Product Description

The Chandler Limited Germanium Pre Amp/DI is a microphone preamp designed by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke, that uses classic germanium transistors in an all class A, transformer balanced circuit.

These incredibly smooth sounding transistors were the basis of the earliest transistor designs by Neve (1053, 1055, 1057), EMI (TG12345 MKI), Telefunken, and Fairchild. Those familiar with these units can attest to the special sound of the germanium transistor. The GERMANIUM series runs on +40 volt power, high current, and has a huge +34 output before clipping.

The sound is warm and smooth, as with many vintage style circuits, but you'll find a whole new world of smooth here, as well as a sound that settles in perfectly to your tracks without fighting. The Germanium uses Chandler's new custom wound transformers that combine the best parts of our favorite St Ives and Gardners input and output transformers.

All Germanium units require and function on the PSU-1, Chandler Limited power supply (not included). The PSU-1 has an internal switch for setting voltage to 120V or 220V (115V/230V).
