Combining dual tube mic pres with a mono variable-gain tube compressor, The Nightingale from Thermionic Culture is designed to pack a huge amount of versatility into a half-rack-width unit. Suitable for live as well as studio applications, the combination of exceptionally musical Class-A, single-ended architecture and versatile internal signal routing offers a wide variety of sonic applications from combining dual mics through a compressor for amazingly punchy guitar tracks to providing a feed of both compressed and uncompressed signals from a mic or the DI input. No matter how you choose to use it, you™ll be rewarded with the incredible audio quality for which Thermionic Culture is renowned.
The commitment of Thermionic Culture' founder, Vic Keary, to high-quality tube audio gear dates back to the first studio he built in the 1950', and his company has taken the best of what tubes have to offer, updating the circuits for the low-noise and distortion levels required for modern recording. Solid-state components are confined to power supplies so that the audio path is pure tube musicality.
All-tube design for greater presence and naturality.
Completely free from solid state additives.
