Thermionic Culture Purple Bustard

The Thermionic Culture Purple Bustard builds off the legacy of the Fat Bustard and its more immediate predecessor, the Little Red Bustard. And though it sports a special edition purple faceplate in commemoration of Thermionic Culture's 20th anniversary, the Purple Bustard is not all about looks: it is about unparalleled sound quality. While the Little Red Bustard is perhaps one of the best values for its price class, the Purple Bustard adds significantly improved Phase Shift response, bringing it into the future while retaining all that made it great in the first place. Smooth, all-valve 16-channel summing with added Attitude and Air? Sign us up.
