The Bock Audio iFet is a phantom powered (P48) FET condenser mic designed to capture the high SPL handling and sound of the classic fet47. The unique sonic signature of this mic is not easily replaced by modern microphone alternatives. To increase the value and versatility of the iFet, Bock added a second set of FET electronics for a second "sound", accessed via a switch.
The iFet has two different sets of electronics (mic amplifiers) sharing a K47 type capsule and large core specially designed Bock output transformer. These two "modes" of the Bock iFet offer two distinctly different sounds in one mic: the ideal FET mic for kick drums and a classic FET vocal mic for a wide variety of voices.
The "I" mode employs a classic high SPL Class A discrete electronic package (one FET and four transistors) with improved HF and LF extension. The goal of the Bock iFet is to deliver the essential dynamic characteristics of the classic high SPL FET mic but offer a better top end and deeper bass than was possible in vintage days.
The "V" vocal mode is a Class A adaption of a km84 circuit offering a simpler single path (one FET) and a warmer more intimate vocal sound. This amp has 4dB more sensitivity for lower SPL sources such as vocals. This is a beautiful sounding vocal mic!
Using the Bock iFet Always mute the mic when switching between V or I modes to avoid hearing a loud POP. Switching the mode means you are simultaneously switching the input and output of the mic's dual set of electronics!
For vocals or lower SPL sources, start with the "V" mode and use the proximity effect to taste. Bock's V mode offers a classic vocal mic sound that's "warmer" and not overly bright.
For kick drums and other high SPL sources, try the "I" mode. This classic FET sound may be used close up on a kick drum, snare drum, toms, bass amp, or super-loud vocalist.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
