Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 Mic Amplifier is a recreation of the original valve line amplifiers used in Abbey Road Studios’ heralded and rare EMI REDD.51 recording consoles circa 1959-1968. Designed as a central component to the EMI REDD.51 recording console, the original REDD.47 line amplifier was used to amplify virtually every stage of the audio path (mic inputs, line inputs, echo sends and monitors). The REDD.47 lent its unmistakably punchy, aggressive character to music recorded at Abbey Road Studios’ Studio Two between 1964 and 1968, including many tracks by The Beatles. The Chandler Limited REDD.47 Mic Amplifier offers many additional benefits to the original design including increased gain, allowing a range of tonal options from pristine clean sound to classic rich, saturated tone with up to 2% harmonic distortion before clipping. The Chandler Limited REDD.47 preamp easily reproduces the distortions heard on The Beatles’ ‘Revolution.’ Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 tube microphone preamplifier delivers the legendary sound of Abbey Road Studios’ ‘Holy Grail’ preamp, with extra features to meet today’s recording studio standards. Abbey Road Studios, EMI, REDD and their associated logos are trademarks of EMI (IP) Limited.

Chandler REDD microphone

...bit harder to get that elevated harmonic content that I love in all the Chandler gear, but especially in the REDD.47 mic pre and RS124 compressor. Sound wise I think of you could imagine a great U47 combined with a C12. Mine is on order, no vacation in 2017 :lol:

Tube Preamp Options for Vocals

I have two of the pre amps that you've mentioned. The Chandler Redd47 and the Lachappell's. Totally agree with Nathan on his description regarding the Lachapell's. More neutral for certain. The Redd47 is one special pre amp. My favorite tube pre. Truly. None of the companies make inferior products. Chandler and Mercury both have a chassis...
