Single channel high-gain version of the classic compressor.
  • Description
  • Features

Everyone is familiar with the Phoenix as a stereo valve compressor, and Thermionic Culture The Phoenix HG 15 is a single channel version with a slightly different and higher gain approach to compression. The HG 15 features the same smooth and gentle compression curves, but with the added character of reacting more like a limiter at high compression levels.

Thermionic Culture The Phoenix HG 15 also features a mic pre-amp with gain control, and active EQ with Presence and Air controls. Adding a little of this EQ with the threshold switch to Comp Out allows the unit to work as a beautifully clean mic amp. Switching in some compression then will provide that beautiful, gentle sound the Phoenix is famous for.

Gain in Thermionic Culture The Phoenix HG 15 is boosted across the board. This is so that the unit lends itself more to mic inputs, especially valve and FET condensers. That isn’t to say that moving coil mics aren’t suitable – the HG 15 will work well with loud or close-mic input…

At the output stage, the level control acts as an attenuator after the circuitry has worked its magic. It can be used simply to back off the level if it’s feeding into something with a low level input, or can be backed off with the input gain increased to add character and an LA-2A or 1176 style. There is also a Side Chain Bass Cut switch, as with the standard stereo Phoenix, allowing compression to not be applied to the bass frequencies.

On the back of Thermionic Culture The Phoenix HG 15 there is a phono socket that can be used to link up two units to be used in stereo.

In summary, Thermionic Culture The Phoenix HG 15 is a stunning mic pre and compressor with added EQ. Thermionic’s usual hand-wired circuitry and all-valve signal path make for an exciting new all-in-one unit from the masters of valve technology.
