format_quote The sound of the EMI/Abbey Road Studios equipment is world renowned, and imparts a unique and pleasing sonic character as heard on many famous recordings done at Abbey Road including The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” and Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” albums. For the first time ever, the legendary TG2 pre-amp sound is available in 500 Series format.
The TG2-500 microphone pre-amplifier features the same discrete, transformer-balanced amplifiers as Chandler Limited’s TG series: TG2 Pre Amp/DI, TG Microphone Cassette, TG12411 Channel (TG Channel MKII), and TG1 Limiter.
We’ve taken the microphone pre-amplifier and line amplifier from our highly acclaimed TG2 Pre Amp/DI and packaged it for the industry standard 500 Series format, while retaining the sound of Chandler Limited’s TG2 Pre Amp/DI. The aural quality has often been characterized as 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 TG2-500 microphone preamplifier does have a small rise in its top-end frequency response and some warmth inducing distortion, which contributes to its sound.
