Shell Rock, IA – November 2019… This year marks the 20th anniversary of pro-audio manufacturer Chandler Limited. Chandler Limited commemorates this milestone with a special series documenting the sonic journey of founder, Wade Goeke, and the company’s unique relationship with the iconic EMI / Abbey Road Studios; the most famous recording studios in the world.
Chandler Limited, renowned for its modern-day productions of the historic recording equipment originally designed by EMI for its studios — including Abbey Road — and greatly expanded and reimagined for the modern recording environment, now boasts a lineup of 24 recording studio “must haves,” with 13 of them proudly carrying-on the history, heritage and lineage of EMI / Abbey Road Studios.
Abbey Road’s Mirek Stiles, Head of Audio Products adds — “When I first met Wade I was still working as an assistant engineer at Abbey Road. Having had the pleasure of using both original TG and REDD equipment I was really impressed with his knowledge and respect towards this gear, that at the time wasn’t really on many people’s radar. Wade’s love and enthusiasm for the legacy of work started by EMI technical legends like Mike Batchelor, Len Page and Bill Livy is unparalleled. It’s always inspiring working with Wade and the Chandler team and I’m very proud of what we have accomplished together. I wish them a very happy anniversary.”
Today, Chandler Limiter’s equipment can be found in studios around the world, helping to build the aural tapestries of some of the great artists, produces and engineers in modern music.
