Hey what’s good fam! Got something a little different for you today, it’s a mic preamp.
This is from Triton Audio out of the Netherlends, they let me know about the product and asked if I would be interested in doing a review.
Of course I wanted to check it out and you’ll see why below
So what is the FetHead?
This is an inline mic preamp, meaning, you just plug it between your mixer/cable and the mic.
Supply phantom power to it and it provides a nice gain stage for your dynamic mics.
The idea behind the FetHead is low noise with good sound output.
The reason I was interested in it was the form factory, I found it pretty cool that it was an inline preamp, making it straight forward to use for anyone.
How does it sound?
For me, I find the sound to be much fuller and warmer with my mic.
I feel my voice sounds much more natural and “open” going through the FetHead, as I always felt it was a little “filtered” or somewhat muffled from my interface.
I just felt like my mic wasn’t getting enough preamplification.
However, the sound coming out of the FetHead just sound very natural and clean.
It’s very low noise and makes it so I don’t even need to mess with a compressor or anything to get a strong sounding vocal track.
What’s the bottom line?
If you need a simple and straight forward mic pre, definitely check this out. It has a rich warm sound and provides a really dynamic signal.
I give the FetHead 4 out of 5 subs, there aren’t any options to mess with, but that’s okay, because it simply sounds great.
Another reason I wanted to show this to you is the price, it’s 69 euros, which converts to about $91 USD.
I think for the improvements that can be had
I got a little too close to the mic a few times in my video but hopefully you were able to get an idea of what this can do.
Of course it will sound different depending on your mic but I’m definitely a believer in the technology.
