Thermionic Culture
Little Bustard

The Little Bustard ($2,670) from Thermionic Culture is the company's second tube-summing mixer that can be used independently as a stand-alone mixer or for adding more channels to a Fat Bustard. Features include 16 input channels with fixed gain, on/off switches, four mono inputs with mute switches and pan pots that can be defeated by another switch, adding an extra 6 dB of gain. Tubes include a pair of ECC83s/12AX7s on the gain stage, and two PC86s in the output stage. The master output section has independent left/right 31-position output pots and a simple output level indicator.



Soundmaster has released a wearable wireless remote that can be slipped on your index finger like a ring. Digimote (priced by quote only) is designed for one-hand operation, allowing the user to keep his/her hands on the faders while issuing commands to the Soundmaster ION® system.
