The Triton Fethead is a simple high quality sounding boost for ribbon or dynamic microphones.
FetHead is a low-noise, high quality, in-line microphone preamplifier. It provides improved sound for Ribbon and Dynamic microphones. The electronics are housed in a robust metal chassis with a balanced 3-pole female XLR input and a balanced 3-pole male XLR output, rugged enough for use at home, in the studio or on tour.
Which microphones benefit
In short, we noticed an improvement on all tested microphones. A Shure SM57 for instance, sounds more responsive over a broader frequency range. When mated with a high-end dynamic microphone like a Sennheiser MD441, or Shure SM7 FetHead really shines. Ribbon microphones benefit greatly too because of a much better impedance match, which lessens the load on the microphone, giving it better transient response characteristics. FetHeads high quality, low noise signal amplification also extends the usable range of a ribbon microphone, making it more suitable for recording softer passages.
The FetHead is an excellent little device, providing transparent gain to low output dynamic mics. Even with good mic pres, having some additional headroom where I could back off on the pre gain was much appreciated. Used on all of my Shure SM7Bs.

Pour donner plus de détail d'éclat et de profondeur à un SM57 ou un MD421 sur les prises de guitare de basse ou autres le Triton Fethead à son petit côté magique.

Clean and tiny
Excellent form factor and great value (why I chose them over CloudLifters), works well on quiet dynamic mics

Does exactly what's it's suppose to do, works really well with my Shure SM7B and my RME Fireface UFX.

Triton FetHead saves the day
I was having issues when using Shure SM7 microphones in my studio because of gain/noise issues.
The snake I use sometimes picks-up noise from electrical lines nearby. Of course with the gain requirements for the Shure SM7, you amplify sound as well as noise.
The Triton FetHead resolved both gain and noise issue perfectly.
