new Chandler TG2 Abby Road/EMI mic preamp is the definitive recreation
of a pre amp used in rare EMI/Abbey Road consoles that produced
late 60s and early 70s classic recordings, including
Abbey Road and Dark Side of the Moon. The
Chandler EMI TG-2 preamp uses the same discrete transformer balanced
circuit amplifiers as the Chandler TG1 limiter and produces a warm,
smooth tone with an open, clear top end.
The big, natural sound of the Chandler TG2 is useful for warming
up individual tracks or entire mixes. Just run them through the
mic inputs, and set the inputs to minimum gain (+5db); adjust the
output for unity gain. Experiment with higher gain settings for
extra coloration. Requires optional PSU-1 external power supply.
The Chandler TG2 preamp now includes front-panel switchable 1200
ohm & 300 ohm selectable microphone input impedance. Just try each setting with your microphones and
use whichever sounds best.
