It's always exciting when Chandler Limited comes out with something new. Given their relationship with Abbey Road Studios (a relationship that no one else has), you can be sure that anything Chandler does, will be the real deal. They have access to information that no one else has. They get the testing, opinions, and insight no one else gets. And that, is something that makes their designs so special.
Now enter the announcement of the new Chandler Limited REDD Microphone. This mic was rigorously tested at Abbey Road Studios on a variety of sources, and against some of the most famous and classic microphones in recording industry history. Featuring: nine gain selections - from +4 to +33db in the ‘NORM’ position, extended gain and punch in ‘DRIVE’ mode for more tonal and coloration possibilities, switchable Cardioid/Omni patterns, low-contour control, and more – this is a mic like no other. Oh yeah, did we mention it has a vacuum tube based Chandler Limited REDD.47 Mic Amplifier circuit built right into the mic? Cause it does, making the REDD Mic even more unique in the fact that it can be used with or without an external preamplifier. While there are a lot of great mics out there, there is nothing like this one. Will be exciting to check this one out.
