This is what the kit sounds like:
VACCUM + The microphone MicOne

The main concept of the hybrid microphone preamp was a combination of two main circuit topologies – tube and transistor. The first copes with high voltages, and the second – with electricity, lowering the resistance and preparing the signal for output to the next device. The hybrid solution solved a number of technical problems, simplifying circuitry, bypassing the heap of passive elements in the sound path, which are inherent in tube equipment.

The patent-pending preamp circuitry makes it extremely stable with the power sources it is connected to, as well as tube for replacement choice, thereby making the device usage simple and less problematic. There is no need to search and select correctly matched tubes of certain manufacturers. Preamp effectively transforms the magic of tubes, no matter what they are.
