WHAT IS IT?: The iFet is a phantom powered (P48) FET condenser
mic designed to capture the high SPL handling and sound of the classic fet47. The unique sonic signature of this mic is not easily replaced by modern microphone alternatives. To increase the value and versatility of the iFet, Bock added a second set of FET electronics for a second "sound", accessed via a switch.
WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT?: The iFet has two different sets of electronics (mic amplifiers) sharing a K47 type capsule and large core specially designed Bock output transformer. These two "modes" of the Bock iFet offer two distinctly different sounds in one mic: the ideal FET mic for kick drums and a classic FET vocal mic for a wide variety of voices.
For vocals or lower SPL sources, start with the "V" mode and use the proximity effect to taste. Bock's V mode offers a classic vocal mic sound that's "warmer" and not overly bright.
For kick drums and other high SPL sources, try the "I" mode. This classic FET sound may be used close up on a kick drum, snare drum, toms, bass amp, or super-loud vocalist.
