This week’s Studio Deals selection consists of recording essentials in the affordable end of the market, and with the holiday season around the corner, there’s no excuse.
When it comes to recording, everyone has to start somewhere and this doesn’t have to come with a financial setback. Let’s take a look at these affordable offers available:
Triton Audio FetHead
When your ribbon and dynamic microphones need a little extra gain, the Triton Audio FetHead offers a simple and portable solution. By placing the FetHead in your signal chain, you get a low-noise Class A JFET amplification stage, which is perfect for use in studio or at your live shows.
Simply plug it in, switch on your Phantom power (none of which reaches the mic), and voilà – you have an extra 27 dB of discrete gain to work with.

Need to record demos at home? The Rode NT-1A is a tried and tested recording solution in both home and pro studios. This complete vocal recording set comes with the SM6 shock mount with its integrated pop-shield.
Its single-pattern design gives you the cardioid pickup pattern which is ideal for vocals. However, this mic sounds great on acoustic guitar, amp cabinet, and even in overhead configurations.
