FetHead Filter is a high quality, phantom powered in-line preamp. It has a built-in high pass filter at 220Hz cutoff (other frequencies are available on request), this reduces the excessive low frequency/proximity effects
that some microphones exhibit, such as long motor ribbon mics. The filter elements are not directly in the signal path but are applied to the components which set the gain of the FetHead Filter’s amplifier. This ensures frequency dependence and that the sonic characteristics of the FetHead Filter are preserved.
Your Fethead Filter will latch straight onto any XLR equipped microphone, or anywhere else in the signal path between microphone and preamp/mixer. The electronics are housed in a robust metal chassis with a balanced female XLR input and a balanced male XLR output, rugged enough for use at home, in the studio or on tour.
- For ribbon and dynamic microphones
- Adds 27dB of clean gain
- 6dB per octave high pass filter
