The Chandler Limited EMI Abbey Road Studios ‘TG Microphone Type L’ is a phantom powered, cardioid, large diaphragm condenser microphone, and as the name implies, the Type L is descended from the innovative ‘TG Microphone.’
The TG Microphone Type L inherits the core circuitry, capsule and ‘Dual Tone System’ of the larger ‘TG Microphone;’ however, this is where the similarity ends. Apart from the ‘TG Microphone,’ the Type L is tuned to have its own sound and unique voicings.
The Type L’s Dual Tone System feature provides two distinct characters in one microphone, ‘A’ and ‘B,’ and modifies the input stage, which extends the versatility of the microphone to accommodate a greater array of sources.
System ‘A’ is TG mid forward and harmonically rich, whereas, the ‘B’ voicing has a ribbon-like quality and is more pristine by contrast.
Tonal differences of the Dual Tone System aside, the Type L was designed to handle sensitive and higher SPL sources. With the PAD engaged, both system ‘A’ and ‘B’ are capable of handling loud sources; however, the ‘B’ setting with the PAD engaged is considered the extreme SPL mode of the Type L.
The TG Microphone Type L has a larger than solid-state sound and is intended as a recording studio workhorse, capable of rivaling scenarios where the C12, C414, FET47, U67 and U87 have found favor and may replace the practice of employing a dynamic and a ribbon in combination on guitar cabinets.
The Chandler Limited EMI Abbey Road Studios TG Microphone Type L kit includes: microphone, swivel mount and bamboo storage box.
