D.W. Fearn announces the launch of the 70dB VT-12 Vacuum Tube Mic Pre (price TBA), which will make its official debut at the 129th AES Convention in San Francisco's Moscone Center from November 4-7, 2010 in booth #620.

The D.W. Fearn 70dB VT-12 Vacuum Tube Microphone Preamp is designed to accommodate the low output level of ribbon and dynamic microphones. It can also be used with condenser microphones; D.W. Fearn’s existing VT-1 and VT-2 Vacuum Tube Mic Preamps are optimized for condensers.

The VT-12 includes a provision for phantom powering condenser microphones, as well as a rear panel switch that disables all possibility of applying phantom power to alleviate engineers' concerns about possible damage to ribbon mics if phantom power is accidentally applied.

"Ribbon microphones have made a well-deserved comeback in the recording world, and the VT-12 has the gain required to use any ribbon microphone and still have the classic musicality our designs are known for," says D.W. Fearn founder Douglas Fearn. "The design is based on our popular VT-2 mic preamp, using the same sonic philosophy. The sound of the VT-12 fits right into the D.W. Fearn family of products."
