Simple and effective clean boost for mic
John3816, 13.08.2019
This unit provides a solid boost to the line level of a microphone, with no perceivable added noise.
I'm using it with a passive ribbon mic that has a very low output level. This is fine when mic'ing an amplifier, but was too low for many applications like vocals or acoustic guitar. The FetHead has provided exactly what I needed, giving me plenty of level without having to drive the preamp too hard.
I went for the FetHead Filter (which has a subtle 6db/oct roll-off below 220 Hz) as I found I was putting a high-pass filter on most tracks where I used the ribbon mic. The filter takes out any rumble quite nicely and simplifies mixing.
The only little imperfection was that the Triton Audio badge had fallen off the FetHead in transit. But it was purely cosmetic and I just glued it back on. The unit was fine otherwise!

Fantástico para combinar con SM57 en home estudio
Porti, 15.10.2018
Necesitaba darle un poco más de volumen a mi SM57 y estaba considerando varias opciones. Este filtro da unos resultados espectaculares si grabas voces o instrumentos en una habitación no acondicionada porque te permite grabar a un volumen aceptable y evitar que ruidos innecesarios se "cuelen" en tu grabación.

was weg kann, kann weg..
GreatSound, 23.08.2018
..und das ist ja manchmal unterhalb 220Hz. Die 220Hz low-cut-Variante des FetHead hält, genau wie der normale FetHead, das was er verspricht. Ich bin FetHead-Fan an MD441, RE20 und 4038 und habe mit dem FetHead Filter nun auch eine no-brainer Variante zur Reduktion des Nahbesprechungseffektes. Klar lässt sich das auch anders lösen, aber mir geht es oft um: "Dran, Phantom an, los"

Oui mais.
PnF Studios, 13.01.2019
Apres avoir reçu une première version défectueuse et visiblement emballée comme tel par le fabriquant, l'échange rapide réalisé par Thomann c'est déroulé sans aucun problème. Ce produit à donné une seconde vie à nos "vieux" RCA à ruban, il rempli parfaitement son rôle. Toutefois, une connectique pro, type (NT) aurait été préférable...
