The Chandler Limited LTD-2 Mastering is a hand-wired Mono/Stereo compressor recreating the 2254/2264/33609 family of compressors originally designed by Mr. Rupert Neve.
The completely handmade LTD-2 uses parts and build-techniques identical to the original's. The grounding, wiring techniques, transformers, transistors, and other components that contribute to the special sound of these units have been painstakingly recreated in each LTD-2. Even the highly polished plated-steel chassis resembles the old units. Chandler has also included some improvements in the form of a 6-position attack switch and faster release times, which make the unit much more versatile, while providing that creamy sound we all crave.
The Chandler Limited LTD-2 is a hand-wired 2254/2264/33609 that has been handmade using parts and build techniques from the original manufacture of the modules. Grounding, wiring techniques, original transformers, transistors, and much more attribute to the special sound of these units and have been painstakingly recreated in each LTD-2. We even make our chassis to resemble the old modules- highly polished plated steel. The LTD-2 uses the control circuit from the family of compressors, but retains the Class A amps and transformers from the the 2254 modules.
