Bock Audio iFet
Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The Bock Audio iFet is a condenser mic capable of handling high SPL sources and delivering the sound of the classic Fet 47. The iFet features a K47 capsule and a Bock designed large core output transformer. Two sets of FET electronics - selectable via the front switch - provide different sounds and SPL handling capabilities making it a very versatile microphone.
The two modes are "I" and "V".
The "I" mode can handle high SPL levels and is great for use on kick drum, snare, toms, bass amp and loud vocalists. This mode employs a classic high SPL Class A discrete electronic package (one FET and four transistors) with HF and LF extension.
The "V" mode is a Class A adaption of a km84 circuit offering a simpler single path (one FET) with 4dB more sensitivity for a warmer more intimate vocal sound. In V mode, the iFet is a great sounding vocal microphone.
