Historical Pedigree

The TG2-500 Pre Amp pays homage to the legendary EMI TG12428, a cornerstone of the sound behind timeless records from Abbey Road Studios. This piece of history is now encapsulated in a 500 Series format, offering the classic, rich tones to a new generation of audio engineers and producers.

Authentic Replication

Chandler Limited has meticulously replicated the discrete, transformer-balanced amplifiers of the original TG series, delivering a preamp with a creamy, smooth tone and a clear, open top-end. The TG2-500 is not only designed to provide warmth and punch but also to bring a beautiful expansion to the higher frequencies.

Build and Design

The TG2-500 is constructed with a nickel-plated steel chassis, finished in the classic EMI gray. Vintage-style chickenhead knobs add to the authenticity, and each channel provides a range of +5 to +75 dB gain, with additional output and impedance controls, preserving the integrity and versatility of the original design.
