LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 2014: World renowned manufacturing engineer David Bock has yet again captured the unmistakable tone of a cherished vintage microphone in a thoroughly modern design. This time it’s the Bock iFet phantom-powered condenser, which possesses the sonic soul of a classic fet47 mic of yesteryear plus more modern specifications, including deeper bass and higher highs. That would have been accomplishment enough, but Bock didn’t stop there. The iFet also features two completely separate amplifier circuits. The first circuit uses one FET and four transformers to beautifully capture high-SPL sources, such as drums and electric guitar. The second circuit uses one FET only and is ideally suited for quieter sources, such as voice. The two-circuit design effectively doubles the size of the Bock iFet’s sonic palette.
“There is a real art and science to designing and manufacturing a modern microphone with a specific sound, that embodies the sonic characteristics of a loved classic vintage microphone,” said Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor of Bock’s entire line of high-end studio microphones. “David Bock understands the fundamentals and nuances of microphone design with tremendous depth, and he is passionate about building great microphones that will stand the test of time in the studio. With its dual-circuitry design, the Bock iFet is a great studio vocal mic – with all of the depth, character, and authenticity you would find in a vintage studio condenser many times the iFet’s price – and also a great studio high SPL input instrument and kick drum microphone. That should make it especially appealing to individuals who are on a budget yet are unwilling to fall short of perfection.”
The Bock iFet Microphone is now shipping.
