Does the job perfectly, needs more recognition
Ronfontu, 25.01.2021
Little disclaimer: I would have gone for the Klark Teknik CT1 if it were in stock but I needed an preamp asap.

This preamp does a good job and needs more recognition imo.
There is not much to say, go for it if you want to save money and avoid overpriced stuff. I used this with the Rode Podmic (I have 2 of each) and it let me put my gain way lower, reducing ambient noise. On the two FetAmps I have bought, one is a little bit loose when plugging it into the mic, that's why I gave it 4 stars. Other than that, I didn't have any problem. I would recommend this item.

Great Product!
Tony111, 03.04.2021
It does the same as all the others, but for a better price :) The sound quality and handling are awesome. Features are simple and easy to understand and use. On the downside, I do find the build quality to be a bit flimsy (does not affect the experience much).

9,5/10

Literally a cheaper version of the Triton.
HCJ , 10.03.2021
As stated in the title, this is basically the exact same piece of kit as the Triton FetAmp. i combine it with both Rode Procasters and Rode Podmics, and the result is a clear, loud, output. No need to place your noisy preamps too high.

I use it for my podcast, and find it has helped me achieve a clear sound, with very little need for post-processing beyond the basics.

The hardware is sturdy and well built, likely to stay together even with a lot of use.

Does what it's supposed to
DavidJB, 26.03.2021
It seemed to fulfill the role perfectly and a much easier/cheaper solution for high power demanding microphones. I tend not to need it at all once I got my goxlr. But when i did put this inline the shure sm7b was significantly easier to power without affecting the sound too much.
