The Elan MK5 Tube Acoustic Preamp

The ELAN MK-5 “Acoustic” all-tube floor preamp is a unique and innovative design with a patent-pending tube circuit specifically developed for acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments. It offers a rich, punchy, and dynamic sound with ample headroom, allowing you to achieve an enhanced acoustic tone.

The  Acoustic– All Tube Acoustic Floor preamp

One notable feature of the MK5 “Acoustic” preamp is that it does not have starved 12AX7 tube plates, unlike some other preamps. Instead, it performs exactly like full-size tube amplifiers with 12AX7 plate high voltage of over 300VDC. This ensures that you get the authentic tube amp sound and feel directly from your pedal board, without any compromise on tone or performance.

The MK5 “Acoustic” preamp is designed to be a perfect tool for ampless stages, studio recordings, and traveling musicians who need a reliable and high-quality solution for achieving professional-grade clean or acoustic tones. It is not limited to acoustic guitars, but can also be used with other  instruments, providing sparkling clean tones and headroom that can make your electric guitar sound convincingly acoustic.

With its unique circuitry and dedicated design for acoustic instruments, the ELAN MK-5 “Acoustic” all-tube floor preamp offers a versatile and powerful solution for musicians who want to enhance their acoustic performances or achieve convincing acoustic tones with their electric guitars.
