Chandler Limited TG2 Dual Mono Mic Preamp

Dual-Mono Microphone PreampThe Chandler TG2 mic preamp has evolved into the classic studio standard for microphone recordings of electric guitars in recent years. Both dynamic (e.g. Shure SM57, Sennheiser e906) as well as condenser microphones (Neumann U87, U47) or ribbon mics (Royer 121) can record a punchy, differentiated and noble guitar sound meeting the highest demands, which is present and dominant in the mix from the beginning.

The TG2 is also suitable as a preamp for bass drum and snare giving those instruments the punch and aggressive timbre known from countless records.

As vocal preamp it is suitable especially with the Shure SM58 for rock-like and loud vocalists who want to be heard. That is why the TG2 mic preamp can be found in all the major studios and is used by celebrities like Michael Brauer (Coldplay) and Michael Wagner (King's X Metallica) on a daily basis. Anyone looking for an "all-rounder" mic preamp for rock music will find it with the TG2.

  • Requires optional power supply PSU-1 Art. 194566 (not included), connection cable to the power supply is included

Awesome preamp
Evan D, 07.02.2018
This is an awesome preamp, clean or dirty with alot of character!!
You can do some cool overdrive to fuzz sounds if you use it in a mix situation too! As a bass D.I. it sounds very big with lots of headroom or you can crank it and get some nice drive out of it

A high-end preamp with a sacr character!
Ryko, 30.05.2011
Extremely neat and very easy to use, this preamp has a great personality.

This preamp is a re-creation of the preamps built into the AbbeyRoad studios EMI TG12428 (Pink Floyd, Beatles, etc.).

The possibilities of color sound are immense. The knob 'Input' allows to "driver" the input stage of the preamp. In the minimal position (5), the sound is clear and detailed with a beautiful color in the mediums.
As soon as the Input is pushed, the treble begins to flicker, the harmonics emerge, the low-medium is gaining momentum.
If you continue pushing the input, a very nice analogical saturation very natural and dynamic is heard (excellent on a bass connected to the DI input of the TG2).

During my use, I found it excellent with a Royer R121 ribbon microphone on a Bogner XTC + Cab Bogner 4x12 (V30). The 300 ohm switch provides additional color options.
Excellent also for recording a bass (Fender Precision '79) connected to DI input or via a good external DI (active, A-Design REDDI in my case) connected either to the Mic input or On the DI input. In both cases, the result was perfect.
For singing, I plugged a FLEA47 into the TG2, gain between 5 and 10, a rock voice, wow! It was the ideal pair in this case.
For a battery plug, with 2 U87 in room room, the preamp slightly pushed (limit crunch), a big compression behind (type 1176), big slap!

In short a preamp top level with a lot of personality and character, a purchase that I do not regret!
