Chandler EMI TG12345 Curve Bender EQ

The ultimate TG equalizer issued in celebration of the 75th birthday of Abbey Road Studios
MFR# CURVE BENDER EQ (TG12345)

Product Description

The Chandler Curve Bender was conceived by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke and Abbey Road senior engineer Peter Cobbin and is based on the vintage EMI TG12345 desk used to record The Beatles and Pink Floyd.  This newest EMI equalizer continues the tradition of EMI eqs started in 1951 with the RS56, affectionately entitled the Curve bender by EMI designers and continued with the TG12345 in 1968, and TG12412 in 1974.  The newest version takes the simple but beautiful sounding TG12345 equalizer and realizes it in a fully featured and rethought package for today's use.

During his mixing of numerous Beatles related projects including, Anthology, Yellow Submarine, and Imagine, Peter Cobbin thought of having a fully featured and ultimately flexible version of the original desk eq units.  After Wade presented him with a working version of the famed console eq Pete realized his time had come and set Wade to making his unit.  Peter asked for four bands and filters based on the slopes of the original desk but with overlapping and expanded choices.  Wade turned the 9 selections on the vintage version into 51 eq points plus a multiply switch that increases the boost/cut to 15db (as well as sharpening the Q), filters, and bell/shelf selections on the high and low bands.

A simple equalizer from the rich past of EMI and Abbey Road has now come full circle into a modern powerhouse suitable for recording, mixing, and mastering.  The rest is new EMI/Abbey Road history.

Between the 2 at our business, and a third in my personal setup... I think that speaks for itself.

It’s one of those rare EQs that can do no wrong. All frequencies can boost and cut without ever sounding bad. It’s easy to get carried away with this and make bad mix decisions because everything it does sounds so damn good.

Shout out to Scotty for his patience, knowledge... and patience. What a wonderful guy.

I've got a few high quality stereo "mastering" EQ's in this vein, but the Chandler is the one I reach for most. I do primarily rock mixing and it's got the low end balls and punch to really add weight to a mix. Some of my other options, GML, Buzz, etc are amazing but sort of too transparent for mixing sometimes. This unit is the perfect mix of vibe and neutrality.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
