Cloud Microphones CL-1 Cloudlifter
Cloudlifter 1-channel mic activator, +25dB in-line microphone preamplifier
Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator is an easy to use, compact solution for common audio problems faced in the field and in the studio. Designed for all passive microphones - including ribbons- the CL-1 safely uses any standard phantom powered microphone input device to provide up to +25db of ultra- clean, transparent gain.
Cloudlifters dramatically improve the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. Enclosed in a rugged steel enclosure offering excellent shielding, the CL-1 additionally has provisions for stage or stand mounting with the included strap.
Using patent pending technology that keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors, the CL-1 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers world class, ultra-clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source.
Gives passive mics up to +25dB additional active outputProvides 2 distinct stages of ultra-clean gainEasy to use self contained design requires only phantom powerRecommended for use with all passive dynamic microphonesCompatible with tube, battery, or power supply driven microphones - Safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of phantomUtilizes Patent Pending Class A, Discrete JFET circuitryIdeal impedance loading for optimal performance @3KohmsRugged, road ready and portable, for studio, stage and broadcasting - Free lifetime limited warranty for parts and labor, with registrationHandcrafted entirely in the USA

Good preamp for voice
Comparing to FetHead this sounds more natural without the mid brightness boost. Good for voice. I use it with my Beyerdynamic m160 and it's a good combo.

Cl1 Cloud Lifter
Bought this to use for a Beyer M-160 ribbon mic to boost the gain. Works great and doesn't add noise. Mount close to the mic. Does what it says. Economik was great to deal with.

Cloudlifter CL-1 (thumbs up!)
Not much to say on this product other than it does what it says it will. Delivers clean gain to my SM7b and Ribbon mics. No complaints! And it's always great dealing with Alex Sergerie and Economik.com. \m/
