Triton Audio FetHead Germanium
MPN #FETHEAD GERMANIUM
The Triton Audio 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 coloration a really great addition to (Interface) preamps which sound rather neutral.
Germanium transistors were widely used in 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

If you need that little bit of grit added to a Royer ribbon mic this will do it. I recorded trumpet and got great results.
