Chandler Limited


Chandler Limited Germanium Pre Amp / DI

The Chandler Limited Germanium Pre Amp / DI sounds warm, organic, and is considered Chandler’s most vintage sounding Pre Amp yet! The Chandler Limited Germanium Pre Amp/DI is a completely new microphone pre-amplifier design by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke that uses classic germanium transistors in an all class A, transformer balanced circuit.

    • Germanium Pre Amp PRODUCT FEATURES:

      The use of germanium devices opens a whole new sound palate not found in any pro audio equipment currently manufactured.

      These incredibly smooth sounding transistors were the basis of the earliest transistor designs by Neve (1053, 1055, 1057), EMI (TG12345 MKI), Telefunken, and Fairchild. Those familiar with these units can attest to the special sound of the germanium transistor. The GERMANIUM series runs on +40 volt power, high current, and has a huge +34 output before clipping. The sound is warm and smooth, as with many vintage style circuits, but you’ll find a whole new world of smooth here, as well as a sound that settles in perfectly to your tracks without fighting. The Germanium uses Chandler’s new custom wound transformers that combine the best parts of our favorite St Ives and Gardners input and output transformers.
