This Special Limited Edition Fat Bustard II is introduced for those purists who want the facilities of the Fat Bustard summing mixer.
Mixer (special equalisation for the mix,stereo width, bass to centre) but a little less colourisation and even lower distortion and noise, though not as much max "Attitude". The top response now extends to 50+ kHz with consequently less phase shift.
It uses 6072A double triode input valves in place of 5965s.
Both Fat Bustards have exactly the same 14 inputs, and same controls. The black more Aggressive Fat Bustard continues to be made, so the user has a choice until all the Green ones have been sold.
All valve 14 channel passive summing mixer with many extras !Pan controls on 4 channels.Unique Varislope Top and Bass lifts plus filters.'Attitude' control to add harmonics.Stereo width; expand or contract the featuresStereo "picture" and "bass to centre" and "mono"Precision ELMA switch to control main level (fadeable).Monitor outputs with level control and switching.Hand wired with point to point wiring throughout.Exceptional sound quality- very low distortion except when required and massive 'headroom'.Frequency response extends from below audio range to well above.
Input impedance: 10k (dependent upon channel and setting), "semi floating"Output impedance: Monitor: 600 unbalanced 5kunbalancedGain (ch. 1-8): 0 at Attitude 1, +11.5dB at max attitudeMaximum Output level: Distortion: +25dBUSignal to noise: (30kHz filter) (at Attitude 1) 0.013% +8dBm output (at Attitude 3) 0.2% (at max. attitude) 1% (dependent on how hard valves are driven)Freq. response (±1dB): at least 103dB below MOL at Att.1Max bass lift 11Hz to 55kHz (at Attitude 1) +10dB @ 50HzMax top lift: +12db @ 12kHzPhase shift (10kHz): with EQ flat (at Att.1), 5% (18°), (at Att.4), 8% (29°)Crosstalk (at Attitude 2): 60dB @ 1kHz, 48dB @ 10kHz. Crosstalk will increase at high attitude settings and when stereo spread and/or bass to centre controls are used.
