Description

The Chandler Limited TG2 is a recreation of the rare EMI TG12428 pre amp used in EMI/Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles used in the late '60s and early '70s. The sound was used on many famous recordings done at Abbey Road including The Beatles "Abbey Road" and Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon."  The amplifiers were also used in many EMI circuits of the time.  Our version was remade from original design notes and circuit board drawings, provided by Abbey Road and EMI to ensure extreme authenticty!

This pre features the same discrete transformer balanced amplifiers as the TG series limiter and offers a creamy, smooth tone with a surprisingly open, clear top end (dare we say nicer than Neve....)  The sound, as explained by many users, has the Neve "warmth" and punch, but with a "nicer" expanded top end.  In fact the unit does have a small rise in its top end frequency response and some warmth inducing distortion which contribute to its sound.

Options: Stepped Output (Stereo)

Chandler Limited is the only company in the world authorized to develop, manufacture and market the “Official Equipment” of EMI/Abbey Road Studios.

Beatles vibe in a box!
The later Beatles tracks recorded on the solid state TG consoles are some of my favorite. Since the vintage TG series stuff is way too expensive, I went with Chandler's TG-2. I find it to have that texture, air, and warmth that I recognize in those Beatles recordings. It can get a little nasty if you push it real hard and if you let off it a bit the sound is very sweet and 70's sounding. I could use this pre on much about any source, but find it to be especially good on vocals, bass (as a DI) and snare (I like a super fat snare sound). It's also pretty cool sounding when you run a whole mix through it to warm it up and give it some more soul. The only source I kind of keep away from it is acoustic instruments because I find that it can smear delicate sources like piano and acoustic guitar a little bit. Otherwise, for electric instruments, vocals, bass where a vintage rock vibe is the order of the day - it simply rules.
