FetHead Phantom is a FetHead version specially designed for condenser microphones. It works very well with electret microphones like the countryman or an AKG C1000. These are microphones which consume little power, FetHead Phantom also works great on "real" condenser microphones like a Neumann U87, AKG C414 etc. FetHead Phantom is also an indispensible tool for mobile recording and a real upgrade for Camera microphone preamps.
"Hi folks, I have a Tascam DR40 and am about to get a Rode Lavalier (condenser) mic. The preamps aren't great on the DR40, I'm reading through your site and wondering if the Fethead Phantom would be the right choice ?"
A FetHead Phantom can be used to get extra amplification, it has an xlr input. Does the Lavalier mic operate on 48V Phantom power and does it have an XLR male connector? In this case it should be no problem to use it together with a FetHead Phantom
"I would like to boost my Røde NT1a. I see you sell the regular Fethead, the Fethead Phantom and Fethead Filter. The Røde NT1a is a condenser microphone, so I think the Fethead Phantom is best. Which Fethead would you recommend?"
