Chris Owens - Photography, Sound recording and Design "FEL Communications manufacture portable Microphone Preamplifiers for sound recording and broadcast. These are particularly aimed at consumer minidisc users who want an improved input stage for their microphones".
Deltic Sounds.com/ & Other Diesels Diesel Train Recordings "For superb microphone preamps that cut out hiss from mini-disc recordings and also improve their bass response. I started using (in 2002) an external microphone preamp from FEL Communications. The original intention was to try and reduce background hiss - something that it does very effectively - but it had the added bonus of restoring the essential bass response needed for Deltic recording especially. Previously, I had been boosting the bass using the digital equaliser. Most professional mic preamps are cumbersome separate units that require their own batteries. This FEL. device is contained within the mic connector and needs no added power-supply. The only drawback is the risk of overloading the recording when you are at close quarters to a Deltic (irrespective of record level setting)!"
