Chandler Limited REDD.47 Preamp

Recreation of the original valve line amplifiers used in Abbey Road Studios’ heralded and rare EMI REDD.51 recording consoles circa 1959-1968
MFR# REDD. 47 MIC AMPLIFIER

Product Description


Reborn from a legend

Designed as a central component to the EMI REDD.51 recording console, the original REDD.47 line amplifier was used to amplify virtually every stage of the audio path (mic inputs, line inputs, echo sends and monitors).

The REDD.47 lent its unmistakably punchy, aggressive character to music recorded at Abbey Road Studios between 1964 and 1968, including many tracks by The Beatles.

 

Enhanced for today's standards

The Chandler Limited REDD.47 Preamp offers many additional benefits to the original design including increased gain, allowing a range of tonal options from pristine clean sound to classic rich, saturated tone with up to 2% harmonic distortion before clipping. The Chandler Limited REDD.47 pre-amp easily reproduces the distortions heard on The Beatles’ ‘Revolution.’

Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 tube microphone pre-amplifier delivers the legendary sound of Abbey Road Studios’ ‘Holy Grail’ pre-amp, with extra features to meet today’s recording studio standards.

What a fat, fabulous pre! In our never-ending pursuit of analog warmth and vibe we added a pair of Redd .47 Pre-amps to our existing rack of Neve, BAE, API, Avalon & Universal pres. The addition has been magical in that the REDD.47 sounds like nothing you have and everything you’ve wanted. Its got character, in a great way…that only those EF86, E88CC tubes can create. It makes every mic and source better. You can digitally model all you want, but the only way to get true analog character is with analog gear. Get that sound up front, before it goes in the box…then it’s real. We think the Chandler Limited REDD .47 is the greatest Pre-amp on the planet.

Great sounding pre-amp. Low level 60 cycle hum is is bothersome...Causing me to hesitate purchasing a second unit. I need to troubleshoot or possibly send in for checkout by Chandler or V.K. Great compliment to my Neve 1073 pre-amps.

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.
