In this episode Charlie gets to play with some of his favorite gear from Chandler Limited! Wade Goeke, the mastermind behind the Chandler sound, was kind enough to send us some great gear and we wasted no time getting set up to record (Charlie didn’t actually want to take the TG Channels out of his rack when we were done!).

Let’s take a look at our setups for this episode.

Setup #1:

Kick: MXL A55 – Chandler Germanium Mic Pre (this has some serious mojo!)
Snare: Heil PR30 – Chandler Germanium Mic Pre
Overheads: Audio-Technica AE3000’s – Chandler TG Channel’s
Rooms: Cascade X-15 Stereo Ribbon Mic – Chandler TG2

Setup #2

Kick: MXL A55 – Chandler TG Channel
Snare: Heil PR30 – Chandler TG Channel
Overheads: Audio-Technica AE3000’s – Chandler Germanium Mic Pre Amp
Rooms: Cascade X-15 Stereo Ribbon Mic – Chandler TG2

Setup #3

Kick: MXL A55 – Chandler Germanium
Snare: SM57 – Chandler Germanium
Overheads: MXL V67i’s – Chandler TG2
Toms: Audio-Technica AE3000’s – Chandler TG Channel’s

This gear sounds absolutely awesome. The Germanium is a tone beast and the eq on the TG Channel is second to none. Be sure to download the Full-Bandwidth, Multi-Track Audio files and hear for yourself!
