Overview

The Chandler GAV19T was inspired by classic British amps like Selmer, Vox and Marshall but with new added features that make it incredibly flexible. From the bias control that affects only the preamp tube bias, to the drive section that provides a treble boost, a full range boost and two flavors of mid boost for just the power amp section, to the Baxandall style tone controls, this amp’s palette runs from clean to crunchy to shred-worthy chaos. Brainworx, in partnership with Chandler Ltd. has faithfully recreated this special amp as a native plugin; so now you can record killer sounding guitar tracks through your interface while a baby is sleeping next door, or quickly bring a weak sounding guitar track in your mix up to snuff. The 75 impulse responses, developed at the Brainworx studio, using their vast array of speaker cabinets, mics and outboard gear, instantly give you sounds it would take an experienced engineer in a state of the art room all day to get.

The plugin version also includes some extremely useful features not found on the original amp including a noise gate, delay and power soak. 

The GAV19T plugin’s classic British sounds, combined with its wide range of tones, make it an incredibly useful tool to any Producer/Musician who records electric guitars. Download the full function 14-day demo (no dongle required!) today and hear for yourself the classic tones of this guitar amp sim.
