The Thermionic Culture Rooster 2 is dual-channel all valve mic preamp with distortion controls offering a wide range of tonalities.

The Thermionic Culture Rooster 2 is extremely flexible offering a choice of harmonic distortions and subtle dynamic control. The preamp section uses a double triode 12AX7 input valve which produces a smooth sound at the input stage.  It includes +48V phantom power and a DI input which bypasses the transformer for high impedance unbalanced input.

Following the preamp section the Rooster 2 has an “Attitude” section which shapes the distortion produced by a 5654 valve. At its lowest settings, the Rooster 2 exhibits very low natural distortion far below 0.1% offering a clean sound. Increase the “Attitude” and extra harmonics are added delivering an extremely musical and warm valve sound. In Triode mode, the Rooster 2 will produce mainly 2nd order harmonics while in Pentode mode and 3rd harmonics for a more aggressive sound adding a wide range of creative options.

Following the attitude section is a simple yet very musical EQ section comprising Bass Lift and Cut, Mid/high Lift, Mid Cut and Low Pass filter.
