The Chandler EMI Abbey Road Studios TG Microphone is a modern classic — a solid-state large diaphragm condenser microphone capable of rivaling some of the most popular mics of all time. This stunning synergy of vintage vibe and contemporary innovation perfectly captures the iconic TG tone and implements a number of cutting-edge features.
The TG Microphone introduces a unique on-board EMI ‘Tape Equalizer’ section, adapted from the NAB/IEC tape equalizer found on vintage EMI TG mastering desks. Originally used to compensate for the unique EQ curves found on 15 ips and 30 ips tape machines, EMI’s Tape Equalizer provides ample analog warmth.
This powerful tone-shaping tool has been repurposed in the TG Microphone, allowing engineers to sculpt their sound at the source. Perfect for recording radio-ready vocals, the TG Microphone delivers sounds that will leave your FET47, C414, U87, and U47 mics collecting dust.
The TG Microphone delivers a distinctly colorful, yet highly versatile sound that’s perfect for capturing any instrument. Featuring a unique 'Dual Tone System' for extended flexibility, the TG Microphone is capable of capturing a wide range of sound sources. TG Microphone also features selectable cardioid and omni pickup patterns for even more sonic variety.
System 'A' offers the classic TG mid-forward sound—perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments. The alternate 'B' voicing excels at handling extreme SPLs and sounds great on kick drums, bass instruments, guitar amps, brass and more—similar to the legendary FET47. TG Microphone is also equipped with a -10 dB pad for those moments when you really need to crank it up to 11.
The TG Microphone also includes a dedicated power supply (PSU), eschewing the use of traditional 48 V phantom power to provide a larger-than-solid-state sound. TG Microphone also includes a custom shock mount, 25’ Mogami 4-pin mic cable and wooden storage case.
"The TG Microphone is the coolest new mic I’ve heard. I preferred it on guitar over my vintage U67, this was on a small Gretsch combo using tape equalizer setting number '5;' it’s already becoming one of my favorite guitar mics!”
– Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Rival Sons, Chris Cornell, George Jones, Miranda Lambert)

This is a super versatile microphone. It’s like having a U87 and a Fet47 in one mic. Handles high SPL for guitar cabs and drums as well. So many different sounds with it’s A/B mode, the different EQ curves and fixed high pass filters. I definitely want a pair.
Great mic. Lots of detail & the 5 EQ settings add tons of creative flexibility. I highly recommend this. For the price range it’s as good as it gets.
This is an excellent and versatile choice for the money. It's definitely on the brighter side of the spectrum, but still has enough character in the lows and mid's to balance things out (Especially if you give your source a little more space and pull the mic back). The only reason I'm giving it 4 start is because the shockmount is pretty underwhelming. Despite Chandler sending out some tips and instructions for dealing with the shockmount, it' still a tight fit and it's really tough getting it in and out without pulling the felt lining off of the body clip parts. The threading on the mount is pretty temperamental and has given me problems on different mic stands. I'm thankful to Chandler that they got the mic into a great price point, but I would have been willing to pay a few hundred dollars more if it meant having a nice pelican style fitted case (Like the REDD mic) and a better shockmount.

wow... is one wonderful mic, it's sound is great, super recomended, thx VK, all good.
Great mic. Doesn't have a bad setting. Seems to have a fairly tight pickup so you don't get a lot of room sound which is great for what I'm doing . Highly recommend.
This mic sounds wonderful and holds up to my vintage Telefunken/ Neumann and AKG microphones amazingly well! I’m a snob when it comes to microphones and I’m happy to add this to my collection. This mic has a sound all it’s own and is able to produce multiple tones with it’s onboard equalization curves. I’m generally not a big fan of new microphones but this one is different and has found a home in my studio right alongside vintage microphones and my own personal builds costing many times more than this mic. Bang for your buck, this mic outperforms anything in it’s price range and IMHO sounds better than current offerings costing many times more! You will not be disappointed!
This microphone is a must have!
