Chandler - EMI / Abbey Road Studios - REDD MICROPHONE
Continuing in the rich tradition of innovation at EMI, dating back to the early 1930s with Alan
Blumlein, the father of ʻ Stereoʼ , the companyʼ s first coil microphones, velocity ʻ ribbonʼ mics and
the “Blumlein pair” technique, Chandler Limited and Abbey Road Studios introduce the first new
EMI badged microphone in over a half century, the ʻ REDD Microphoneʼ .
While the aesthetic is unmistakably classic, an ode to a gilded age of audio, the REDD
Microphone is not a U-Type clone, it stands apart and on its own.
The patent pending REDD Microphone represents a shift in traditional microphone design,
bringing together historic circuitry and the heralded EMI REDD.47 preamp sound in a new and
The REDD Microphone is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone, combining mic and
preamplifier into a single, handcrafted professional recording device. Featuring the vacuum tube
based REDD.47 Mic Amplifier circuit coupled directly to a custom handmade premium platinum
membrane capsule, the REDD Microphone can be used with or without an external preamp.
The proximity of the REDD Microphoneʼ s custom capsule to its internal REDD.47 mic preamp
circuit, creates the shortest possible path between the two most important elements in the
recording chain, delivering a larger than life full-bodied sound, with silky smooth top-end.
Features available from the microphone body, include: REDD.47 Mic Amplifier, providing nine
gain selections, from +4 to +33db in the ʻ NORMʼ position, extended gain and punch in ʻ DRIVEʼ
mode for more tonal and coloration possibilities, switchable Cardioid/Omni patterns, 10db Pad,
and Phase reverse. Continuous output control and low-contour feature are accessible from the
high-quality external power supply.
Shockmount, 25ʼ Mogami microphone cable, PSU, and custom molded flight case, featuring highdensity
rigid foam, are included.
