Triton Audio 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 coloration a really great addition to (Interface) preamps which sound rather neutral.

  • For Ribbon and Dynamic microphones
  • Great addition to neutral sounding preamps
  • New old stock Germanium transistor
  • 29dB amplification
  • Shielded Enclosure
  • Easy install – 2 clicks and done

Germanium flavour

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

Some ribbon microphone do not tolerate phantom power. FetHead Germanium circuit uses 48v phantom power but shields it from the microphone, your microphone is protected.
