Thermionic Culture Fat Bustard II LEFat Bustard II LE
The Thermionic Culture Fat Bustard II LE (Unbalanced) is a 14 Channel Valve Summing Mixer with EQ and comes in a Limited Edition (Green).
This Special Limited Edition Fat Bustard II is for those purists who want the facilities of the Fat Bustard summing mixer (special equalisation for the mix, stereo width, bass to centre) but a little less colourisation and even lower distortion and noise, though not as much max “Attitude”.
The top response now extends to 50+ kHz with consequently less phase shift. It uses 6072A double triode input valves in place of 5965s.
Both Fat Bustards have exactly the same 14 inputs, and same controls. The black more Aggressive Fat Bustard continues to be made, so you hhace a choice until all the Green ones have been sold.
The following extras are available to special order:
- BALANCING TRANSFORMERS to isolate the outputs from ground.
- EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY to effectively eliminate mains hum.
Please check before purchase as prices for these are extra.
They can be retrofitted to any Fat Bustard by Thermionic Culture Ltd.
