The Chandler Limited TG2 Pre Amp/DI is a recreation of the rare EMI TG12428 pre amp used in EMI/Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles in the late 60s and early 70s. The sound was used on many famous recordings done at Abbey Road including The Beatles “Abbey Road” and Pink Floyd “Dark Side of the Moon.”

This microphone pre-amplifier features the same discrete transformer balanced amplifiers as the TG series limiter and offers a creamy, smooth tone with a surprisingly open, clear top end. The sound, as explained by many users, has “warmth” and punch, but with a “beautiful” expanded top end. In fact the unit does have a small rise in its top end frequency response and some warmth inducing distortion which contribute to its sound.

Options: Stepped Output (Stereo)

All TG units require and function on the PSU-1, Chandler Limited power supply. The PSU-1 has an internal switch for setting voltage to 120V or 220V (115V/230V).

Abbey Road Studios, EMI and TG and their associated logos are trade marks of EMI (IP) Limited.

Coil Audio

+1 I'm running an AEA R92 > Coil CA-70 > HEDD 192 And it's just fantastic, sometimes I blend in a 57 > BAE 1073. But the Coil get's so much more action out of a ribbon than a solid state mic - must be because they're from the same era?
