A unique fusion of microphone and preamp, the Chandler Limited REDD Microphone features a specially designed platinum membrane capsule and Chandler’s EMI REDD.47 tube preamp built right into the body. The choice to house the preamp in the body of the microphone ensures the shortest distance between the capsule and preamp, leaving no chance for noise to sneak into this integral part of the signal chain. It also gives you a full range of both traditional and colorful ways to change the sound including a useful DRIVE switch which provides a pleasing warmth, presence and punch to any signal. A Low-Contour control is accessible from the included power supply, offering an alternate voicing of the mic with a focused low-end and a silky top-end.
With the REDD Microphone, Chandler Limited have maintained their strict attention to detail, build quality, stellar sound and innovative features bundled in an intuitive sturdy design that will last a lifetime. What’s more, this isn’t just another clone of an old classic. The REDD Microphone is an all-new design that has taken everything we love about the legendary microphones of yesteryear and builds on those traditions with modern functionalities and a bold that makes any source sound better!
If you need further re-assurance, the REDD Microphone was rigorously tested and developed at Abbey Road Studios alongside their legendary mic locker. Peter Cobbin, former Chief Engineer at Abbey Road was absolutely impressed with every test and comparison on every source, resulting in the first microphone to wear the EMI seal of approval in over 50 years.
