TritonAudio Fethead Germanium
Germanium Microphone Preamp
FetHead Germanium is a high quality, in-line microphone preamplifier. It provides a punchy and direct, 'larger than life' germanium sound for ribbon and dynamic microphones, adding classy Germanium harmonics. Sounding full and rich, it is reminiscent of much higher priced vintage gear, making FetHead Ge's desirable colouration a really great addition to (Interface) preamps which sound rather neutral.
Germanium transistors were widely used in the earliest transistor designs by Neve, EMI, Telefunken, and Fairchild, and have developed a reputation for a decidedly vintage mojo that remains sought after today. We created a novel hybrid circuit that consists of low noise JFETs and a hand-selected 'new old stock' germanium transistor to take full advantage of the "Germanium" sound and at the same time achieve the same sonic quality we are known for.
Protects the Microphone
Some ribbon microphones do not tolerate phantom power. FetHead Germanium circuit uses 48v phantom power but shields it from the microphone, your microphone is protected.
