Triton Audio FetHead In-Line Preamp
The Triton Audio FetHead In-Line Preamp is a low-noise, high quality, in-line microphone preamplifier. It provides improved sound and 27dB's of clean gain for Ribbon and Dynamic microphones.
The electronics of the Triton Audio FetHead 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.
Which microphones benefit
In short, there is 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, making it more suitable for recording softer passages.
Protects the microphone
Some ribbon microphones do not tolerate phantom power. FetHead's circuit uses 48v phantom power but shields it from the microphone, so the microphone is protected.

Just wanted to give a shoutout to Front End Audio. I have now purchased a few items from them, and they have always delivered on time and with great attention to detail and customer service.
Oh, and the Fethead...exactly what I needed to make my setup more complete! Great product.
