Great!

26.09.2016
Hello prospective,

Have the Fredenstein F601A now for about 3 months in use and am very happy with it.
Due to the switchable, sonically very high-quality input and output transformers the preamp gets a clear but also for my feeling very charming and characteristic coloring, which reminds of classical console preamps.

Whether you want to have it in the recording path or not, you have to decide, of course, in the end. Due to its very low noise (Class-A technology), the preamp offers easy gain staging; Also for microphones that need a lot of pre-amplification.

The preamp delivers brilliant clear horizons without getting harsh (vA interesting for vocal recordings), as well as clear, warm, saturated recording in the deep and bass range (very noticeable at <200Hz), whereby each recording gains heat.

Even when I played bass or guitar (also acoustic guitar) via the high-impedance direct input, I was able to achieve great results with a very nice transient representation and defined sound in the bass range.

Conclusion:
Value for money UNBEATABLE!

I am super satisfied with the device.
Can be installed very easily (eg in the "Bento" 500 housing of Fredenstein) and operate. Explains of itself and sounds fantastic.
It should be said that the amps, especially when both transmitters are switched to clear colors.
I personally like this color but extremely well, especially with large-condenser microphones (eg U87 or NT2). Surely this color does not fit to all styles or instruments, so far I am more than satisfied with all the made recordings and can recommend it quite clearly.

Super Sound!

"And suddenly the rug was gone"
I must confess that I had not heard from Fredenstein before. The recommendation of a friend brought me now to these devices. I have recently been in the proud possession of an F601A Mic Preamp and an HD Mic Pre. I have to say the sound is great!

F601A:
This preamp is only used for vocals. (Although he also makes a very good figure with the acoustic guitar). To put it briefly, Hammersound, similar to the HD Mic Pre and the Lundahl circuits still very flexible in the sound.

HD Mic Pre:
I have never heard of such a fine drawing on an acoustic guitar before. The preamp is super-fast and makes exactly what it should, it strengthens bluntly all that comes in. The handling of the device is simple and clear. In my case, I use the HD Mic Pre for acoustic guitars.

Conclusion:
I am very enthusiastic about the two devices and can only say, try it out! Great value for money. Absolute purchase recommendation!
