Thermionic Culture The Culture Vulture Dual Channel Valve enhancer

Liam Howlett was the very first customer to purchase a Phoenix compressor and Culture Vulture distortion from Unity Audio before the company established their distributor and dealer networks.

Originally designed as a "distortion box" to simulate distortion in valve amps it has found lots of uses beyond this. Some owners use them on drum loops, vocals, piano sounds and even across entire tracks (it is a stereo unit).

Predominant distortion can be changed from even to odd harmonics with a simple switch.

Thermionic Culture has always been an important part of The Prodigy’s sound. The new Limited Edition Culture Vulture takes it to a new level of sonic devastation.
