  • Product Description

    The D.W. Fearn VT-12 vacuum tube 70dB microphone preamplifier is designed to accommodate the low output level of ribbon and dynamic microphones.  It can also be used with condenser microphones.  Our VT-1 and VT-2 Vacuum tube microphone Preamplifiers are optimized for condensers.

    The VT-12 is very similar to our VT-2, but with higher gain (the VT-2 has 53dB of gain).  We use the same custom Jensen transformers and the same sonic philosophy as the VT-2.  So the trademark sound is there - definitely in the D.W. Fearn family of products.t To make the VT-12 more versatile, we include provision for phantom powering condenser microphones.  But since many engineers are concerned about possible damage to ribbon mics if phantom power is accidentally applied, we have a rear panel switch that disables all possibility of applying phantom power.  The front panel “+48” switches are inoperative in this mode, and a dual red/green indicator displays the status; green for disabled phantom power, off when phantom power is available but not turned on and red when phantom power is turned on.
