Faithful recreation of the legendary EMI REDD.47 preamp and RS124 compressor used in Abbey Road Studios between 1959 and 1968.
The Chandler Limited REDD.47 Mic Preamp is a faithful recreation of the legendary EMI REDD.47 used in Abbey Road Studios.
The Chandler Limited REDD .47 reproduces the punch, aggressiveness of the original EMI / Abbey Road mic pre which was a replacement of the Telefunken V72S valve amp. However, the REDD 47 is graced with new features required by modern production techniques such as an increased gain offering a wide range of tonal options from clean to rich and saturated. Indeed the Redd.47 can produce up to 2% harmonic distortion before clipping.
The REDD47 features a stepped Voltage Gain knob (coarse) followed with 1dB stepped Fine Gain Set to help you set your gain precisely. A Rumble Filter or also known as high pass filter offers a range of 8 frequency points from 30Hz all the way up to 180Hz. A 20dB Pad is also available when used with loud sources and is followed by an output control which in combination with the different gain controls offers a wide range of colours. 48V phantom power and Pole (Phase reversal) switch are included.
The REDD.47 valve mic preamp delivers the legendary sound Of Abbey Road’s iconic mic pre and can easily reproduce the sound heard on The Beatle’s Revolution.

The Chandler Limited RS124 compressor is a faithful recreation of the EMI/Abbey Road RS124. This coveted valve compressor was redesigned in partnership with EMI/Abbey Road.
The Chandler Limited RS124 has an incredible smooth character. It can tame transients without sucking life out of the source and became an instant classic. Its unmistakable sound can be heard on many classics from the Beatles, Pink Floyd and many more. The RS124 is ideal for tracking, mixing and even mastering (with two units paired). It is an integral part of the legendary Abbey Road sound.
Chandler's new iteration brings some interesting updates for modern use. First of all, it combines three different historic models into one unit. The three units 60070B, 60050A and 61010B offered different performance. Both the 60050A and 61010B were favoured on bus or entire mixes while the 60070B was for tracking. These modes are featured on the adjustable attack, another improvement on the original. Another appointment is the Superfuse which engages a more aggressive personality.
