Thermionic Culture Fat Bustard II TX

With remarkable audio quality and the potential for aggressive coloration that only tubes can provide, Thermionic Culture's Fat Bustard II TX is a professional-grade summing mixer. It offers a whopping twelve inputs, grouped into four stereo channels and four mono channels with panning, plus two auxiliary inputs for maximum flexibility. Inside, the summing circuit utilizes a pair of 5965 tubes while the output makes use of 6SN7 tubes, both largely contributing to the high headroom and sonic character of the Fat Bustard. To push your mixers into harder territory, an aptly named Attitude control boosts up the harmonic distortion in the summing stage. For further shaping power, the EQ section offers independent Lift and Cut controls for low and high frequencies, as well as stereo width controls and bass-to-mono functionality. The TX version also makes use of balanced outputs, for clean, noise-free integration with the rest of your studio. Enhance the presence and personality of your mixes with the Fat Bustard II TX by Thermionic Culture.
