Chandler Germanium Mic Preamp
The Chandler Germanium Preamp features a completely new design by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke that uses classic germanium transistors in all class A, transformer balanced, circuits. The use of germanium devices opens a whole new sound palate not found in any pro audio equipment currently manufactured.
These incredibly smooth sounding transistors were the basis of the earliest transistor designs by Neve (1053, 1055, 1057), EMI ( TG12345 MKI), Telefunken, and Fairchild. Those familiar with these units can attest to the special sound of the germanium transistor. The Germanium series runs on +40 volt power, high current, and has a huge +34 output before clipping. The sound is warm and smooth as with many vintage style circuits, but you'll find a whole new world of smooth here as well as a sound that settles in perfectly to your tracks without fighting. Add these new circuits to Chandler's new transformer line that combines the best parts of our favorite trannies, St Ives and Gardners, into new great sounding input and output transformers.

Fantastic microphone preamp that will work on a ton of sources and will impart some character into the recording. So far I have liked to use it to tame the top end on some electric guitars or vocalists that maybe are a little sibilant. The Thick switch is great on kick drum, snare drum and electric guitars.I’ll be picking up a 2nd to use on overheads for drummers who a little heavy handed with cymbals.
