The Chandler TG2 is a 1U rack-mounted solid-state replica of the classic EMI/Abbey Road preamp and DI unit.
With the Chandler TG2, it's like yesterday once more - the brilliant mellifluous quality of the sound that launched a thousand hit records
can be had, in a neat grey rack unit, once again.
Discrete transformer-balanced sound control gives you an open natural tone on the Chandler TG2 - but it never sounds clinical, thanks to the even-order harmonic distortion available. Warm is the term frequently used to describe the full-sounding analogue quality of the TG2. Vocalists particularly love the high-end presence lift that has made the Chandler TG2 such an established recording studio favourite.
Impedance-matching, 48V phantom supply, DI and phase reversal are all conveniently located on the Chandler TG2 front-panel and a centrally placed switch lets you sum both channels for mono compatibility.
