Thanks for sharing your experience

I think there may be a misconception that Thermionic Culture's gear in general is all about distortion when, in reality, outside of their Vultures, it brings effortless boosts, cuts, transparent compression and fast amplification that adds a open life, depth and dimension to things immediately, far before you even think about cranking the gain or flipping an Attitude switch. Their pieces are really special. I treat 'em like Pokemon at this point.

I'm using a Phoenix and Swift after the Little Red Bustard and there isn't too much of anything, honestly. The Phoenix's tube distortion doesn't really appear for me unless I have its gain set at around 8 or 9 out of 11 and the distortion that does present itself isn't ratty, hairy, spitty or any other kind of outward 'frayed' distortion. Instead it's this kind of classy inward 'crumple' that gives things body without the bloating... I haven't heard anything like it elsewhere.
