Triton Audio FetHead Mic Preamp

In-line microphone preamp for ribbon and dynamic mics
MFR# FetHead

Product Description

The Triton Audio FetHead is a low-noise, high quality, in-line microphone preamplifier. 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.

All tested microphones showed sonic improvement. 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. FetHead's high quality, low noise signal amplification also extends the usable range of a ribbon microphone, making it more suitable for recording softer passages.

Some ribbon microphones do not tolerate phantom power. FetHead's circuit uses 48 V phantom power but shields it from the microphone, so the microphone is protected.

Features:

  • For ribbon and dynamic microphones
  • Ultra low noise Class A JFET amplifier
  • 27 dB of clean gain
  • Allows your mic to perform under "no-load" condition
  • Easy install - 2 clicks and done
  • Lowers the noise floor of your recordings
  • Shielded enclosure
  • 4 matched JFets

This will make any ribbon mic shine!

By Alberto D on March 16, 2021

Just the boost I needed. Just as advertised; simple, clean gain. The inline gain gives me more flexibility and control in adjusting my interface preamp that I need with my low sensitivity dynamic.

By Eric P on February 9, 2021

A must for any dynamic mic that needs a clean boost. It made my sm57 much more capable without maxing on the gain. Excellent built quality and superb low noise.

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.

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!

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.
Michael D.
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.
