It provides improved sound for Ribbon and Dynamic microphones. The electronics are housed in a robust metal chassis with a balanced 3-pole female XLR input and a balanced 3-pole male XLR output, rugged enough for use at home, in the studio or on tour. FetHead is available in three versions Fethead: A regular version for Ribbon and Dynamic microphones Fethead Phantom: A FetHead for Condenser microphones Fethead Filter:A FetHead with high-pass filter for Ribbon and Dynamic mic's Which microphones benefit In short, we noticed an improvement on all tested microphones. A Shure SM57 for instance, sounds more responsive over a broader frequency range. When mated with a high-end dynamic microphone like a Sennheiser MD441, or Shure SM7 FetHead really shines. Ribbon microphones benefit greatly too because of a much better impedance match, which lessens the load on the microphone, giving it better transient response characteristics. FetHeads high quality, low noise signal amplification also extends the usable range of a ribbon microphone, by making it more suitable for recording softer passages. Protects the microphone Some ribbon microphones do not tolerate phantom power, FetHead's circuit uses Phantom power but shields it from its input (and the microphone's output), as a result it offers effective protection to the microphone. How it works Attach FetHead on to a balanced microphone cable and plug it straigt into the microphone, no extra cables are required. Switch on phantom power and enjoy 20dB of clean gain! Features Ultra low noise Class A JFet amplifier 20db amplification (@ 1000 ohm load) double single ended amplifier topology Hand matched jFets Shielded enclosure Z-in 22k 18-48 v phantom power FetHead Phantom FetHead Phantom is a FetHead version which allows phantom power to reach the microphone. It was developed after several requests from different audio engineers to build a FetHead for condenser microphones with low output. We tested FetHead Phantom on a broad range of condenser microphones and are very happy with the results. It works well with electret microphones like the countryman or an AKG C1000. These are microphones which consume little power, FetHead Phantom also works great on "real" condenser microphones like a Neumann U87, AKG C414 etc. Note: With Rode NTG2 microphones, especially in combination with mobile recorders, we advice to use a regular FetHead, please see this detailed description. FetHead Phantom can be distinguished by the type indication ring and red markers below the TritonAudio label. FetHead Filter FetHead Filter is a Fethead version with a built-in 6dB/octave high pass filter with a corner frequency of 220Hz (other cutoff frequencies available on request). It is specially designed for microphones which exhibit an excessive proximity effect / low frequency response, like long motor ribbon microphones. The components which make up the filter are not directly in the signal path but are applied to the components which set the gain of FetHead Filters amplifier, thus making it frequency dependant. This way the sonic character which makes a FetHead attractive to the ear is preserved. FetHead Filter can be distinguished by the type indication ring and green markers below the TritonAudio label.
