Tonight, we´re gonna take the Carnhill transformers out of the Chandler LTD-1 and replace them with vintage Marinair`s to see what differences there might be!
This Chandler has Neve 1073 cards installed from factory, I think all the early one did (if there´s any modification to these I dont know)
We did some recordings at different gain settings on snare, acc guitar... before, so now its switch time and then some recording again.
Im posting the results later on if anyone is interested.
A quick sample for now, a snare with Md421 Telefunken, first in this example the Chandler LTD-1 with Carnhill, then the Marinairs! -40 db, no eq
