Yes. But we recommend using the -20 db pad or be comfortable with only rotating the input knob to about 9 o’clock max. With high output mics it is a good idea to start with the input knob at 9 o’clock and the use the output control to achieve line level. From there you can play with coloration and harmonics. Be aware that with high output mics, the preamp is already starting with a very large signal. It is not going to require much INPUT gain to generate harmonics and even distortion. But, then again, that might be what you’re after!
