ROBBIE THE MIC PRE FLAGSHIP TUBE MIC AND INSTRUMENT PREAMP
Robbie is a Class-A discrete tube preamp that reveals the true tone of your voice or instrument. Robbie brings our heritage of design innovation and premium sound to your entire recording process. Featuring audiophile-grade components and an IC-free signal path, Robbie the Mic Pre delivers superior accuracy and transparency every time. With an unprecedented 34dB of headroom before clipping, Robbie will add depth and dimensionality to your recordings.
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Robbie puts an end to the tube vs. solid-state debate by combining the best aspects of each into one premium preamp. The fully discrete ECC88 twin triode tube input and gain stage deliver warm, rich and detailed tone—while the electronically balanced solid-state output ensures pristine sound with unmatched clarity. Together, it’s two halves of the same whole of audio quality—aka, perfection.
THE SOUND OF SILENCE
Every feature was designed to deliver the absolute highest sound quality. From the audiophile-grade ultra low noise metal film resistors and polystyrene capacitors, to the highest-quality discrete components for input and output, Robbie ensures unmatched performance. And with no IC’s in the signal path, you’ll never compromise the tone you worked so long to perfect.

Nice, it sounds great what you did. Better save that preset. Ive heard that’s the good one. I’ve actually experienced both, but too far apart from each to give an opinion. I sang in the newer ones recently and it was really boxy sounding on my voice. Not what I remembered from the first time...
The Blue Robbie is a fantastic value preamp if you are looking for the tube sound, and are willing to admit that you'd also like something that makes your clients go "hey, that's pretty neat."
Pros -- The Robbie is king when it comes to simplicity. With only a few toggle switches on the back...
Very Good Mic pre I must say. Add a tad of tube sound to your solid state strip without being too saturated.
Warm sound but not too much
Switches at the back...
