Thermionic Culture has announced the release of Nightingale, the second of the company’s half rack 4U units.
Following the release of the Freebird three channel valve EQ, the Nightingale continues to incorporate the three part principle. This comprises two mic amps with valve EQ, each with their own outputs, which can give 20+ dBu, and one vari-mu compressor. The compressor section has its own input ("balanced" XLR) which can be selected instead of a feed from the mic amps.
The Nightingale uses five valves; two ECC832 for mic amp/EQ, one 6AQ8, one 5965, and one 5726 in the compressor section.
Units will be available end of July for £2125 ex vat.
