Chime, grind, and everything in-between.

Developed by Brainworx, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is an exacting emulation of this ultra-responsive, dual EL84-powered boutique guitar amplifier.

Inspired by British classics such as Vox and Marshall — and lesser-known gems from Watkins and Selmer — the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier goes beyond a simple “clone,” offering infinitely tweakable, three-dimensional tones that brim with character.

Use your Apollo to track through a class-A, all-tube, boutique amplifier “in the box,” or re-amp your sounds with any UAD-2 hardware

Audition 75 different Recording Chains hands-free with a selection of mics, cabinets, and high-end outboard gear

Fine-tune your sounds with an onboard FX Rack, including noise gate, EQ filter controls, and host-syncable lo-fi delay

Tweak the tube power amp and preamp sections for unlimited sonic possibilities

Chandler Limited — A Legacy of Tone

Chandler Limited — A Legacy of Tone

For over a decade, Chandler Limited has produced a stunning lineup of handcrafted mic preamps, EQs, and compressors from their storefront shop in Iowa. The company’s dual EL84-powered,19-watt, class-A Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier continues their unsurpassed dedication to tone and ingenious circuit designs that combine vintage flavors with hip tone sculpting options.

Choose from 75 Recording Chains

Choose from 75 Recording Chains

The Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier plug-in offers features not found on the original hardware, greatly adding to its versatility. The FX Rack sports an onboard noise gate, host-syncable lo-fi delay, Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls. But it’s the 75 Recording Chain presets that give you the ultimate in flexibility. Captured through Brainworx’s ultra-rare Neve VXS 72 console, you can audition your sounds through a variety of vintage mics, cabinets, and outboard gear. You can even scroll through Recording Chains in one, two, or four bar increments — keeping your hands on your instrument while auditioning tones.

Dial-in Tube Preamp Dynamics

Dial-in Tube Preamp Dynamics

Use the Input and Bias controls to tweak the GAV19T Amplifier plug-in’s tube preamp section. These controls not only offer myriad tonal shades, they also greatly influence the amp’s interaction and response with your playing touch. Play harder, and the Chandler gushes with dynamic, touch-sensitive grind, or lighten up your attack, and the tones morph into sparkling clean textures.

My new fav

The GAV19T has a unique and specific sound. No wonder it's a studio staple. It sounds sweet straight out of the box and might just be my new go-to amp for everything.

Just What I Needed. ( i can't believe i overlooked this before )

i finally found my Lead Amp,
if i would have known Chandler was right over by me in Iowa, back then, i would be even poorer than i am now.....the GAV19T has the EZ81 rectifier valve, which is stiffer than a 5U4GB, but not as stiff as a GZ-34.. i use the UAD Ampeg B15-N for my clean and crunch, ( 5U4GB ), so the EZ81 type sag is perfect for Leads, on that, by my supply response preferences.

Loving this amp...

Guitar isnt my main instru. Piano is. But for this album I'm producing, I've been playing guitar here and there and some of the tones I've been able to nail are just incredible. Combine that with tape and the guitar just comes to life. i KNOW it wont sound like the real thing but the end listener will not be able to tell the difference. this is literally my first review after using UA plugins for the past 7 years. thats just how good it sounds.

Great amp!

a great match for my single coil Strats and Teles. I've been able to get some of my favourite Gilmour tones using this paired with delay and chorus. I prefer this to all the Marshall emulations.

I listened to the demos and I was fascinated, I thought Woow this is the clean amp I needed, I heard the tone on those demos and it sounded fantastic, I didn't realize it wasn't compatible with Unison and I bought it, I ran to try it with my Fender when Looking for it in the console I couldn't find it, I authorized the plugins up to three times thinking "what's going on?" until I enter the plugin's website and go down to the comments, and there I see a clamor from everyone complaining that it is not Unison. I am deeply disappointed.

Chandler Amp is a must on Drums

Great product like all UAD plugins! I used the chandler for my kick to add distortion and make them cut through my mix better.

Great Amp

So far this is the best amp sim apart from the Marshall which dose a great job being a Marshall
Would love it if the new UAD fender deluxe pedal would make it to a plug-in as a real nice clean tone is something that’s missing from the amp plug-ins on offer

Best Amp!

The only reason for the 4 stars is because there’s no Unison option

B. Spence

Ok for certain sounds

Good plugin for when you need that type of sound. Little to much overdrive for my playing, but did get some good sounds out of it. Wish it would have been a Unison Plugin.

Need an UNISON compatible version. Good amp but not Unison compatible.

My go to California Rock amp

This amp has surprised me big time. Thanks to the trial period UA provide us with I could get to know this wonderful all-ready-to-rock amp. It’s not as famous as many other amps in the game, however It’s the first one I recommend to fresh producers like me. The presets are fat and give us that “in your face” rock n roll element. Go for it!

It needs unison

My first disappointment, I never realised it wasn’t unison and I can feel and hear the difference.... shame, it actually sounds nice but unison rules

K. Boaten

Good sound.... but problematic.

This amps great when it works. However it has a crazy bug were it won't get the settings you saved, or load the pre made settings. Too many problems for the price. I don't recommend it.

Best Class A amp emulation Ive heard.

Great. A plugin that cork sniffer guitarist will like. Please, make it Unison.

Definitely the best amp I ever heard!

The amp that was missing to my plugin arsenal.

I've been looking for the right plugin for clean electric guitar. This one is perfect for me.
Owing a few pre-amp by UAD, the Chandler has its own characteristics and color that are just perfect for what I wanted to achieve.

I'm definitely very happy with this amazing plugin, even though I haven't tried half of its capabilities yet.
Highly recommended.

One of the best amp sims available anywhere.

Amidst the transition to the UA platform and integration into a small composing studio setup primarily based around guitars, the UA amps are truly mind blowingly great. There is a lot to learn as the system and tools are very deep. I looked at the Chandler for a while after purchasing all the Marshall's and the tweed deluxe, the Buxom Betty is killer as well, basically they are all great but after demoing the Chandler, designed in collaboration with Brainworks ****, I was floored with it's performance. It's is extremely versatile and has a beautiful complex and rich pallet of possibilities. BX amps also have a great feature of four presets on the front panel which is huge for tracking or re-amping, it may not seem like such a big deal until you go to another sim that does not have the feature and realize you have to save and load patches through opening the file menu... it's a small step but a bit annoying amidst your workflow.
The Chandlers strong points are the bias control and input controls sitting side by side, these combined with the tone selection presets knob, the input gain and power amp gain controls allow for some very surgical tone tweezing. Lastly the select-able cabinet IR's are very strong with a ton of great options, my only complaint is I have not found one cab IR that features a 4x10 cabinet or an open back 4x10 cab, seriously missing it on that one... Fender Super reverb, Bassman, Peavy Classic 50 yadda yadda, but guys like Johnny Winter and many others swear by 4x10 open back cabs, my favorite for whatever that's worth. But there are 4x10 IR's available.
Summary: The Chandler is a killer for anything, then factor the pilots knowledge of designing input and output chains to print? It's pretty much limitless. 2¢ Yadda... one of the greatest things I ever learned about how to create and print a truly stunning guitar track was found while watching a Hendrix documentary where the engineer broke down many of JH's most memorable tracks... in short, Jh was not just running through a Marshall and a fuzzface, there were often 3 or 4 amps and tracks blended together on different tracks and composited together in the mix. Hopefully we all will get the opportunity to play live through two different 4x12 Marshall's of choice, a Chandler and Tweed Deluxe, and maybe a dual rectifier for added stupidity... but unlikely & ragingly impractical unless you are Joe Bonamassa, but now you can in the studio, and it's almost free. I used the chandler paired with the UA Blues-breaker on a project recently and it was an amazing tone to play & print with, the Chandler brought a unique sheen and polish to contrasting the Blues-Breakers darker grittier vibe. It's a winner. Cheers.

A must have for slides and leads

I’ve been a professional drummer as a side job for over 40 years. In those jobs I’ve been surrounded by all kinds of guitarists and their rigs (some good sounding and some not so good). So I know what I like when it comes to electric guitar sounds. In my home studio I play all instruments for my music. I have purchased many guitar plug ins and have found many to be great for filling a certain niche although sound similar to the others for most of their pre-sets. This plug-in is no exception in that it also fits a niche. The difference with this one though is that the others don’t come close to doing what this does well. One reviewer criticized it as sounding boxy. If you are looking for a metal grind sound look elsewhere. This is a great plug in for slides and leads. I use a strat and add the UA AKG spring reverb plug-in (my favorite e. guitar reverb plug-in) and the sound is to die for. Which the short demo video and you’ll hear what I’m talking about.
