Thermioinic Pullet Eq - anyone tried it?

http://www.thermionicculture.com/products/pullet.htm
Now that I have finally figured out my Thermionic Phoenix and fallen in love with it and cannot wait to hear this eq. I am such a slut. Help - I need treatment.
I am glad there is a board like this where sick people like me know they are not alone with this illness.
Let me know if anyone has heard this. To tell you the truth, knowing that company, it has got be be great.
And I understand only A couple of thousand $ for two channels. I hope that was not a mistake when I heard that.

There is no treatment but my I recommend getting your girlfriend pregnant.
Yep, having a kid will challenge the inner slut by hitting him in the heart and the pocketbook all at once!

Pullet

Ok, on a more serious note. BT at Mercenary told me that Thermonic Culture are focusing on the Pheonix comps at the moment and havn't allowed the time to start turning out those eqs yet.

Maybe the final tweaks in white lab coats. Looks like a phone call is to be made.

The comp is very handy indeed...

From other unbiased source I heard it's absolutely ready to go now and sounds exceptionally well. In line with company's reputation I guess it will be nothing less then stellar product.
I'll take one for review anyway.

yeah it looks freakin cool. but I noticed one little detail. You can adjust the "q" and the frequency, but it has a fixed gain/cut of 21 db.

Can someone tell me why would you ever be boosting or cutting 21 db???

How does the pullet work - being passive? Can you go to it and then a mic pre or visa versa?
THANKS,

it looks DIY on the make up gain, so with a mic pre, they're saying prefferably 1200 ohm impedance. this would allow as many colors an stereo mic pres available at mixing ... a nice way to go. i'm very interested.

If I am reading the material correctly, it seems like it may be sort of surgical on the midrange but shelving on the high and low. This may be sufficient. Any comments? I have written to the U.S. distributor to see if they are in the U.S. now.

This is actually what i don't like.

I rather have a box that sounds good as a system than something you have to mix and match.

Something you just turn on and turn knobs till you like something than something you have to futz with and try to find something you like.

I think there is too much gear out here right now that tries to be everything to everyone than boxes that just do one thing great.

Just an opinion.


(P.S. It also pisses me off because i don't own any mic pres).

it seems like its trying to be not another pultec clone. and not having the gain section lowers the price. works for me. I hope its got variable boost and cut. this is what it says on mercenary:

The Pullet is a stereo passive equalizer providing a variable Q boost at 11 frequencies of 21 dB and simultaneously a cut at 11 frequencies of 21dB.

Maybe I am just reading into it too much like always.

I hear that, but for people with an abundance of mic pres, it is awesome! By that logic, do you prefer active monitors? I do, I like knowing that I am hearing the speakers as they were intended to be heard (assuming the room isn't whack).

I agree. Nothing better than putting those pres to use during a mix. So everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but the Pullet sound like an awesome product, and it is priced very well (especially for Thermionic!)

Again i own no pres except those in my Neves 31102 which i use as an EQ anyway.

For me to go out and buy a mic pres just to see what will match is a little OT to me.

And yes i prefer passive monitors.

Always have.

I guess that is one less Pullet order. Good news for those that want one. I doubt there will be that many around. The first shipment to arrive already sold out to pre-orders.

Dude i never said i wouldn't buy one.

I just said the fact that you have to add a mic pre for makeup gain turns me off.

Whatever.

Sorry to sound stupid , but... can anyone explain exactly how this would be patched? Am I correct in thinking that you can put line level into the EQ, but then need a mic amp to make up the gain (and therefore is the actual output of the EQ is at mic level)? Any idea of $$$?

never saw the pullet. i just heard the Early Bird (mic pre/eq) at Mercenary, though, and for the 10 minutes we checked it out i have to say i'm impressed. it's three fixed frequencies, bass mid and treble, but they fit the mic pre very well. we were able to turn the eq knobs pretty much all the way up and didn't hear any frequencies that sounded "overdone", it just made them "buttery".

where the **** did these thermionic culture folks even come from? one day they didn't exist and the next day i started hearing all this buzz about them, and then yesterday i heard that early bird...damn.

If it works like some of the other passive EQ's I have, that's essentially correct. You run line level signal into them and they drop the signal a certain amount of db's, so you patch in a mic pre after the passive EQ to make up the gain.

I should get one on loan and test it for y'all...

Had one on loan for my last session and plugged it up as an EQ- rubbish, it has to be used in conjunction with a mic pre- as there was nothing I was willing to sacrifice in the studio to gain a mids only eq it sat there for a few weeks and got sent back.

I love the Phoenix and Culture Vulture but this really just struck me as an add on to the Earlybird that should be in that unit anyway.
