The Sound of EMI/Abbey Road!

The Chandler Limited EMI TG12345 Curve Bender EQ is the definitive TG equalizer, released in celebration of Abbey Road Studios' 75th birthday. The brainchild of Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke and Abbey Road senior engineer Peter Cobbin, the Curve Bender is based on the vintage EMI TG12345 console used on Beatles and Pink Floyd recordings. This latest EMI equalizer carries on the tradition of EMI EQs that began in 1951 with the RS56 (cheekily dubbed "the Curve Bender" by EMI designers), and continued with the 1968's TG12345 and TG12412 in '74. A classic design - the gorgeous-sounding TG12345 - juiced with it with modern features. That's the Chandler Limited EMI TG12345 Curve Bender.

  • A fully featured version of a classic EQ
  • Powerful functionality gives your serious sound shaping mojo
  • You get the best of both worlds: vintage warmth, plus modern features
A fully featured version of a classic EQ

The Chandler Limited EMI TG12345 Curve Bender EQ is the embodiment of a dream. It was during his mixing of numerous Beatles-related projects (Anthology, Yellow Submarine, Imagine, etc.), it occurred to Peter Cobbin that having a fully featured and highly flexible version of the original desk EQ units would be invaluable. After Wade Goeke presented him with a working version of the legendary console equalizer, Peter realized he could "have it all," and set Wade to building the perfect beast.

Powerful functionality gives your serious sound shaping mojo

Peter had requested four bands, and filters based on the slopes of the original console - but with overlapping and expanded options. In the final production unit, the 9 selections of the original TG12345 had become 51 EQ points. Wade also added a multiply switch that increases boost/cut to 15dB (as well as sharpening the Q), in addition to filters and bell/shelf selections on the high and low bands.

You get the best of both worlds: vintage warmth, plus modern features

The result is the Chandler Limited EMI TG12345 Curve Bender - a classic equalizer from the glorious history of EMI and Abbey Road that's come full circle, morphing into a modern powerhouse EQ perfect for all your recording, mixing, and mastering needs.
