The Nightingale is the second of Thermionic Culture half rack 4U units, the first being the Freebird 3 channel valve EQ.

It consists of 3 parts:

  • 2 x Mic amps with valve eq.  Both have their own outputs (XLR unbalanced) which can give 20+dBu.
  • 1 x vari-mu compressor-based on The Phoenix but with a little more “attitude”.  The compressor section has its own input (“balanced” XLR) which can be selected instead of a feed from the mic amps, also an XLR “balanced” output capable of +25 dBu.


Uses:

  • Apart from the 3 separate parts of 2 mic amps with eq + compressor

 

  • As 2 mic inputs into the compressor for live or studio vocals

 

  • Using the Phase switch on 1 channel, combine 2 snare drum mics thru the compressor for fat results
  • Feed a signal thru 1 mic ampstraight to mixing desk, also select the same mic amp output to the compressor & drive it, then feed the compressor output to another  channel on the mixing desk & combine them (more variation of compression control).

 

  • The Nightingale uses 5 valves
  • 2 x ECC832 for mic amp/eq, 1 × 6AQ8, 1 × 5965 + 1 × 5726 in the compressor section.


Controls

  • Mic Amp/eq: Input select (Mic Lo, Mic Hi, Line), Bass lift, Bass Cut will give 2 positions of increasing bass shelving cut which interact with the bass lift to give a variable mid cut overall. The Hi Pass is used for cutting very low problem frequencies. Top lift & cut, Presence, Gain, Hi pass filter, Phantom power (+48v).  Note: Bass & Top lift controls use our Varislope curves which favour the extremes (40Hz & 10 kHz) when set high.
  • Compressor: Input select (Mic A, Mic B, A+B, direct Line), Gain, Threshold (4 steps), Release ( 3 way switch ), Output level (5 way switch).

Units will be available end of July for £2125 ex vat.
