Released officially to mark our 10th year anniversary last 10/31/22. This is one of a few prototypes built before we put the final machine into production this year. Features all the same sounds and functions as the production model but aesthetically is missing the faceplate.
Thermionic Actuator is a unique formulation that spans 10 years in the making. A real Overdrive/Distortion machine that like all of our creations, will hold it's place in it's own catagory.
(Actual prototype unit may differ in layout but all functions and sounds are there)
Thermionic Actuator (Overdrive/Distortion)
-2 rare germanium transistors
-2 rare N.O.S. Vacuum tubes (used in 1950's IBM electronic computers)
-Cooling fan to keep the germanium transistors cool from the heat of the tubes
-All through hole high end components on a professional high quality pcb
-Custom ventilation grills for the cooling fan and to see the tubes working their magic
-High pass filter
-Input gain (ranges from boost to full out distortion)
-Unique tone and character
