Nova Distribution has been appointed as the new UK and Ireland Distribution Partner for Chandler Limited, Inc. Chandler Limited is recognized globally for signal processing and related music and audio products. In addition, Chandler Limited has become renowned for recreating and delivering to the recording industry the highly sought-after and legendary sound of EMI/Abbey Road Studios recording equipment.
Founded by Wade Goeke back in 1999 from a modest one-man startup under the North Hollywood Hills in California, Chandler Limited celebrated their 15-year anniversary this summer. The company has grown into a flourishing and committed operation. All products are hand-made in the USA with meticulous attention to detail. Chandler Limited recently entered into a new long-term agreement with Abbey Road Studios to continue development and marketing of EMI/Abbey Road Studios’ vintage recording equipment. Chandler enters this new chapter with a new roadmap laid out for the next decade and beyond with what has become an aspirational and high-quality brand within the professional audio technology industry.
Chandler Limited’s founder and Chief designer Wade Goeke commented, “We’re extremely excited for the next Chandler Limited chapter. As we move forward with our new long-term Abbey Road Studios agreement, our new distribution deal with Nova couldn’t have come at a better time. Phil Skins has a ‘can-do’ attitude that works perfectly with Chandler’s approach to our products and customer support. It’s going to be a fun ride.”
A recent visit by Mirek Stiles, Head of Products at Abbey Road Studios, to Chandler’s factory in Shell Rock, Iowa, has determined the next exciting phase to come from this renowned quality partnership. Stiles remarked “Thanks to Chandler Limited, a whole new generation of engineers and producers today have access to EMI hardware, inspired by the very units used to record some of the biggest pop hits in history.”
Nova Distribution’s Phil Skins comments, “Nova is committed to build upon the huge success already established by everyone involved so far. Chandler, and of course Wade, have huge amounts of respect with customers. This sort of craftsmanship appeals to many customer bases from the keen amateur looking to invest in that go-to workhorse, to the studios decked out with TGs, Zeners and Curve Benders. We are keen to represent this new partnership to our dealers with the same transparency and support as offered with all our brand partners. This is a huge opportunity for Nova and we intend to put every ounce of effort into moving forwards and upwards together, for both Chandler and the Nova Dealer Network. We are keen to announce a special press and dealer event at Abbey Road Studios early next year to showcase the next phase of development. Until then if anyone wishes to enquire further, please get in touch. We are here to help.”
