The HiZ Plug-In FET-ZCON1 kit is everything that is required to complete the HiZ Plug-In FET-ZCON1 project. This particular circuit was a ground up design due to necessity. The need arose when my 2N3819 FET stock used in the original FET1 circuit ran out. Since the 2N3819's were basically impossible to locate, I decided to design an impedance converting circuit based on the J201 FET. You're probably thinking "that's hella dumb since the J201 is also out of production!". That is true however I was able to obtain a very large quantity of Fairchild factory stock near the time of their extinction. That said I have plenty enough J201's to last well beyond my lifetime.

This circuit sounds very mean and aggressive in a similar fashion to the old FET1 design. A nice sonic compliment to our other HiZ Plug-In offerings.

One important difference is I have manipulated the overall gain to match that of the "Post 2622" DI mode of the VP312DI. This will make comparing tones much easier since there will be no level change. That was the biggest gripe folks had with the old FET1 circuit.

This HiZ Plug-In module can be used in the VP312DI preamp

So what is the HiZ Plug-In format all about? The HiZ Plug-In is a new concept developed by myself and Volker Mayer, aka [silent:arts]. Our thought was to have a standardized footprint for a small PCB, which can contain many different HiZ circuits for different uses and applications. It is a modular design, much like the 2520 DOA. We use the same exact Mill-Max pins that we use for our DOA projects. The footprint is noticeably different from a 2520 DOA, to help avoid any costly mishaps. The HiZ Plug-In is an open format. Open to any and all who want to experiment or create their very own, unique HiZ circuit. In fact, we welcome and encourage that. A PDF with HiZ Plug-In specifications and requirements can be found below.
