The Kite is the new stereo tube EQ from Thermionic Culture designed to go on a master or mix bus.

It comes with dual controls for input gain bass boost / cut, high pass filter and a top shelf control, all with switchable frequencies and air and attitude controls to boost the high frequencies and valve harmonics respectively.

Features of the Thermionic Culture The Kite include:

  • All controls are stereo except O/P TRIM and are indented for easy recall;
  • HPF (High Pass Filter) operates at 20 & 40Hz with a 12dB/octave curve;
  • BASS BOOST and BASS CUT both have 2 selectable operating frequencies,
  • which can be used together for a Mid Cut effect;
  • TOP SHELF is a broad Mid/Top Lift, a little like a Presence control. Also has 2 frequencies.
  • AIR boosts the higher Top and will give an amazing clear yet warm sound, only available with out valve products;
  • ATTITUDE is our own switch that adds those special 2nd harmonics only possible with valves! ;
  • OUTPUT TRIM - Separate controls to adjust finely the 2 channels, also -6dB switches;
