Chandler Germanium Pre/DI

The Chandler Germanium Pre/DI is a 1U germanium transistor-based Class A single-channel pre-amp and DI unit.


A modern classic, the Chandler Germanium Pre/DI takes the characteristic sound of the germanium transistor, originally used in some of the most iconic circuits in the world, including Neve and Fairchild, and puts it to work in this single channel pre-amp and DI.


Built around custom-made transformers, the Chandler Germanium Pre/DI brings a rounded, full-bodied sound to your recordings, especially suited for vocalists. As well as the Input Gain on the Germanium Pre/DI, Chandler Limited also includes a unique Feedback control for additionally increasing the gain and THD of your input signal, to bring out the best of the tonal subtleties of the germanium transistors. In addition, the Chandler Germanium Pre/DI includes a novel Thick control, to provide an even warmer, fuller sound with less top-end emphasis, to the circuit. Pad, Phantom and Phase switches are also conveniently located nearby on the Germanium Pre-amp front panel.


Hand-made to the same exacting standards that Chandler Limited impose on all the products it issues, the Chandler Germanium Pre/DI is a painstaking and original update on a previous concept noted for its great sound properties.


The original designs were last used in the days of flower-power, when germaniums were everywhere - with the Chandler Germanium Pre/DI bringing back that magical pre-amp sound.
