Thermionic Culture Vulture Solo
The Culture Vulture Solo is a new development of the Vulture recently designed with more of a focus on use with guitar and bass di / amplifier front end applications.
But according to the company, the unit also retains all the features for line level applications that previous models, including the Limited edition Culture Vulture, offered.
The Culture Vulture Solo is a single channel unit in a 2U 19" rack chassis. It features the ability to switch, via the front panel or a dedicated footswitch, between the Clean and Dirty channels.
The Clean channel is an active channel that provides up to 35dB variable gain to an instrument level signal with "a flat but warm sounding frequency response," according to TC.
The Dirty channel has the Vultures Drive, Distortion type, Bias controls found on a standard Culture Vulture. It also features the PQ positions found on a Limited Edition Culture Vulture and the two Squash positions found on the Mastering and Limited Edition Culture Vultures.
The Dirty channel has a new Presence control and another over the amount of LPF available. The rear input connector of the Culture Vulture Solo is unbalanced and semi-floating, designed for improved integration with a DAW setup.
The valve complement of the Culture Vulture Solo is:
- 1 ECC83 double triode
- 1 5725 / 6AS6 single pentode
- 1 12DW7 / ECC832 double triode
Pricing is TBA.
