I mostly use this as a pre-amp for DIY contact mics, in a field recording context. I would highly recommend it for this purpose, as it will improve the low end of the frequency spectrum a lot!

TritonAudio BigAmp Piezo
hoko, 20.03.2019
In einem Ensemble für alte Musik ( bis zu 17 Instrumentalisten- Gesangssolisten einmal ausgenommen) setze ich bei einigen Streich-u. Zupfinstrumenten Piezos ein. Wir verstärken unser Musik nur gering, sie soll auf allen Plätzen (Kirchen i.d. Regel) nur so laut sein wie im Ensemble.
Vor einigen Tagen habe ich mir nun den TritonAudio BigAmp Piezo bestellt, promte Lieferung. Das Teil ist wirklich solide gebaut, wichtig, denn es wird auf dem Fußboden liegen-kurze Kabelverbindungen zum Piezo.

Der erste Test mit einem Mittelalter Psalter und einem ganz gewöhnlichem Clippiezo war schon eine kleine Sensation. Was da an Klang aus dem Psalter ertönte war großartig. Das Instrument klang "größer" als es vom Korpus ist, die Obertöne wurden ganz sacht übertragen, die Grundtöne kräftig, hier kommt es dann sicher auf die "richtigen" Piezos und der Feinarbeit am Mixer an.

Probe mit einer Gotischen Fidel mit metallenen Saiten, als Referenzmikros:
TritonAudio...
AKG C411/B29L,
Der BodyRez mit div. Piezos
Piezos direkt
Mixer war in allen 4 Kanälen gleich eingepegelt.
Der Triton brummte gewaltig,
also Gain auf +10 herunter, war leiser.
Was dann aber an Klang entstand, gestrichen mit einem Bogen, war schon beachtlich, hatte hauch hier den Eindruck eines viel größerem Instrumentes, aber nicht das es hohl klang, nein, es war ein wohltuendes Vollumen im Klang, Obertonreich, ja wie gewünscht.
Neutraler etwas trockener war die Wiedergabe mit dem AKG, klanglich absolut gut, nur Speiseteil auf dem Fußboden , problematisch, zumal die Instr. öfter gewechselt werden.
Nun zum BodyRez dieser war in keiner Weise vergleichbar. Verzerrte leicht, musste ganz heruntergeregelt werden, beim pizz.-Spiel war er etwas angebrachter.
Piezos direkt am Mixer klangen wie sie eben klingen.
Facit:
AKG und Triton gleichwertig, Instrument entscheidet hier.
Wobei das Trito einfacher zu händeln ist.
Bin nun gespannt auf den nächsten Liveauftritt wie sich der TritonAudio BigAmp dort "schlägt".

Comme une DI miniature
belabartok0, 28.11.2020
C'est un produit unique : sous la forme d'un adaptateur, un préamli actif avec une entrée très haute impédance bien adaptée à des micros piezo (j'utilise des FWF) et une sortie XLR symétrique, sans l'encombrement d'une boîte de direct. Attention ça fonctionne en 48V fantôme quand même. Très belle qualité de fabrication.
