A re-creation of the amazing-sounding classic
The Chandler Limited TG1 Abbey Road Special Edition is a re-creation of the classic EMI TG12413 limiter used in custom EMI and Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles from the late 60's. The TG Limiter was originally designed to have the characteristics of the Fairchild 660/670, which was adored by many EMI engineers - including Geoff Emerick - but ended up with a very special sound all its own. These rare pieces were never commercially available and only EMI-owned studios had access to them. The Chandler Limited version has been remade from the original design information and circuit board drawings as provided by Abbey Road and EMI to ensure extreme authenticity.

You've simply got to hear one in action to fully appreciate a limiter of this magnitude.
