REDD Microphone Nominated for NAMM TEC Award



Chandler Limited is the only company in the world authorized to develop, manufacture, and market the “Official Equipment” of EMI/Abbey Road Studios, delivering the classic analog sounds that recoding and professional musicians seek. Chandler Limited and Abbey Road Studios celebrate the 33rd annual NAMM TEC Awards nomination for the REDD Microphone.

Each year, the NAMM TEC Awards recognizes the individuals, companies, and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games, and multi-media. Award categories span 23 Technical Achievement and 8 Creative Achievement Categories. The NAMM TEC Awards are the “Oscars” of the pro audio and sound recording industry.

The REDD Microphone from Chandler Limited’s EMI/Abbey Road Studios historic series is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone, featuring Chandler’s Founder and Chief Designer, Wade Goeke’s unique “microphone and mic preamp in one unit” design. Developed for Abbey Road Studios, it is the first microphone to wear the EMI brand since the 1930s.

Chandler Limited’s REDD Microphone couples a custom, premium platinum membrane capsule to the historic EMI REDD.47 tube amplifier circuit, adapted for use inside the microphone body. The configuration dramatically reduces distance between the capsule and preamplifier allowing for driving the line as close to the source as possible, resulting in a purer form of audio transmission.
