Thermionic Culture Culture Vulture Super 15 (Unbalanced)

The Culture Vulture Super 15, from Thermionic Culture, is an all-valve distortion/enhancer unit with ten distortion effects and enhanced gain settings. The unit derives many of its features from previous incarnations, albeit with some notable improvements.

This inherently flexible unit features an increased gain stage that goes all the way up to 15—louder than all of its predecessors—as well as ten separate distortion settings. Beyond this, it still affords the same tonal control parameters that give users the ability to fine-tune their tones.

This version of the Culture Vulture Super 15 features unbalanced hi & lo outputs, which lend some added transparency. Additionally, five NOS tubes result in low noise performance and compound its already incredible sound.
