Our Special Anniversary Edition of the Culture Vulture has been designed to have the same characteristics as the original, by using the same “enhancer” (or distortion) valves and the same output valve. The difference is in the Mullard M8100 input valves, replacing EF86. These give more gain with less noise, and improved frequency response. The 6AS6 “enhancer” valves are also Mullard and the output remains Philips 5963. All the valves are therefore expected to be extra reliable.
The Rooster 2 is a 2 channel all valve preamp with EQ and distortion controls. It is designed for a wide range of applications and can produce a large range of tones, harmonic distortion and subtle dynamic control.
The Culture Vulture Super 15 is the most comprehensive Vulture to date. It incorporates all the features found on the 11th Anniversary edition such as the 7 extra distortion functions, but also now features a 2 position Presence switch.
This is the original and still the only studio unit dedicated to just adding valve produced harmonic distortion to sounds, with no solid state components in the way. This unique unit has changed little since its introduction in 1998. There are 3 basic settings for the type of distortion.
The Ridge Farm Industries ‘Gas Cooker’ is a high performance all-valve, twin channel Microphone Amplifier and DI box. It excels in direct injection of high impedance instruments such as electric guitar, bass, Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer.
