Two Great Sounds In One Professional Mic!

Continuing in the effort to recreate proven and essential vintage microphone sounds no longer available, Soundelux has developed the new ifet7 mic. The ifet7 is a departure from Soundelux previous models which recreate the sound of just one vintage mic model. The ifet7 recreates the essential sounds of two different important vintage fet mics: the fet47 and 87fet. Incorporating all the standard features of the famous fet47 and 87fet from the 1960's, Soundelux engineering boasts new and unique improvements that make the ifet7 more useful than the original versions. For just about every studio, large or small, having two vintage microphones would be difficult or impossible. Getting two in one with the ifet7 (and at such a great price) makes this a must have microphone! The ifet7 is a phantom powered fet condenser mic designed to capture both the high SPL and sound of the classic fet47 and the vocal intimacy of the 87fet. Both the fet47 and 87fet were essential tools for the recording professional, but age and unit variation has made finding a good vintage mic difficult. Using the same key mechanical dimensions and construction of the classics, it looks like a short version of the Soundelux E47, but comes with an integral stand adaptor arm and has an optional shock mount. It will find its applications on vocals as well as instruments such as kick and close up drums and bass amps. The ifet7 has both a "V" (vocal) and "I" (instrument) mode which represent the two completely different sets of internal mic amplifiers used in attaining the fet47 or 87fet sound. In the "V" mode, minimal Class A electronics are employed for a more seductive vocal sound than the original 87fet. This is one sweet vocal mic! In the "I" mode, the mic employs Class AB electronics and exhibits the same behavior as the original with improved headroom. Unlike most modern fet mics, the ifet7 is fully transformer coupled (as were the originals) and sports an improved larger core transformer for improved low frequency headroom rivaling modern transformerless specs. The benefit is that it offers the best known level of performance without the frequency response artifacts and time variant drawbacks of modern transformerless microphones. The overall ifet7 difference is that it possesses a clearer top and bottom without sounding boxy plus delivers the essential dynamic characteristics of the original vintage models. The "V" mode has a LF contour with no rolloff and HF contour with a rolloff starting @15kHz to lessen sibilance. The V mode is the essential 87fet sound including its lower SPL capability, but offers a "warmer," less sterile character. For instruments, the ifet7 "I" instrument mode will likely be the choice. This mode provides a built in LF rolloff to reduce the bass heavy nature of close up mic work, and no HF rolloff for extended high end and improved definition. The "I" mode offers high SPL capability just like the fet47 and may be used close up on a snare drum, toms or kick drum.
