The Fethead is an in-line microphone preamp that provides +20db of additional “ultra clean gain.”

This is an unboxing of the Triton Audio FetHead (watch in HD for best quality).

I can tell you that I did a very quick test using the ATR2100 direct into a Zoom H4n with and without the FetHead and my initial reaction is WOW. Audio samples will posted soon.
