgeous overtone response up top.

Personally, my favorite feature of the CURRY TUBE TOP is the “Drive” knob (which could rightly be called the “Tube Saturation” knob) as it essentially dictates how hard I “hit” or “saturate” the premium-grade vintage-era designed octal tubes in this preamp, giving me the flexibility to change the actual warmth of my bass tone from silky & smooth to crunchy & aggressive. I could not endorse this piece of inspired instrument amplifier technology mor...

Testimonials

"Just tried using the 'Curry Tube Top' as a pre in front of my Walter Woods dual channel mono ultra-high power amp (the "Blue Light") using both my Lakland electric and my acoustic upright. I'll be darned if that 'Curry Tube Top' didn't warm up the sound of the Walter and get my basses sounding rich and full the way I've always wished they would sound!" 

Ron Suffredini - Session Player

"It sounds AMAZING!! I plugged my Rhodes into it and it was warm and full sounding." 

Nathan Wilmarth - Keyboardist for the Doors

"Through the years I have used every bass preamp and DI under the sun and to my ears, nothing comes close to the warmth and depth of the 'Curry Tube Top'. Recently I had the chance to use it in a session at Capitol Studios and the sound was so rich and spectacular that I chose to bypass even the Neve preamps and line amps and recorded straight to Protools! That was a first..."
