If you are at all like me, you have lots of very quiet sounds. Instrument level sounds, bit sniffer sounds, inductor coil sounds, sounds that are barely even there. We're talking electric guitars, piezos, contact microphones, pickups, anything you'd classify as a hi-z input - but Eurorack is loud! Eurorack signals are smoking hot! So how will you ever get the flimsy signal from your electric guitar into the glory of Eurorack hotness territory?

The solution is easy my friend, with the Micro Hi-Z preamp from Herzlich, you can crank that guitar all the way from amplification and into overdrive. Take your little piezo and get a good, strong signal out of it, or grab your preferred contact mic and get some sounds you never could have even dreamed of into your Eurorack, in just 2hp! That's almost as much as 1hp, which is nearly 0hp, which is no space at all. That's incredible!

Got large, adult-sized human hands? No problem! Instead of a wobbly, shaky rotary potentiometer (bad, no good) the engineers and scientists at Herzlich Labs opted to install a vertical slide pot to control gain instead (good, very nice). Controlling your gain is smooth and easy, I may even go so far as to say pleasurable experience, but the truth is seldom pure and never simple, except this one time where it is.

Go ahead, spend all that other hp you free up by buying the 2hp Hi-Z Preamp on some other stuff that will come in handy in your music production. Oh, and to the one bassist who inevitably reads this and wonders if it works for their electric bass guitar, too, even though I already said it works with electric guitars: yes, it does. You're welcome, bassist.
