Chandler Limited in Shell Rock, Iowa, announces that it has entered into a new long-term agreement with Abbey Road Studios in London, UK, to continue Chandler Limited’s development and marketing of EMI/Abbey Road Studios’ vintage recording equipment.
With this new agreement, Chandler Limited’s homage to original EMI/Abbey Road equipment is set to grow well into the future. The official products currently on the market include the TG1 Limiter, TG2 Pre Amp/DI, TG Channel MKII, TG12345 Curve Bender EQ, TG12413 Zener Limiter and the newly released TG2-500 preamp in the 500 Series format.
Over its 82-year history, Abbey Road Studios has hosted artists such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Hollies, Kate Bush, Oasis, Florence and the Machine, Adele, and Lady Gaga. From the 1950s into the 1970s, Abbey Road Studios helped the EMI Record Engineering Development Department create some of the finest recording gear in history, most of which was only available to EMI Studios and was never sold commercially.
“Thanks to Chandler Limited, a whole new generation of engineers and producers today have access to EMI hardware, inspired by the very units used to record some of the biggest pop hits in history,” says Mirek Stiles, Head of Audio Products at Abbey Road Studios. “Abbey Road Studios is extremely proud to be associated with these excellent examples of quality recording hardware. We are delighted that our partnership has been extended and look forward to releasing new products that continue to keep the electronic and musical industries legend alive.”
Chandler Limited’s Chief Designer Wade Goeke says, “I’m delighted to be starting a new era with Abbey Road Studios. We have already logged 10 years together, but this new agreement will allow us to expand our product lines and develop our relationship as a whole. We will be offering products based upon classic EMI equipment that has never been modeled before, including REDD and RS units, as well as new directions in the TG line. There are also a few tricks that we have up our sleeve, which I think will surprise people. We are very excited about what the future holds.”
