Simple and elegant solution to adding gain
Audio geek, 09.05.2021
These FetAmps were bundled with the new SM7B microphones we purchased for a studio rebuild. They do exactly what they say on the tin and give the 7B a much needed boost. For some reason though when used with our Alice Series A desk we get a very low level buzz induced to the signal chain and this affects all three FetAmps and channels in any combination. If I try them all on another mixer (D&R Airmate) the buzz disappears altogether and the gain improvement is crystal clear so I can only attribute the issue to the Alice desk itself. Luckily the Alice has a good 60dB of adjustable gain and these channel are superbly quiet so we weren't in trouble. I still need to experiment further with another Alice Series A in the second studio and probably just need to add some decoupling to the channel strip to soft this buzzing issue. After all they are classic mixers and need a bit of TLC from time to time!

Very solid product
MariusHB, 22.08.2021
I bought this alongside a Shure SM7B, effortless plug-and-play, the sound quality is not affected to any noticable extent.

Definitely a solid deal, it being offered as a bundle with the microphone made chosing very straight forward - Which personally is a plus, because I didn't want to spend ages also finding an amplifier.

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.

Good amp
pavelson, 26.08.2021
It totally does what it is made for. I use it with my Shure SM 7 B and this little preamplifier makes it louder with fantastic quality and I love it. Thanks.
